      Dear Sir,

      To open the consolidated statement file the password is “TAN_RequestNo”. For example if you have a TAN “MUMA00000A” and the request number for the file is 123456 then the password will be “MUMA00000A_123456”. If the file is still not opening you can email the file to for checking if the file downloaded is having some problem.
