Frequently Asked Questions
A fixed deposit (FD) acts as collateral for a secured credit card, as the bank puts a lien on the FD until the customer returns the credit card. If the customer defaults on the credit card payments, the bank can use the FD to cover the outstanding balance.
A credit card against FD is an excellent choice for those struggling to obtain a credit card due to low credit scores, irregular income sources, or unsatisfactory ID proof(s). It helps build credit scores and provides access to emergency funds.
Not every secured credit cardholder gets upgraded to an unsecured card. The reason may be a low/average income or any other factor. However, increasing the FD amount in the bank can lead to an increase in the credit limit.
No, it is not possible to deposit money using a debit card, credit card, or wallet. These forms of payment are meant for purchases and transactions rather than for depositing funds. However, other options are available for depositing money, such as bank transfers or cash deposits.
No, taking a fixed deposit will not directly impact your CIBIL score. However, by taking a secured credit card against an existing FD and making timely bill payments, you can improve your CIBIL score through your repayment history.
Yes, ATMs usually allow you to withdraw 100% of your credit limit. However, the card's credit limit will only be 75-90% of your fixed deposit.
Banks usually offer a credit limit equal to about 75-90% of the amount you have in a fixed deposit. So, if you've got a ₹10,000 fixed deposit, you can expect a credit limit ranging from ₹7,500 to ₹9,000. Remember that the precise credit limit may differ depending on the bank's guidelines and your credit history.
Regrettably, credit cards backed by fixed deposits are not accessible to foreign nationals in India. This service is exclusively offered to Indian citizens and residents.
The minimum amount of fixed deposit for a credit card varies by bank. Typically, it ranges from Rs.2,000 to Rs.25,000.
Many Indian banks, such as Kotak Mahindra Bank, offer credit cards against fixed deposits for enhanced financial flexibility.
Disadvantages of secured credit cards include lower credit limits (typically 75-90% of the FD amount) and the requirement to maintain a fixed deposit with the issuing bank.
