Actually i given a check of rs 10,000 to my friend but my friend misused to and given to some one with whom he had to pay same amount..And i couldn't maintain the same amount in my bank as it is my salary account,without to my notice that person went to bank and asked for my contact no.Hdfc bank provided my number along with the address. Is it correct?if it is any other cases it would be very tough for the users,how can they just provide the address with out our notice?

    Please add a country tag. Bank regulations and privacy laws differ by country. – JTP - Apologise to Monica Nov 13 '14 at 12:45

    Isn't your address on the check? – mhoran_psprep Nov 13 '14 at 14:01

    @mhoran_psprep: Address isn't always printed on checks, but it's common for folks to include it, since otherwise many vendors would ask you to add it by hand. – keshlam Nov 13 '14 at 16:23

You will have to consult your bank's privacy policy. The answer will be specific to the bank unless you are in a country (for example an EU country) with stricter privacy laws. (And even then, some banks may be stricter than the law requires while others may just meet the letter of the law.)

  • The rupee is the common name for the currencies of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives, Indonesia. OP may very well be from India, but s/he should tell us. – JTP - Apologise to Monica Nov 13 '14 at 21:52
  • The user also said it was HDFC back which operates only in Ind. so was my conclusion ;) – uday Nov 13 '14 at 22:30
