HDFC Bank informed its customers on Twitter about the technical glitch around 1:00 PM.

The social media post read: “Some customers are facing intermittent issues accessing our NetBanking/MobileBanking App. We are looking into it on priority for resolution. We apologize for the inconvenience and request you to try again after some time. Thank you."

Using a similar play of words, another user tweeted:

Another one posted:

One user also suggested that the bank should hire some good IT professionals from rivals.

Some users were unhappy as they were in the middle of financial year-end-related transactions when the outage happened.
