I recommended to my client to leave your default home page as : http://www.example.com but currently this is redirected to https://www.example.com/login.asp.
This is the what my client says:
The default page for the site is Login.asp.
The redirect is to ensure that all users access the site over SSL. When you go to http://www.example.com, you are redirected to https://www.example.com/login.asp. I’m not sure I understand why this is an issue. BTW – the redirect occurs as follows: Index.html redirects to default.html which redirects to https://www.example.com/login.asp. This set up ensures that people who simply type http://www.example.com will be redirected to https://www.example.com and communicate with us over a secure channel.
Now I need your suggestions regarding this situation what should I do:
Will it make any SEO difference if my home is like that.

Nice to see you here also.
I am not sure what is the reason behind this. But, I guess your client wants people to see that they are using a SSL site, which can create a bit of trust.
If both the redirects are Permanent 301, just go on with the client. No matter what happens, Client is always right :-) After the Landing Page Algorithm update by Google, permanent redirects can redirect all the SEO/SEM benefits to the landed page. But, if any one of the redirects are temporary, then it will harm your SEO/SEM effort, PageRank, Link Popularity, etc.
