For my Indian member friends here who have an account with HDFCBank or are planning to get a new account there: As you know, HDFCBank had taken off the Netsafe section from its site for the past few days in name of up-gradation... well, today the site has removed the Netsafe entirely, and has this section in its place: Verified by Visa/ MasterCard SecureCode Does it means that we cannot have the earlier facility to create Netsafe VCC for international payments like before? How can we now pay for our domains and hosting which are offshore? How can we purchase those small items that were available to us before? While the ministers and "babus" can have accounts in foreign banks, Swiss banks especially, and can buy any overseas thing openly, can illegally transact millions of Dollars and Pounds to various overseas agents like there is no tomorrow for them, those same people are making the life of small-time internet-marketers' lives extremely difficult... Seems like its time to move on to another bank... bye bye, HDFC bank. Have you tried looking at that site today in this respect (Netsafe VCC)? Looks like the FM is getting a huge itch once again, and once too often. Thanks!
