You need to reactivate your HDFC bank receipt a minimum of 2 working days after your scheduled interview appointment date. Visit any of VFS application centre along with your passport and valid original HDFC bank fee receipt.

    Pay service charge to be paid at VFS application centre ONLY, in cash or via demand draft in favour of ‘HDFC bank a/c VFS’. Note: This fee is not to be paid at HDFC bank.

      Usually you use it at an ATM other than a bank ATM, such as one found in a grocery store or cnnnevieoce store. Keep in mind that they are high-interest loans.I tried to use mine at a bank ATM and the teller looked at me like I was stupid, since it wasn't a debit card You can do it at any other ATMs, though.
