Consumer complaints and reviews about HDFC Bank

To whom ever it may concern.

I would like to highlight the true culture of HDFC Bank in Bangalore location. Tusar nigam is a Branch manager of Old airport Road branch. Mr. Nigam has very wrong attitude and he has spoiled banks internal culture and because of his wrong attitude and misbehaviour many employees has left their job. It's a matter of serious concern that the management has to take it very seriously and also management should sack or terminate him immediately. Why they have given the Branch manager role to a person who doesn't know how run the Branch and also not fit for any kind of role. Many of my colligue and friends of HDFC Bank they are so innocent and best people in the society they had mentally harassed by Branch manager. We also had seen that he has very wrong attitude specially towards ladies. Why and how this person is continuing in the bank and why not top management is taking serious step. I request to the management of HDFC bank to take necessary step to remove Mr. Tushar Nigam in order to bring good culture and peace to the old airport Branch in Bangalore location.

HDFC has deducted my money, how is it our fault when we were not aware of mainting a balance and moreover it is not out fault that our company changed to another bank.

Charged negative balance in savings account


My balance in savings account went to negative for not maintaining minimum balance. I deposited money into my account to maintain minimum balance. As per my understanding, Reserve Bank of India has made it clear that the banks cannot make the balance negative for maintaining minimum balance. Please look into it

Applying penalty for not maintaining balance, without informing about salary account changed to saving account

Dear Sir/Madam,

I joined a software company in 2015. For this company they made me to open salary account in HDFC Bank (Branch - BASAVESHWARANAGAR, bangalore). Later 1 year I quit the job and joined new company, there I opened another salary account with some other bank. So I was not using my HDFC bank account. Later 1 day I loged into netbanking with HDFC then I saw -9500 amount (negative amount). Then I got to know that HDFC bank were charging penalty amount for not maintaining minimum ammount. As I was not knowing that I have to maintain minimum balance for salary account I neglected to close. But without bringing to my notice HDFC bank as been changed my salary account to saving account and they started to charging 600 penalty amount every month, now its total amount is -9500 ( negative amount).

Please I'm from middle class family, I cant pay 9500 amount to HDFC bank (charged amount for not maintaining minimum amount), that too they charged without bringing to my knowledge. So I like to complaint on HDFC Bank (Branch - BASAVESHWARANAGAR, bangalore), for doing there fraud things and charging amount for not maintaining minimum balance.
If they have called or communicated like your salary account has been changed to saving account and you have to maintain minimum balance, then I would have closed by bank account in HDFC bank.

Please address my complaint, as they are doing the same with other people and robbing amount from middle class family.

Waiver the negative account balance

My hdfc salary account was opened, while I was working in my first company. It's almost 1 year now, I have resigned from there. And currently I'm pursuing my higher education. Recently I got a message that due to non-maintenance of monthly average balance for the account (which I was unaware and unprecedented about it), I have to pay fine for the same. As I'm a student, I'm not in a position to pay the penalty and maintain the monthly average balance. Due to all these circumstances, I want you to know that I'm not interested in continuing the banking service with you. So please close my account and waiver the fine amount.

Negative Balance of not maintaining Salary Account

It’s more than two years since I left my Company. I’m no longer associate with the company or your HDFC Salary Account. It is illegal to charge for not maintaining the minimum balance.

I am no longer using any of your HDFC services. I do not need this account due to personal inconvenience.
It is showing negative balance(-8500 Rs.) Due to your non maintenance charges still deducting money from this account on monthly basis.

Today I had visited in my home branch but the branch manager has refused to close.

AMB charges Discrepancy

Hi Team,

My name is Rashmi Phutane. I am writing this mail to compain against my Bank(HDFC branch Kasturi nagar Bangalore) for undue charges in my account. details as follow

I am an account holder with HDFC bank A/c no:- 50100076316857. I was charged following my account .

Below are the Transaction details

Date charged Amount

15-Nov-18 17.7
15-Nov-18 708
15-Nov-18 708
15-Nov-18 706.85

The account was opened as salary account with my last organisation 3.5 years back. During the account opening procedure, Bank executive did not inform me that

 My HDFC salary account will be automatically be changed to saving account once I quit the organisation

 And that i need to maintain any average quarterly balance AQB or AMB (average monthly balance)

I was not even communicated via mail or call by my relationship manager that I need to maintain any balance to avoid minimum balance charges. Because of the above blunder & negligence of the bank, I have been charged the fees mentioned above without my knowledge.

I have wrote a mail to HDFC Bank Manager Mr. Sanjib as suggested by my RM on 21st November 2018. However, even after a reminder mail I haven’t heard back from the bank.

I request you to kindly help me get my money refund and close the matter.

Thanks & regards

Deactivate Smart Pay

Every month my prepaid mobile is getting recharged for Rs.100 through Smart pay option and the amount is getting debited from my credit card. I never activated this option and unable to deactivate this option using HDFC Net Banking website.
When I called Customer Care and told them about the issue, they disconnected the call saying Servers are busy...We cant process your request.
Seeing the number of similar complaints from many people, I believe strict corrective measure is mandatory to address all these complaints since HDFC's reputation is at stake.

HDFC Bank - inst-alert chg inc gst apr-jul2018-mir

I have seen the following charges in my hdfc salary account.

1. Hdfc has started charging once every quarter

2. Inst-alert chg inc gst apr-jun2018 charging for instant alert for the account. When opening the account they mentioned that this service was free and now they are charging . this has been done for many quarters now

They should inform the customer before charging. You cannot hold the customer at ransom.

I am not sure how to resolve this please advice...
