Applying for a credit card is almost always a very simple process. All you have to do is visit the card issuer’s website and select the card you wish to apply for and proceed with the application process. You are required to fill a simple form and submit a few KYC documents including an ID proof like Aadhar Card, Voter Card, PAN Card, etc., an address proof like Aadhar Card, Voter Card, driving license, electricity/telephone bill, etc. and proof of income like salary slip or ITR acknowledgment. But, unless your credit card is pre-approved, you do not get the card instantly right after submitting the application. Once you have submitted the application, it undergoes scrutiny by the bank officials who first evaluate your eligibility for the card, and then, if deemed eligible, decide the credit limit of your credit card.

Possible Statuses of Your Credit Card Application

Once you have submitted your credit card application, the status of your application keeps changing based on its progress. For example, upon checking the status of your application, you may find that it is still under review or has been approved/disapproved.

For most credit card issuers, your application will have one of the following statuses at any given time-

  • No Records Found: This is the message that you see if you enter wrong details like the wrong reference number, PAN or mobile number while checking your application status. This indicates that there are no records matching the details entered by you in the bank’s database.
  • On Hold: This status indicates that you have either not provided all the documents necessary to process your application or the card issuer was unable to verify your documents. In such a case, the card issuer might ask you to submit some additional documents (if required) or furnish the already submitted documents afresh with correct details.
  • In Progress: This status indicates that the card issuer is yet to decide on your application- it has been neither approved nor disapproved.
  • Approved: This status means that your credit card application has been successfully processed and has been approved and your credit card will be dispatched shortly at your correspondence address.
  • Disapproved: This status indicates that your credit card application has been rejected by the issuer. There can be many reasons for rejection of application including incomplete documents, mismatch of information provided by you and that on the KYC documents, but the most common reason for application rejection/disapproval is not meeting the eligibility criteria.
  • Dispatched: This is the status of your credit card application after it has been approved and the card has been successfully dispatched to your address.
