Chennai, May 6: HDFC Bank today launched Fund Transfer on 'ngpay,' India's leading mobile commerce network. With this launch, HDFC Bank has become the first bank in India to offer, on one single platform, a full suite of banking and commerce services over the mobile, including accessing bank accounts, shopping, ticketing and payments, according to a release here.
With 'ngpay,' users could complete end-to-end transactions with their favourite merchants, banks and service providers through a simple, consolidated menu on their mobile.

Starting next month, HDFC Bank customers would also be able to buy and sell units of different HDFC Mutual Fund schemes through 'ngpay,' the release added.
