Sir/Madam,
            I tried to close the FD and pay my dues from 2018 onwards but the bank officials wanted to increase my interest and steal my total FD amount 50K for 30K. I wanted to liquidate my FD account Fixed deposit bearing no 50300209548104 linked with
Saving Bank Account No 50100160228046 to pay this emi amount of all my credit card bills but hdfc bank is not cooperating with me for the same. HDFC Bank International Credit Card 489377XXXXXX8531.
