If users try to log in via net banking, they get a message that reads, “Dear user, the NetBanking system is busy processing heavy load from currently logged in customers, request to try after some time.”
And if they go to the mobile app, the notification reads, “We are experiencing some heavy traffic, please try again after some time. Apologies for the inconvenience.”
Reports of the outage started coming in on Monday morning and peaked in the evening at around 5 pm, according to Downdetector — most of them from metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Surat.
As of Tuesday afternoon, HDFC’s services still aren’t functioning. The bank is yet to issue a deadline on when users can hope to see a resolution.
