what exactly was the reason for blocking the card?

if it was for NO or WRONG reason, you can claim damages for the inconvenience, mental harassment caused to you by way of filing a consumer complaint in the concerned District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum of your area.

File a complaint before branch first if they don't resolve same in 30 days file a complaint before the banking ombudsman. 

Alternatively you can file a consumer complaint but in my view ombudsman is better remedy.

You have to bet in touch with bank than us to unlock the card.

There must be something missing for which it is taking time to unblock the card.

Go and meet the officials and have word in person to resolve the issue.

In general it takes around 3-5 days to unblock the card for security reasons. 

If in spite of compliance of all the formalities the blocking of card is not lifted then file a case before the consumer forum seeking damages and compensation.

You should consider filing a complaint with the home branch to unblock your card.

If they fail to do so, you can file a complaint against them to the banking ombudsman.

Have you spoken to the manager about this?

What was his reply?

Any legal action that you may propose to take will further delay the unblocking of your card.

It is just five days, so you may wait until Monday and then approach the manager in person and get the issue sorted out in person, if you dont get any proper response, you may resort to legal action by dragging them to consumer court for relief and remedy though it may take plenty of time for disposal.
