You can check the status of added beneficiary by heading over to ‘Third Party Transfer’ tab and then clicking on ‘View list of Beneficiaries. The status of intended beneficiary must be shown as ‘Enabled’. If not so, then wait for it to get enabled.

2. Always provide meaningful ‘Transfer Description’. It will help you to keep track of your hard-earned money.

3. Take the printout of ‘Fund Transfer Initiated Page’ or take its screenshot at the very least.

4. After adding beneficiary and initiating the fund transfer, it takes around 3-4 hours or less/more for fund to appear in the recipient account. So be patient!

      Once payment sent, there are no any ways to stop or revert the money. Tell him to send back your money.

      Did you installed any new addon recently, disable it and try.

      • I’m having the same problem — on all browsers. After HDFC revamped their site, the third-party transfer isn’t available. Clicking “transfer within the bank,” for example, takes you to the help / main page. In fact, all the Funds Transfer links take you to a Help page. This happened around Jan 15, 2015.

    • Rajeesh Nair // Feb 4, 2015 at 8:16 pm // Reply

      Hi Latha,

      You can’t check the transfer status from your internet banking account but the fact is that the funds transfer is instant and the banks guarantee for successful transfer within 24 to 48 hours for NEFT transfers. You can check your transfer history through your account statement that you can generate from your internet banking account.

  32. can I transfer some money to china ?

    • Rajeesh Nair // Feb 4, 2015 at 9:16 pm // Reply

      Sorry Rahul,

      You can’t transfer money to China from your bank. You can use Western Union Money Transfer or PayPal for transferring funds from India to China. If you are an NRI then you can also use NRI banking services to transfer funds through banks.

  33. Thanks so much…..very useful and explained in very understandable manner for a layman.

      Don’t worry, Just contact your branch. Check money is transferred or not. If not, It will be refunded to your brother account.

  37. can anyone please let me know the direct link where I can log into the net banking and so that I can add a beneficiary accounts? I am trying so many times..but it is showing like this facility is not available currently.. it will be great if any one could help me with this..

    • Rajeesh Nair // Mar 1, 2015 at 1:25 pm // Reply

      Once you log in to your HDFC Internet Banking Account, you will see “Funds Transfer” on the top nav bar. Once you click that link, you will be redirected to the “Funds Transfer” page. Choose whichever is applicable based on the type of account you are transferring your funds to. (i.e. Within HDFC or other Banks)

      You can use both IMPS or NEFT transfer options for transferring funds to another bank account. When you select IMPS or NEFT, you will find a link “Add a Beneficiary” below the form. Click the link and you can add the beneficiary. You may not find the “Add a Beneficiary” link on “Transfer Within Bank” page. So choose, NEFT or IMPS funds transfer option to add a beneficiary.

      I hope this is helpful.
