HDFC Bank hopes to return with a 'bang' and regain lost market share

In the last week, HDFC Bank said it expects to regain the lost market share and make a strong comeback once the regulator lifts the embargo on issuing new credit cards.

Parag Rao head of consumer finance, digital banking, and information technology said,

The bank has been in constant discussion with RBI ever since the ban was imposed, and has upgraded its systems as per the indications from the regulator, Rao said.

He added that it had now presented a plan that focuses on the immediate, short-term, mid-term and long-term to the central bank.
