Credit card is a proficient way to borrow money from the bank to make small or big-ticket purchases.
Talking about SBI credit cards, they are designed to suit the user’s requirements, whether small or big. But when you borrow money from the bank, you will have to pay it back, usually every month if
the amount is big enough to be broken into EMIs.
If the amount is not paid even on EMIs let alone the whole, there are usually finance rates applied to the outstanding amount. These finance or interest rates can be different from one another depending on the type of card you are using. When you borrow funds, you are given a grace period on which you can make the payment without any additional charges to it. There are other options as well such as no-interest EMIs.
The interest rates are only applied to the balance when you do not make your payments on time. For example, you borrowed Rs. 30,000 from the bank and you turned it into an EMI plan for 6 months which becomes Rs. 5,000 per month. Now your monthly due is Rs. 5,000 per month so you will have to make the minimum payment of Rs. 5,000 to keep your balance updated. In any case, if you miss the payment, the amount will be forwarded to next month which will make the total due Rs. 10,000 along with interest rates. But if you pay the entire Rs. 10,000 within the next due date, there will be
no interest rates charged.
