HDFC Bank is offering a higher credit limit and credit card upgrades to their credit cardholders. The bank is sending SMSes and emails to the cardholders intimating them about their eligibility for a higher credit limit/card upgrade. If a cardholder has not received any intimation from the bank regarding credit limit enhancement or card upgrade, they might still be eligible- they should check for the same by logging in to their HDFC internet banking account.

Bottom Line

Since recently, many card issuers have been providing a higher credit limit to their credit card customers. Earlier this month, ICICI was also offering a higher credit limit to its customers. While on one hand, a higher credit limit translates into an increased line of credit which means more liquid funds at your disposal, it also entices you to spend more- sometimes even beyond what you can afford- which is certainly not the best of things to do from your personal finance point of view.
