    including unpaid EMI installments from the date of transaction in the event of the Cardholder choosing not to pay his balance in full, and on all cash advances taken by the Cardholder, till they are paid back.

    If the Cardholder makes partial or no payment of Total amount due(TAD) before Payment due date(PDD); i.e. the Customer has outstanding balance from previous months and in the current month, full payment of Total amount due is made before Payment due date then Finance charges will be levied on the closing balance till the payment date.

    The current rate of finance charges is upto 3.50% per month [42% per annum] from the transaction date and is subject to change at the discretion of SBI Cards & Payment Services Limited (SBICPSL).

    a. Finance charges on cash advances are applicable from the date of transaction until the payment is made in full.

    Example 1 - Card Statement date - 15th of every month.

    Transaction done between 16th June’19 – 15th July’19

    1. Retail Purchase of Rs. 5000 – On 20th June’19

    2. Cash Withdrawal of Rs. 7000 – On 10th July’19

    Assuming No Previous Balance carried forward from the 15th June 2019 statement, the cardholder will get his 15thJuly statement showing Rs.12,000 of transactions along with 5 days of finance charges at the rate applicable on the Rs.7,000 cash withdrawal. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 5th August 2019, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due. Please note that any payment made against your Credit card outstanding, would first be cleared against your Minimum Amount Due (which is inclusive of all applicable taxes, EMI on Loan plans+5% of Total outstanding), fees and other charges (if any)followed by Balance Transfer balance (if any), retail balance (if any) and would be adjusted against your Cash Balance (if any) last. Finance charges will be levied from the previous statement date unless in the case of non-interest levied outstanding retail balance, where the finance charge is levied from the date of the transaction. In case the statement outstanding has no cash balance and has not been carried forward from a previous statement and the retail balance outstanding on the statement date is paid in full by the payment due date, No Finance Charges are levied on such balances.

    Example 2 – Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.

    Transaction done between 3rd Jan’19 – 2nd Feb’19

    1. Retail Purchase of Rs. 10000 – On 5th Jan’19

    2. Online Purchase of Rs. 30000 – On 15th Jan’19

    Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd Jan 2019 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd Feb statement showing Rs. 40,000 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd Feb 2019, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or the Minimum Amount Due. In case the statement outstanding has no cash balance and has not been carried forward from a previous statement and the retail balance outstanding on the statement date is paid in full by the payment due date, No Finance Charges are levied on such balances. Making only the minimum payment every month would result in the repayment stretching over the years with consequent interest payment on your outstanding balance.

    For e.g. on a transaction of Rs. 5,000 if Minimum Amount Due is paid every month (subject to a minimum amount of Rs. 200 every month), it will take up to 44 months for entire outstanding amount to be paid in full.

    Example 3 – Card Statement date – 2nd of every month

    Transaction done between 3rd March ’19 – 2nd April ’19

    (1) Annual Fee of Rs. 500 – On 5th March ’19

    (2) Applicable taxes of Rs. 90 – On 5th March ’19

    (3) Online Purchase of Rs. 6000 – On 15th March ’19

    Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd March 2019 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd April statement showing Rs. 6,590 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd April 2019, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due. Assuming the cardholder makes the payment of Minimum Amount Due of Rs. 415, (5% of Total outstanding) + applicable taxes on 22nd April 2019, rounded off to nearest decimal point, finance charges would be levied at the effective rate and added to the total outstanding. Considering the effective rate of 3.50% p.m., finance charge calculation will be done as follows:

    On the balance of Rs. 500 (5th March to 22nd April) for 49 days: (3.50*12)*(49/365)*500/100= Rs. 28.19

    On the applicable taxes of Rs. 90 (5th March to 22nd April) for 49 days: (3.50*12)*(49/365)*90/100= Rs.5.07

    On the balance of Rs. 6000 (15th March to 22nd April) for 39 days: (3.50*12)*(39/365)*6000/100= Rs. 269.26

    On the balance of Rs. 6,175 (22nd April to 2nd May) for 10 days: (3.50*12)*(10/365)*6175/100= Rs. 71.05

    Total Interest charged = Rs. 373.57

    Sum of Outstanding purchase amount, Interest charges, Fees and Charges, if any, and applicable taxes would reflect as the Total amount due in the statement dated 2nd May assuming the card holder does not make any transactions between 3rd April ‘19 – 2nd May ‘19.

