Gift card is now a fashion. Usually people with gift card can purchase from any retail outlet and payment can be made through gift card.
If it is not working then inform the Card division of the Bank. more
It is great to see a member point out cheating the public in a sophisticated way. Let me tell you the T&C mentioned going to several pages and in smallest possible letters must have taken care of bank interest ! You can go to Ombundsman. But my experience is that it is only an eyewash. Any person is made as ombudsman and they do not reply ! So much of manipulation by HDFC bank which is one of the biggest bank and claims itself as reputed bank.
File a PIL if it is possible. I will extend my support. more
Yes, you should first ensure the purpose of issuing the card because no one will give anything to any one unless they are directly or indirectly benefited from him. After all HDFC Bank is a commercial institute and there must be some T&C for using the card. more
First you should get clarified from your employer about the purpose of the card. more
When such things happened, we had an option to approach Banking Ombudsman earlier. Now the office of Ombudsman is also working like a state service department, too tired to do the real work expected of them. Usually Ombudsman will be some retired banker or a person nearing his superannuation, who is interested in his monthly salary credits into his account, no matter he does the work entrusted or not. RBI by an amendment to the Ombudsman Act has taken away the rights of customers to approach appellate authority when one is not satisfied by the decision of ombudsman. I don't know whether the office of ombudsman will include in the list of offices where corruption is still alive as said by our PM in his independence day address. more
