Controversies[edit]

Money laundering allegations
On 14 March 2013 an online magazine named Cobrapost.com released video footage from Operation Red Spider showing high-ranking officials and some employees of HDFC bank and two other leading banks, willing to turn black money into white, a violation of Money Laundering Control Act.

Following the release of the footage, the Government of India and RBI ordered an inquiry.[97][98][99] The banks under question also conducted investigations of their own. HDFC appointed Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu to conduct a forensic inquiry. The bank also appointed Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A Shroff & Co (AMSS), a law firm based in India, to investigate in association with the internal departmental inquiry, the breaches in the bank’s code of conduct and ethical standards by the officials involved.[100] On 16 March 2013, HDFC released a statement announcing the suspension of over 20 employees involved in the videotape to ensure fair and unbiased investigation process.[101][102]

The RBI forensic investigation did not reveal any prima facie evidence for the allegations of money laundering. Deputy Governor at RBI, K.C. Chakrabarty, said in an interview that no transactions had taken place.[103] The Executive Director of HDFC, Paresh Sukthankar, also confirmed that their investigations revealed the same on 24 April 2013, "The issue is being reviewed and investigated from multiple quarters. Clearly, all the investigations have shown that there have been no instances of transactions actually taking place. Our belief is that the existing processes seem to have worked in not allowing these transactions to happen."[102]

However, RBI investigations revealed violations of KYC (Know Your Customer) norms, for which the three banks were imposed penalty, with Rs. 4.5 crores imposed on HDFC.[104]
