And you can try adding(not sure will this work or not but no harm in trying) this card to your Paypal account and pay through your PayPal..

^ U can’t make payment to indian merchants via Paypal.

I suggest you to use the HDFC Gift Plus card at the POS Terminals.. such as Big Bazaar, Central or for Petrol

Buy a Amex Prepaid Card if you want for buying online.

Some schemes were going on :

Seems like you weren’t aware of the t&c when you bought it.
Ask the cust care whether its possible to return it back and instead buy some other card from hdfc which can be used for online shopping.

If the card can only be accepted at POS terminals, then no use trying paypal

You could also try talking to a friend/relative who has a shop and accepts cards. He may charge your card and pay you cash.

You will lose money as even the shopkeeper will have to pay processing fees of about 2-5%.
Why not speak to HDFC and tell them to cancel their card and refund the money back to your account!

Thanks for response i think there is no service like cancelling card is available at HDFC
I am so frustrated and want to get money
Is there anyway to get money from patrol pumps terminals since patrol surcharge is also 2.5% percent https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif

Well i am sure .. you would be purchasing things offline too.
Ask your friend who wants to purchase anything to purchase it by your card instead of cash.

Try using the card offline or give it to your family to use it https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif
