A. Sir in my opinion, since you're being harassed by the recovery agents, an injunction suit against the bank and recovery agents can be filed. A civil injunction suit with an ad-interim relief can be filed in the civil court against the bank and recovery organization. It should be possible to guarantee that bank authorities and recovery agents so that stop harassing you, and look into your situation to settle the problem
