The latest glitch comes at a time when the lender’s IT infrastructure is already under the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) audit after a series of technical problems reported.
HDFC Bank is expected to get back to the banking regulator on how it has addressed recurrent issues on its digital banking platform.

In February, RBI appointed an external firm to conduct a special audit of its entire information technology (IT) infrastructure.
In December 2020, the RBI had barred HDFC Bank from new digital launches and issuance of fresh credit cards until it addressed its digital issues.
The RBI had also asked the bank’s board to identify lapses and fix accountability. The RBI’s directive came after a prolonged outage of digital services following a power outage at the bank’s primary data centre.
