Reloading HDFC Forex card using another person’s credit card

It will not work. You can reload your HDFC bank forex card online using a debit or credit card which is only in your name.

I tried loading 500 Qatari Riyal to a VISA Platinum ForexPlus Multi Currency Corporate Debit Card which is in my name by using my wife’s HDFC Regalia credit card. The amount was immediately taken away from wife’s credit card & was shown as a transaction item in the credit card account, but it did not show up in my forex card account.

Then on the 6th day the amount was reversed back to the credit card as the card holders were different, and we got SMS messages regarding the transaction failure.
