HDFC Bank Reactivate account

Since last one month I have gone 25-30 times to HDFC Bank ( Branch at teen batti chauraha, Ujjain). There was a fraud transaction that took place via my account. So I had blocked my account and card online. Till today I'm not able to reactivate the account. Sometimes the system is not working. Yesterday the biometric was not working. Today I reached the bank at 10:10. The concerned staff was busy talking with her colleagues. After 5 minutes when she realised I suppose that she should attend me, she gave me the biometric to put my finger. After that she said to wait for 5 minutes and the entire staff members at the bank went for breakfast. I had to still wait for more 10 minutes. Why don't the bank keep their starting time at 11 am.

HDFC Bank Salary account opening experience

Rohan R Rajore :- [protected]
HDFC Bank Madhapur, Hyderabad, Telangana :-
Gr Flr, GNR & RV Insignia, Image Gardens Rd, VIP Hills, Jaihind Enclave, Madhapur, Telangana 500081
Below is my experience what I felt today :-
Very bad experience. 😌
The staff made me feel "what have I done wrong that I came to this branch to open a salary account".
What is the time it takes to open a salary account?
My friend opened online in 10 mins.
I too tried it but glitches occurred online due to which with my number their where many leads generated for that branch. So it was not opened online and they said to visit the branch.

I visited, the first person I talked was the "Customer Experience staff". I conveyed my problem, he suggested me to go home and come after 7 days when lead gets expired. I asked him what should I wait this much can't you cancel the lead now? Then he sent me to a different desk to convey my problem. The next desk person listned me carefully and then said " sir for kyc you have to visit your nearest branch where you live in hyderabad, I said him the lead is generated in this bank other branches has told me to visit this branch and now you are saying me to visit other branch? 🤔

Then when we questioned him then he is giving solution to me that ok sir we will do your kyc here.
Then he sent me to the customer experience staff then that person told me to sit.
I was waiting for atleast 20 mins patiently, then he calls me tells give your adhar number, then he give me documents to fill and sign it. During which again he wasn't asking me to give him documents rather he was doing his other work for at least 15 min. Then he took my documents then he gave me another document to fill, then he tells me to take a selfie and email him. But in bank their is no network for Airtel, I ask him how can I email him, he is laughing and ignoring me and cracking joke on Airtel then after 10 mins he says you can go!

I am shocked, that is my account created, he says yes its done you can go.
Now do realize the process which my friend did online was 10 mins, but when I visited the branch the same process they made me to do it ilnearly 2 hrs.
Above I explained you the process, the readers can judge themselves signing three papers, and sending a selfie takes 2 hrs to process by the employees of bank. When I was leaving other employees where smiling at me.! as they have wantedley done this to me. If you want hdfc services, surely go any branch but not this. This was my experience where I learnt to have patience when front person wants me to loose it.

😅

Desired outcome: Transfer my account to different branch without needing me to visit bank.

HDFC Bank Offshore investments

I have an NRI account with HDFC Bank Kollam Branch and was having all my life saving for the last 20 years that is above 2 Cr. There is a criminal gang working in association with HDFC Abu Dhabi Branch which includes the Relation Ship Manager Anu Joy and Radheep Radhakrishnan from Abu Dhabi Branch. This gang will approach NRI having considerable bank balance and offer investment options through Abu Dhabi Branch. If you are in their contact all your savings will be nullified to zero within a short span of less than one year. What I mean I lost all my money and I have to pump more money to get release from them. They are not even worth of local chit companies and absolutely no security for your hard earned money. This is type of a professional financial fraud group. The most deadly part is the harassment after loosing your money. So many customers are affected and ruined their life due to this criminals. Initially they will inquire the details of all your assets and they will make a plan to loot the entire money. They will grow with your money and likely you will be at street. Beware of such fraud gang working under the shelter of HDFC and keep away from such sadist gang. Mostly they are concentrating on NRI having enough bank balance. There are many fraud gang working inside this group and uplifting their family with other hard earned money. Let god decide their punishment. In order to save your life please keep away from such notorious gang contacts. They don't feel the pain of losing the life savings as they are like parasites living with others money. Today me and their hands are spreading for other to grow their family.

HDFC bank investment is not even worth as a local cooperative bank.

There are trained financial fraud personnel named Relationship Managers ( Radheep Radhakrishnan in my case) will explain that highest secure investment option is Bond investment. He will promise that you don't have to invest anything further with the bank. Only thing you have to provide security of your Indian NRE fixed deposit and against they will give 2 to 3 times loan with only additional 0.5% interest rate / year whereas you will get 5% return in addition to Indian NRE FD interest rate. Once you are trapped they will increase the loan interest rate to above 6% and you will not be in a position to close the bond as the price will be drastically down. They will keep on encouraging you stating that this is a market condition and you will get entire money upon maturity. HDFC or Bond issuer don't declare the maturity date and you forced to pay the high interest rate. One fine morning you will get a communication from HDFC stating that they will not finance for this bond anymore and pay back the money invested and accordingly they will liquidate all your NRE FD without your knowledge and block all your assets with the Bank. All your savings will be sucked by this criminals. Once you reached this stage the harassment will be extreme level and force the investor to end his life.

