    E. Interest Free Grace Period

    The interest free credit period could range from 20 to 50 days subject to submission of claims by the merchant. However, this is not applicable if the previous month’s balance has not been cleared in full or if the Cardholder has availed of cash from any ATM / Cash Point

    F. Finance Charges (Service Charges)

    Finance Charges are payable at the monthly percentage rate on all transactions from the date of transaction in the event of the Cardholder choosing not to pay his balance in full, and on all cash advances taken by the Cardholder, till they are paid back. Card Interest Rate is dynamic and will be based on the Cardholder’s usage and payment patterns and is subject to periodic review. The rate of finance charges may increase to a maximum of 3.35% per month [40.2% per annum] from the transaction date. Finance charges, if payable, are subject to levy of Service Taxes and are debited to the Cardholder’s account till the outstanding on the card is paid in full.
    a. Finance charges on cash advances are applicable from the date of transaction until the payment is made in full.

    Example 1 - Card Statement date – 15th of every month.
    Transaction done between 16th June’15 – 15th July’15
    1. Retail Purchase of Inr 5000 – On 20th June’15
    2. Cash Withdrawal of Inr 7000 – On 10th July’15
    Assuming No Previous Balance carried forward from the 15th June 2015 statement, the cardholder will get his 15th  July statement showing Rs. 12,000 of transactions along with 5 days of finance charges at the rate applicable on the Rs.7,000 cash withdrawal. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 5th August 2015, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minumum Amount Due. Please note that any payment made against your Credit card outstanding, would first be cleared against your EMI Balance (if any) followed by Balance Transfer balance (if any), retail balance (if any) and would be adjusted against your Cash Balance (if any) last. Finance charges will be levied from the previous statement date unless in the case of non-interest levied outstanding retail balance, where the finance charge is levied from the date of the transaction.
    In case the statement outstanding has no cash balance and has not been carried forward from a previous statement and the retail balance outstanding on the statement date is paid in full by the payment due date, No Finance Charges are levied on such balances.

    Example 2 – Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.
    Transaction done between 3rd Jan’15 – 2nd Feb’15
    1. Retail Purchase of Inr 10000 – On 5th Jan’15
    2. Online Purchase of Inr 30000 – On 15th Jan’15
    Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd Jan 2015 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd Feb statement showing Rs. 40,000 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd Feb 2015, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minumum Amount Due. Please note that any payment made against your Credit card outstanding, would first be cleared against your EMI Balance (if any) followed by Balance Transfer balance (if any), retail balance (if any) and would be adjusted against your Cash Balance (if any) last. Finance charges will be levied from the previous statement date unless in the case of non-interest levied outstanding retail balance, where the finance charge is levied from the date of the transaction.
    In case the statement outstanding has no cash balance and has not been carried forward from a previous statement and the retail balance outstanding on the statement date is paid in full by the payment due date, No Finance Charges are levied on such balances.

    Making only the minimum payment every month would result in the repayment stretching over the years with consequent interest payment on your outstanding balance.

    For e.g. on a transaction of Inr 5,000 if Minimum Amount Due is paid every month (subject to a minimum amount of Inr 200 every month), it will take up to 44 months for entire outstanding amount to be paid in full.

    Example 3 – Card Statement date – 2nd of every month
    Transaction done between 3rd March ’15 – 2nd April ’15
    (1) Retail Purchase of Inr 5000 – On 5th March ’15  (2) Online Purchase of Inr 6000 – On 15th March ’15
    Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd March 2015 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd April statement showing Rs. 11,000 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd April 2015, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due.
    Assuming the cardholder makes the payment of Minimum Amount Due of Inr 500, (5% of Total outstanding) on 22nd April 2015, finance charges would be levied at the effective rate and added to the total outstanding. Considering the effective rate of 3.35% p.m., finance charge calculation will be done as follows:
    On the balance of Rs. 5000 (5th March to 22nd April) for 49 days: (3.35*12)*(49/365)*5000/100= Inr 269.83
    On the balance of Rs. 6000 (15th March to 22nd April) for 39 days: (3.35*12)*(39/365)*6000/100= Inr 257.72
    On the balance of Rs. 10500 (22nd April to 2nd May) for 10 days: (3.35*12)*(10/365)*10500/100= Inr 115.64
    Total Interest charged = Inr 643.19
    Sum of Outstanding purchase amount, Interst charges, Fees and Charges, if any  and all applicable taxes would reflect as the Total amount due in the statement dated 2nd May assuming the card holder does not make any transactions between 3rd April ’15 – 2nd May ’15

    If the cardholder keeps making the Minimum Amount Due (5%) payment every month and also consequently paying the interest amount he would clear the outstanding in 20 months (100%/ 5% – 20).

    G. Late Payment charges will be applicable if Minimum Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date.
    NIL for Total Amount due from Rs.0-Rs.200
    Rs.100 for Total Amount due greater than Rs.200 & up to Rs.500
    Rs.200 for Total Amount due greater than Rs.500 & up to Rs.1000
    Rs.500 for Total Amount due greater than Rs.1000 & up to Rs.10,000
    Rs.750 for Total Amount due greater than Rs.10,000
    Example 1 -
    Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.
    Transaction done between 3rd Jan’15 – 2nd Feb’15
    (1) Retail Purchase of Inr 5000 – On 5th Jan’15
    (2) Online Purchase of Inr 5000 – On 15th Jan’15
    Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd Jan 2015 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd Feb statement showing Rs. 10,000 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd Feb 2015, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due.
    If the cardholder does not make any payment by 22nd Feb 2015, he would be charged a Late Payment Charge of Rs. 500 (Rs. 500 for Total Amount Due from Rs. 1,000 - Rs. 10, 000).

    Example 2 -
    Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.
    Transaction done between 3rd Feb’15 – 2nd Mar’15
    1. Retail Purchase of Inr 2000 – On 8th Feb’15
    2. Online Purchase of Inr 2500 – On 19th Feb’15

The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd March 2015, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due.
    If the cardholder does not make any payment by 22nd March 2015, he would be charged a Late Payment Charge of Rs. 500 (Rs. 500 for Total Amount Due from Rs. 1,001 - Rs. 10,000).

    H. Overlimit charges - As a service gesture SBI Card may approve certain transactions attempted by the cardholder which are over and above the credit limit, Please note that if the outstanding amount exceeds the credit limit, an over-limit fee of 2.5 % of the over-limit amount or Rs 500, whichever is higher will be levied.