    If the cardholder keeps making the Minimum Amount Due (5%) payment every month and also keep paying the interest amount he would clear the outstanding in 20 months (100%/ 5% = 20).

    If the Cardholder makes partial or no payment of Total amount due(TAD) before Payment due date(PDD); i.e. the Customer has outstanding balance from previous months and in the current month, full payment of Total amount due is made before Payment due date then Finance charges will be levied on the closing balance till the payment date.

    Example 4:

    Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.

    Transactions done between 3rd Dec’18 – 2nd Jan’19

    1) Retail Purchase of Rs. 500 – On 15th Dec’18

    2) Online Purchase of Rs. 600 – On 20th Dec’18

    Assuming the cardholder makes partial payment of of Rs. 500, on 22nd- Jan 2019, finance charges would be levied at the effective rate and added to the total outstanding. Considering the effective rate of 3.50% p.m., finance charge calculation will be done as follows

    On the balance of Rs. 500 (15th Dec to 22ndJan) for 39 days: (3.50*12) * (39/365) *500/100 = Rs. 22.43

    On the balance of Rs. 600 (20th Dec to 22nd Jan) for 34 days: (3.50*12) * (34/365) *600/100 = Rs. 23.47

    On the balance of Rs 600(22nd Jan to 2nd Feb) for 10 days (3.50*12) * (10/365) *600/100 = Rs. 6.90

    Total Interest Charged = Rs. 52.80

    Transactions done between 3rdFeb’19 – 2ndMar’19

    1) Beginning balance of Rs. 652.80 – On 3rd Feb’19

    2) Retail Purchase of Rs. 1000 – On 5th Feb’19

    3) Online Purchase of Rs. 3000 – On 15th Feb’19

    Assuming previous balance of Rs. 652.80 carried forward from the 2ndFeb 2019 statement, the cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd Feb 2019, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due.

    Assuming Cardholder makes complete payment by 15th Feb i.e. within Payment due date. Considering the effective rate of 3.50% p.m., finance charge calculation will be done as follows:

    On the Balance of Rs. 652.80 (3rdFeb – 15thFeb) for 12 days: (3.50*12) *(12/365) * 652.80/100 = Rs. 9.01

    Total Interest Charged = Rs. 9.01

    Sum of Outstanding purchase amount, Interest charges, Fees and Charges, if any, and all applicable taxes would reflect as the Total 6 amount due in the statement dated 2nd March.

    G. Late Payment charges will be applicable if Minimum Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date.

    • NIL for Total Amount due from Rs.0-Rs.500;

      (1) Retail Purchase of Rs. 5000 – On 5th Jan’16

      (2) Online Purchase of Rs. 5000 – On 15th Jan’16

      Assuming no previous balance carried forward from the 2nd Jan 2016 statement, the cardholder will get his 2nd Feb statement showing Rs. 10,000 transactions. The cardholder needs to make payment against the outstanding by 22nd Feb 2016, i.e. 20 days from the Statement Date, for anything between the entire amount or Minimum Amount Due.

    k. Risk Based Finance Charges:

    Effective 01 June 2021, The Cardholder will be charged a revised interest rate of 3.65% per month (43.8% per annum) if the Minimum Amount Due is not paid by the due date twice in a 12-month period. This revised rate will be applicable for a period of 12 months before it is reviewed again. When the Minimum Amount Due or more is paid by the due date for at least 11 times in the next 12 months, the interest rate charged will be revised back to the original rate applicable. This change is valid only for unsecured retail cards except Shaurya SBI Card.

