Consumer complaints and reviews about HDFC Bank

Deficiency of Service


On new year I travelled to Europe with family. On 28th Dec I detected that my Debit card is not functioning neither at ATM nor at the Merchant establishmnt. I called their phone banker from Paris and he refused to help and suggested me to call the branch. But I told him that I dont have branch numbers also the branch was closed by that time but person refused to offer anyhelp to unblock my card. Next day I called my personal banker, she promised to get the card unblocked in less than 5 minutes but the card did not work. Subsequently I wrote to their gervience redressal cell and strangely after few reminders from my side I got the reply that my card is working but the fact was different. This was the time that I had ran out of money and I could not buy food for my kids, I missed my flight, I had no money to pay taxi or hotel bills and I had to request a friend travel from amsterderm to help me. During this time I hd made several calls to HDFC bank but of no help. finally my card was unblocked on 2nd Jan end of the day. But by then my holidy was spoilt, I had been taken to police, I have lived without food, I had acted like a beggar and most importantly I had made international calls worth Rs 50000.
Once back I lodged my complaint in HDFC bank and I asked them for compensation. Strangely they said that they can apologise and nothing else they can do. As a result I have stopped all their payments due to them on my credit card and have told them that I am incapacitated for making payments and all what I can do is Apologise. If they expect me to accept the apology then they should also accept my apology.
Now they have loaded huge finance charges and other levies and have almost doubled the outstanding and they are now threatening me on account of CIBIL, this is absolutely unfair.
I have adequate money in my account with them but them they have to act professional and not use the weapon they have unfairly. I am open to fight them in court of law but with using cibil is like hitting below the belt.

Can I get some help.................

But after that day i did not get any call from hdfc & they put my saving account balance Rs.36000 aprox on hold. Kindly look into this.

credit card prepayment charges

I am banking with HDFC bank from 7 years i never had any problem with my banking with HDFC bank before even if i had a problem like posting of stolen checks on my account with the HDFC banks own problem i still continued my banking and even i increased my banking with hdfc and continued buying more services from hdfc .Now i keep savings account ,demat account and credit card account with HDFC. i preffered HDFC over other banks as i had feeling the nature the HDFC BANK give us service is very much customer friendly. but i was shocked with the malpractice used by HDFC bank credit card department in just disbursing its loan.. follow the story below.

i had received a call from HDFC CREDIT CARDS and they were offering me loan against my credit card upto 1 lack on my credit card . i needed some money for my personnel purpose and they were offering me it 1 lakh without any transaction charges or file charges .before opting for a loan i had confirmed with the representative on phone call about pre-payment penalties on my loan. they said its 3% of the amount which would be left when i will be making payment i confirm this thing with two people who offered me the loan and on the other call which came for the confirmation. they said sir there would not be any other charges.i said ok please put the offered money in my account.
. i inquired the credit card department regarding this issues so i received a E-mail which states that ,the service charge which is being put according to the GOVT. new law which put the charge on all banking services.
i have no idea about what is the definition of service which HDFC bank following and more to it.
help me understand when i am making a payment using your Hdfc bank savings account to credit card which part of the service i am availing from you.
apart from it when i took a loan our contract clearly mentions there would not be any other charges more than 3% would be levied on pre-payment of loan but now HDFC bank is asking for total loan amount +3 % of prepayment charge +15% of taxes on prepayment of loan

regarding change in phone number

I am trying to contact HDFC customer service from last 2 days. But no response, no one will answer. Only "Thank you for your pateince". What is the use of such poor customer service. If you are ready to answer then please remove that contact number.

020 6160 6161 and 9890603333 are the numbers, which I was trying. I need to reset my internet banking password urgently as I forgot my previous password.

I don't think there is use of phone banking in this.
