Hi Guys,

I was checking bank statement today and found that hdfc has deducted 590 Annual Debit Card charges on Jan 17. This the first time this charge has been deducted since 2005 that I have had this account. This is a regular saving account with 10k min balance. The debit card is blue Easy Shop.

Any way to reverse this charge or reduce this fee? 590 is a lot of money

It must be getting deducted earlier also. Reversal not possible. 500 plus GST is minimum for any Visa/MC HDFC DC if you have regular savings account. Get Rupay DC if you want lower charges.

It has never been deducted before. I’m 100% sure about this.

Just finished speaking with phone banking. The guy took a reversal request of 590 but wasn’t sure how much would be reversed as backend team decides it, will take 7-8 days.
Let’s see…

25k is a lot. Would want to reduce even 10k if possible

Just told them I have never been charged this since beginning. Why did they charge all of a sudden without even intimation this time?

The rep himself offered to reverse, I didn’t even have to ask for that.
I think they get a lot of such requests that’s why he offered it upfront…

This is free money for them, if someone calls then reverse otherwise enjoy free money

I have this card for more than a year now. You won’t get any cashback points for payment on cred. Although you will get 0.5% back for adding money to paytm payments bank using this card.

I have tried but the cashback is credited after 90 days of transaction. So i have not received the cb yet.

I am not sure but debit card is must to setup/change upi pin. Maybe some banks allow upi on disabled debit card accounts but not sure. @abhishek012 may know more. NEFT/IMPS/RTGS are independent of debit card.

I called 011-61606161 for Delhi. Number is different for different cities I think. It is usually written at the back of card or search on Google
