Maintenance Charge

I wasn't maintaining balance in my hdfc account.

Online Fastag HDFC application no. is HFR941890

I had applied for Fastag via HDFC online facility and the application no. is HFR941890 and paid Rs.500/-, 10 days ago. I haven't received any mails further neither Tag. The toll free number is simple waste which is always busy. There is not other way to contact the bank in this regards.

HDFC is looting public money using this opportunity, such a cheap trade. I further request all not to apply fastag through HDFC online rather go in person to get the same.

Minimum balance charge


I'm a customer with hdfc bank for more than 4 years. Few weeks back the bank charged rs. 1100 for not maintaining a minimum balance of 10000rs WITHOUT INFORMING me through mail or phone. Everyday they are calling for loan and credit card and all non sense. I visited the bank but they are not responding well.

They should have informed me about the charge prior to the incident. Since I'm a student 1100 rupees is very valuable to me. Kindly look into the issue and process my refund amount. My current balance is -90 in my account.

Unfair deduction of money

I opened an salary account with HDFC few months back. I didn't made any transactions by this account. But it automatically got converted to savings account without informing me. Now from past 2 months they are deducting minimum charges from my account and the balance is negitive now. On enquiring with customer care, they refused from closing the account with clearing my dues.

Account has insufficient funds


Myself Navaneeth Krishna holding a salary account with HDFC bank where I use bank's debit card and net banking facilities for all my financial transactions. By the end of 13th August, I had Rs.1,700+ and on 15th when I had to fuel my car (for 1000 rupees), transaction got declined. Managed to find an ATM nearby which didn't render my money but informed that my account has insufficient funds. This is unacceptable. I wanted to know why my account has gone for overdrawn position, why I was not informed prior and how do I get my car back from the fuel station? I'm raising this formal complaint to investigate further and to get back my hard earned money.

Now I want to close this account without pay this minus amount.

Harassment from HDFC Bank

My HDFC Credit Card Number is ################.
I have been using this card for over 5 Years. I have not been getting my hard copy statements from them despite multiple requests, due to which we had avoided using our HDFC Card. In the month of March 2018, we had spent Rs 1340 on the card, and we received a statement in June 2018 amounting to Rs 3597. When questioned about this, we are informed that it is due to late payment fee and the customer care was not ready to talk further on this and instead gave us a number- 04423748701 to sort this.But unfortunately, this number is always busy/ unreachable and they do not provide an alternate contact or call back as well. We then paid them a part amount by cheque to sort the issue but the cheque did not get cleared till date and we are not informed anything on this, nor do we know the reason. The next month, we received a statement for Rs 4218, for which we had written a letter to the HDFC, and till date there is no response from them on this. The next month we have received a statement for Rs 2701, and it states that the issue would be Referred to RBI Approved Credit Bureaus.
There has been an unnecessary harassment from HDFC Bank. Firstly they had updated wrong mail id on the card and they do not respond to mails sent from other IDs. They give a contact which cannot be reached any moment. The customer care does not sort the issue. There is no response to the letter. They do not send hard copy statements on time. How will a customer sort an issue if this is the way they work?

Need to close my bank account immeidately

Hi ,
Have experienced a worst service with HDFC bank for the last few years .
Never my personal banker Meena.M is reachable at 044-66748602 . Also they never call back to us.
No one is ready to hear what problem their customer has. The card blocking request is alone processed on immediate basis in few seconds . But what about other services . A very poor customer service is provided at HDFC bank end . They don't even know the meaning for Prime customer, but they refer us with that term . I need my account closure to be initiated immediately .
Thanks and Regards ,
Uma Maheswari . S
