"HDFC Bank customers who are registered for SMS Banking can activate this service by sending an SMS and will be activated for missed call recharge for a default amount, say Rs 50. If a customer wishes to set any favourite amount (other than Rs 50), it can be done by sending an SMS," he said.

While, the payments bank licencee Paytm has claimed a customer base of 10 crore. A large chunk of this uses the digital wallet for recharging mobile phones and DTH services. Although HDFC Bank's missed call service is restricted to its customer base, it is a sizeable number going by the bank's 2.41 crore debit card base.

Chugh pointed out that the missed call service is ideal for 750 million feature phones which constitute 75% of handsets in India. Over 85% of mobile connections are prepaid and recharges are for values as low as Rs 10.
