HDFC Bank fund transfer options

If you have an account at HDFC Bank, you can transfer funds through several authorised methods:

  1. e-Monies Electronic Funds Transfer - This is a facility through which you can transfer funds nation-wide, from any bank branch to another. This method of funds transfer is easier, faster (as there is no requirement for cheques or demand drafts), and more convenient than the conventional options.
  2. RTGS Funds Transfer - This method of funds transfer can be performed between banks, and the transaction is done in real-time. Since real-time funds transfer is facilitated, it is faster than other methods. Settlement cycles are also quicker and the facility covers wider boundaries.
  3. Visa CardPay - You can pay a VISA credit card bill using this facility, irrespective of the bank that issued the bill. The service is quick and efficient, and can be conveniently accessed from your office/home. The payments are processed at negligible costs, and is safe and secure.
  4. IMPS - The Immediate Payment Service from HDFC Bank is an instant electronic fund transfer service that happens in real time. This service enables you to send and receive money on Bank Holidays, Sundays, or even late at night. The money that is transferred is credited directly to the beneficiary account.
  5. Unified Payment Interface (UPI) - Through UPI, you can transfer funds in a safer, faster, and hassle-free manner, through a Virtual Payment Address (VPA). You do not need to divulge your personal details such as mobile number, IFSC code, or account number for initiating transactions. Transactions are all secure, as they are authorised through an MPIN, that is known only to the customer. The UPI also allows you to request for fund transfer, unlike other facilities.

HDFC Bank Mobile Banking: Security Measures

  • There will not be any information stored on your SIM card or mobile phone. So, in case the phone is stolen or misplaced, your account is completely safe and will not be compromised. Additionally, you can call up customer service and report the theft of your phone. The bank will then deactivate your IPIN and a fresh one will be issued.
  • Only the customer can login to his account with the Customer ID and the Internet PIN (IPIN) that is a confidential field. All account information will be stored in a 128-bit SSL protected format.
  • If the IPIN is entered five times incorrectly in a consecutive manner, the bank blocks the use of the IPIN.

HDFC Mobile Banking: Do’s and Dont’s

Here is a list of pointers that you need to follow when you use HDFC Bank Mobile Banking:


  • Always protect your mobile phone with a secure password. You should also look to set a maximum number of incorrect password submissions to three.
  • When selecting a password, make sure it is strong with alphanumeric and special characters so that your data is safe.
  • You should frequently check your account statements for transactions that are unauthorised.
  • Your IPIN should be changed on a regular basis.
  • If your phone is stolen or lost, report the same to the police and your service provider immediately.


  • You should never share your confidential information or PIN with anyone. Take care not to reveal this over the internet or the phone at any point of time.
  • Do not fall prey to links at social networking sites or in emails that claim to be from the bank.
  • Never transfer funds to a recipient without proper verification. You should be aware that once funds are transferred, the process cannot be reversed.
  • Don’t store critical information like mobile banking password, user ID, credit card details, etc. anywhere on your phone.
  • When your mobile number changes, you should inform the bank of the same, and update your registered number with the bank.
  • Don’t write down PINs or retain any information from the bank that specifies your password or PIN.
  • Be very careful when you accept offers like caller tunes or download attachments from unknown sources.
  • Do not use bluetooth devices in public places, as your confidential information may be compromised.
  • Be cautious when you browse through unfamiliar websites.

HDFC’s Missed Call Mobile Recharge

In March 2016, HDFC Bank launched a service to help customers recharge their prepaid mobile number through a missed call. To activate the service, the HDFC account holder should send the following SMS from the mobile number registered with the bank:

ACT <Name of service provider> <last 5 digits of the HDFC account number>

The SMS should be sent to 73 08 08 08 08.

The default amount set for mobile recharges is set at Rs.50. The customer can also set a specific amount to be recharged. The amount should range between Rs.50 to Rs.250. To change the default recharge amount the customer should send the following SMS:

<FAV> <Recharge amount>

Additionally, customers can add up to 4 mobile numbers under this service. To add a new phone number to the service, the following SMS should be sent to the number mentioned above:

<ACT> <mobile number> <Name of the service provider> < last 5 digits of the HDFC account number>

Once the service has been activated, the customer can give a missed call to the same number. The amount recharged is deducted from the customer’s bank account.
