On the sidelines of the launch of HDFC Bank's Go Digital campaign in Varanasi, the spiritual capital of India, the bank's Windows Phone app got a fine update as well, with more capabilities coming soon. The launch saw HDFC Bank announcing a technology agnostic Bank Aap Ki Muththi Mein (Bank in your hand) offering which aims to turn a mobile phone into a bank branch.

The official HDFC Bank app has been very efficient, and has garnered positive reviews and small updates every now and then, but a major refresh in the first week of December went awry. The update brought a set of new features allowing customers to use the app without logging in for contacting the bank for various services and support channels, sharing feedback, and locating nearby ATMs and bank branches.

Nadella met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, promising support for Modi's Digital India initiative to modernize that country's infrastructure.

No announcements of investments or projects were made, making this trip more of a 'courtesy visit' according to Nadella rather than anything substantive.
