    • 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.

  36. Hi Team,

    Where can i see the transfer history in the Internet banking site??

    • 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.

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.
