There are two types of answers defined for HARQ mechanism:

ACK – meaning – I received the transport block and it’s correct;
NACK – meaning – I received the transport block and it’s not correct.
There’s of course the third option – namely, no answer/feedback. It may mean:

either: Rx has received Tx transport block, and send the feedback, but Tx didn’t get the feedback;
or: Rx has not received Tx transport block at all.

While UE in CDRX and eNB receive NACK instead of ACK from UE. After UE sends HARQ feedback UE is not expecting an Retransmission and moved to DRX OFF. But eNB is retranmitting it, How UE handles this?
