According to 'Downdetector', the issues surged around 10.45 a.m. and people are still facing problems.

This is yet another glitch after customers faced issues in net banking and mobile app in March.

In November last year, a major outage occurred in the bank's internet banking and payment system due to a power failure in the primary data centre, following which the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in December asked the bank to temporarily stop all launches of the digital business generating activities and sourcing of new credit card customers.

In February, the RBI appointed an external professional IT firm to carry out a special audit of the entire IT infrastructure of HDFC Bank following the outage.
