Closing HDFC Bank Account with Negative Balance
The procedure for closing HDFC Bank Account remains the same as explained above. The only difference is that if you have a Negative Balance in your bank account, the bank will try to collect the negative balance amount from you before closing the account. You need not worry. As per the RBI guidelines, the customer is not required to pay any amount below the zero balance, i.e. any negative balance, to the bank at the closing the account. So, if the bank asks for any money from you, you should refuse to make any payment. If the bank insists, you have to be firm and tell them that they do not close the account now, the account will become dormant in two years and finally, the bank will be forced to close the bank account.

Once the bank agrees to close the account without making any payment of negative balance, you have to follow the account closing procedure as explained earlier.
