You can easily do it with mobile banking and netbanking or If facing any problem visit nearby branch you can also go through customer care they have also option to do it

I am an HDFC preferred customer of last four years. I have seen that this was converted from my savings max account after few months of making an fd of 20 lakhs. HDFC tells that the bank internally reviews customers each 6 months but even after withdrawal of my fd they haven’t changed my account from preferred since last two years. It may be a catch

Yes, just maintain required balance and/or fixed deposits. Then you will receive upgrade message and email, or you can upgrade it through branch.

Thanks for this insight
How much time has it been since you withdrew that FD?

Have been regularly maintaining the required balance since last 8-9 months, but still haven't received any call/ mail from anyone

Branch employees are also not that helpful and HDFC's Customer Service is too painful to deal with

How can it be done via Mobile Banking or NetBanking? I couldn't find that option anywhere