We have complained to all levels in HDFC and below is the response from HDFC MD which is self explanatory.

At the outset we regret the inconvenience caused to you.

Please find below the extracts of the Sanction letter and master agreements consented by you, which clearly specifies that the client is availing of the investments out of his own free will and after having obtained independent professional legal and tax advice and about the AT1 risks.

HDFC Bank HDFC Keshtopur Kolkata shows lack of cooperation regarding withdrawal and closure of current a/c

I, Nilanjana De, have a current a/c in the name of Spead Your Wings Music Foundation, with HDFC Keshtopur, Kolkata branch. It is lying dormant for years since the NGO is non-existent (not re-registered after the first year of its operations) in 2014.

On 21st March 2023, I received a mail from HDFC asking me to declare beneficial owners of the dormant a/c. A few days prior to receiving this email, I had received a call from my virtual relationship manager Mr Shamik Chakraborty regarding the same.

After receiving the mail, Shamik effectively guided me to go to the branch, show the documents and explain the situation to the bank.

I took all the documents to the branch and showed it to Ms Prerna Pandey, Asst. Manager, HDFC, Keshtopur, Kolkata.

I was the Founder Secretary of the NGO. The a/c had been opened and had three more trustees were the authorised signatories: Ananya De, my sister was the Asst. Secretary, and two more people were there with whom I am not in touch since mid-2020. One of them was the Treasurer whose resignation letter (enclosed with the email) I had tried to show it to Prerna. She refused to see all the other documents that I was carrying as per Shamik's guidance. She said that it is not required because as per her, Shamik being the "third party relationship manager was not aware of the internal policies".

Being the founder of the NGO, I had invested a good amount for my personal account but ultimately could not continue with my initiative, and the a/c was lying dormant for years.

Prerna Pandey gave me two solutions:

(1) To close the account and she would give a DD in the name of the NGO, which doesn't exist. Once again I told her that the NGO is non-existent and I am not in touch with the other two people since the time I resigned from the company in mid-2020.

So she smiled and gave the 2nd solution, but she went on harping on the 1st solution. Basically, she was reluctant to give me my money.

(2) The 2nd solution was to activate the dormant account by giving a chq of ₹10/- from some account and make the status active. After that we could withdraw the amount that's lying in the account. After that I could close the account with the form that she gave us.

Again I had told her that it would be difficult to get the signatures of the other two ex-members since I am not in touch with them since mid-2020 after I left my job.

Still I did as was instructed by Prerna and Shamik, and deposited a chq of ₹10/- to activate the dormant account. Now after the account got activated, I got in touch with Shamik regarding the next step. He checked and found out that Prerna has activated the account but kept it in the "no debit" mode, and supposedly have said that I had not submitted the required documents.

I had repeatedly mentioned this problem to Ms Prerna Pandey. If HDFC can't come up with a solution then why did the lady ask me to activate the dormant account, withdraw the money and close it?

I knew that she would make things difficult. What Prerna's doing now is not a process-oriented behaviour. She is simply refusing to co-operate in my case. Probably, she would have cooperated if there was no money lying in the account. Well, I am not surprised at her lack of cooperation since I was observing her unnecessary rude attitude towards her junior colleagues in front of us, the customers.

I don't know from which angle she's perceiving the entire situation. The amount that is lying in the account is a paltry one, if I am not mistaken. I don't know if she's thinking that the small amount would hugely contribute to HDFC's profit margins if she stops the withdrawal, as I won't be able to get the signatures of the other two people on the closure form. I can only get the signature of my sister Ananya De.

The bank may choose to co-operate or not co-operate with me but one thing is for sure, in future, I would discourage people to deal with HDFC because the private banks and institutions help us customers to easily get accounts but create difficulties for us during the time of account closure especially when there's this kind of a weird situation, as mine.

I have been overcharged, I paid all my dues a few months back but was still charged. I contacted customer support and no help from their end. Please avoid banking with HDFC a worst ever bank that doesn't care about its own customers. They always have hidden charges on the statements, please don't apply for any cards from HDFC.

HDFC Bank Forex card

I placed an order with David Jones Australia for a Philips 7000 series trimmer. On the next day the company cancelled the order as the item was not in stock.

I was told by David Jones customer care that the refund had been processed and it was my bank that's not approving the transaction.

The amount is $170.10 AUD and the order ID is [protected].

Message from David Jones:

"Hi my name is Gita, from David Jones Customer Services and I will be assisting you with your enquiry today. I have checked your order, and can see that we have been unable to validate some details in your order. With that in mind, we have cancelled your order. Please note that as your order has been cancelled prior to the capture of the order, no funds have been withdrawn, just made temporarily unavailable. Therefore, the money may still appear in your account as pending transaction which is usually released by your bank within 10 business days, giving you a full access to the funds again. Hope this provides you with some assistance. If there is anything else we may assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact us again 🙂"

It has been 13 days since the order was cancelled.

HDFC Bank Netbanking

The time-out for HDFC bank is way too less. It automatically signs me out of the session every time I look to do something.

Apart from this, the credit card management options are not very user-friendly. I am not able to see the Spends of my current cycle. Also the rewards associated with my purchases are not mapped because of which I never i get to understand where & how my rewards are getting generated
