    amb = average monthly balance.

    account holders need to maintain a minimum amb or pay charges.

    I think HDFC needs Rs 10,000 to be maintained as a minimum balance. Is that your account goes less than 10,000 INR ?

    AMB (average monthly balance) is the monthly average of closing balance of every day. It means you do not actually have to maintain 10,000 everyday but the average of all days of the month should be 10,000

    Your AMB will be 300,000 divided by the number of days in the month

    Hello everyone... On feb 2014 Rs 4600 has been deducted from my account by HDFC... I spoke hdfc customer care/HDFC banking ombudsman/hdfc branch manager (adambakkam - chennai ) on this issue.. They refused to refund the deducted money and they asked me to close this account and open a fresh salary account to avoid further AMB charges.HDFC Branch manager of adambakkam ( a lady) said that we cannot refund the deducted money , you can go and complaint to wherever/whoever u want. There is no chance of refund.


    Finally i reached honorable RBI BANKING OMBUDSMAN () and filed a complaint against HDFC... RBI slapped HDFC and The entire amount has been reversed to my account ... I request you all to complaint about this white collar thieves (HDFC BANK) to RBI....

    Escalation Matrix I followed:


    1.HDFC customer care

    2.My account Branch Manager

    3.Nodal officer Chennai - [mailto:]

    4.HDFC Banking ombudsman


    Nothing worked..


    Finally reached RBI BANKING OMBUDSMAN ( ) and amount has been reversed to my account.



    Legal route

    If you are not happy with the settlement offered by the ombudsman, you can file an appeal before the appellate authority within 30 days. The appellate authority in this case is the deputy governor of the RBI. Alternatively, you can approach consumer redressal forums, which take up bank-related complaints, or even the courts.

    NEVER LOOSE YOUR HARDLY EARNED MONEY TO THIS WHITE COLLAR THIEVES

    HDFC is the worst bank i have ever used. I am using icici and axis now both are good. But In icici they charge some fees for 3rd party cash deposit which sucks..
    Better use banks like IDBI or ING vyasa

    with Interest rates going down, many of Banks are cutting costs and there customer services are getting degraded.
