Dear Sir / Madam,

Sub: Termination of Global Depository Receipts (“GDRs”) program of HDFC Bank Limited (“Bank”) and delisting of GDRs from the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (“LSE”)

We wish to inform you that, in view of the minimal number of GDRs outstanding and the low trading volume of the GDRs, the Board of Directors of the Bank (“ Board ”) has, in its meeting held on April 20, 2019, considered and approved the proposal for termination of the GDR program and delisting of 22 GDRs (representing 11 underlying equity shares of the Bank cumulatively), which are outstanding and listed on the LSE, subject to compliance with applicable laws.

The Bank shall take necessary steps in this regard.

This is for your information and record.

Yours faithfully,

For HDFC Bank Limited
