In an effort to provide its cardholders with innovative payment solutions, global payments solutions major MasterCard International and HDFC Bank have recently introduced the HDFC MasterCard debit card.
The launch of the new signature-based online debit card is in addition to the PIN-based Maestro debit card, currently being offered in India. With this launch, MasterCard will offer an extensive suite of debit products to its cardholders, in addition to the bank’s strategy to offer a wider portfolio of payment options, thereby catering to a larger customer base.

It is a pleasure to ally with MasterCard in fulfilling this objective”, says Neeraj Swaroop, Country Head, Retail Banking, HDFC Bank.
