HDFC Bank signs agreement with Lucknow Development Authority
HDFC Bank has recently signed an agreement with Lucknow development Authority (LDA) to enable payment gateway for the residents of Uttar Pradesh. The agreement will enable the residents of the state to transact online on the website of Lucknow Development Authority using HDFC Bank’s payment gateway.
Residents of the state can perform 5 transactions including applying for new schemes, purchase of forms, and payment of registration and map fee, in a quick and convenient manner, by any debit card, credit card, or netbanking facility, said the bank.
At present, residents have to visit the office of LDA to apply for new residential and commercial real-estate property schemes, purchase of forms of property registration, submission of map fee through cash or cheque, which can be a time-consuming process.
LDA said, “This first-of-its kind initiative in Lucknow will reduce the time spent commuting and queuing up to make payment. It will also allow people who have moved out of the city to make their payment in a timely manner from the comfort of their homes or offices.”
The initiative is part of India’s premier full-service digital bank’s strategic focus on customer convenience, access and delight, using technology as an enabler, said the bank.
HDFC Bank has 426 branches and 933 ATMs in the state of Uttar Pradesh. As of March 31, 2016, the Bank had a national distribution network 4,520 branches and 12,000 ATMs across 2,587 cities and towns.
