HDFC Deducts Money From My Account Automatically(AMB CHRG INCL ST & CESS )

Update: Today (24/02/15) one HDFC representative contacted me after reading this complaint and explained to me the circumstances under which they levied AMB penalty. She explained me, HDFC had sent me a post about the change of account status from salary A/C to normal savings A/C but the postal address listed in the bank details pointed to my old office. Unfortunately, they changed the office in the meantime and couldn't deliver the post. She also informed me HDFC doesn't intimate customers about account change via SMS but only through the post. For those who are managing multiple bank accounts may don't recognize the white collar theft by banks in the form of hidden charges and penalties. I have been facing such a situation for the past few months, but yesterday I found it. I have one HDFC account which was started as a salary account and then transformed into an ordinary savings account later. They told me it's a salary account and the minimum balance can be 0

Started Using Microsoft Office 365 From GoDaddy

I had been using GoDaddy webmail service for my domain based email server until yesterday. If any of my readers send me a message at, I would receive it on GoDaddy webmail. Today noon, I have migrated my webmail server from regular Godaddy webmail to Microsoft Office 365. The migration was not much stressful as I thought.

WAMP Server Is Offline Due to Internal Error

After a long while, I have decided to check some personal web projects I did during my college days. Most of them were done in PHP and My SQL. To test them I need to open them either in the local server (WAMP server I am using) or upload the entire files to a web server. Since it takes more time to upload entire project (it includes a lot of images too) to my web hosting account, I decided to check them on Local Host. Though everything looked fine, WAMP server showed offline. Its icon in system tray showed in red color as you can see in the image below. I opened the program by clicking on it and tried to put it online by clicking "Put Online'. This operation failed and I got an error messages " Could not execute menu item (internal error) [Exception] could not perform service action; The service has not been started " with an OK button. So the reason for this problem is revealed. Some of the essential services needed to start this application are disabled
