Most common Asked Question (FAQ)
How does your New Credit Card Work?
The Credit Card will have a fixed monthly fee that will be charged to the cardholder for being able to utilize its features and benefits. Every credit card has a fixed monthly fee, and customers are required to pay them on monthly basis. However, the Bank holds the right to waive the monthly fees fully or partially as it sees appropriate.