    Below illustrations will explain how the interest is calculated:

    Assume that the Minimum Amount Due has not been paid by the due date twice in last 12-month period. Hence, the interest rate will be revised from regular 3.50% p.m. (42% APR) to the interest rate in case of Default of 3.65% p.m. (43.8% APR). Previous dues are paid in full and there is no amount outstanding in the Card Account.

    Illustration 1:

    Statement Date: 1st May, 2022, Due Date: 21st May, 2022

    • Retail Purchase of Rs.5,000 on 20th April, 2022
    • Retail Purchase of Rs.10,000 on 25th April, 2022
    • On 1st May, the statement is generated with Total Amount Due (TAD) of Rs.15,000 and Minimum Amount Due (MAD) of Rs. 750
    • Payment Due Date is on 21st May 2022
    • Retail Purchase of Rs. 2,000 on 29th May 2022

    Considering the effective rate of 3.65% p.m., finance charge calculation for 1st June 2022 statement will be done as follows:

    • On Retail Purchase of Rs.5,000 for 12 days (20th April to 1st May): (3.65*12)*(12/365)*5000/100 = Rs.72
    • On Retail Purchase of Rs.10,000 for 7 days (25th April to 1st May): (3.65*12)*(7/365)*10000/100 = Rs.84
    • On Total Amount Due of Rs.15,000 for 31 days (2nd May to 1st June): (3.65*12)*(31/365)*15000/100 = Rs.558
    • On Retail Purchase of Rs. 2,000 for 4 days (29th May to 1st June): (3.65*12)*(4/365)*2000/100 = Rs.9.6

    Thus the total interest charged on 1st June 2022 will be Rs. 723.60 plus applicable taxes (Late Payment charges will also be applicable here).

    Illustration 2:

    Statement Date: 2nd March, 2022, Due Date: 22nd March, 2022

    Card Statement date – 2nd of every month.

    Transaction done between 3rd March 2022 – 2nd April 2022

    • Annual fee of Rs. 500 on 5th March 2022
    • Applicable taxes of Rs. 90 on 5th March 2022
    • Online Purchase of Rs. 6000 on 15th March 2022
    • On 2nd April, the statement is generated with Total Amount Due (TAD) of Rs.6,950 and Minimum Amount Due (MAD) of Rs. 415
    • Payment Due Date is on 22nd April 2022

    Assuming the cardholder makes the payment of Minimum Amount Due of Rs. 415, on 22nd April 2022, rounded off to nearest decimal point, finance charges would be levied at the effective rate and added to the total outstanding.

    Considering the effective rate of 3.65% p.m., finance charge calculation for 2nd May 2022 statement will be done as follows:

    • On the balance of Rs. 500 (5th March to 22nd April) for 49 days: (3.65*12)*(49/365)*500/100= Rs. 29.4
    • On the applicable taxes of Rs. 90 (5th March to 22nd April) for 49 days: (3.65*12)*(49/365)*90/100= Rs.5.29
    • On the balance of Rs. 6000 (15th March to 22nd April) for 39 days: (3.65*12)*(39/365)*6000/100= Rs. 280.8
    • On the balance of Rs. 6,175 (22nd April to 2nd May) for 10 days: (3.65*12)*(10/365)*6175/100= Rs. 74.1

    Thus the total interest charged on 2nd May 2022 will be Rs. 389.59 plus applicable taxes (Late Payment charges will also be applicable here).

    Sum of Outstanding purchase amount, Interest charges, Fees and Charges, if any, and applicable taxes would reflect as the Total amount due in the statement dated 2nd May assuming the card holder does not make any transactions between 3rd April 2022 – 2nd May 2022.

    If the cardholder keeps making the Minimum Amount Due (5%) payment every month and also keep paying the interest amount he would clear the outstanding in 20 months (100%/5% = 20).

    Assuming that the cardholder clears the MAD payment within the due date 11 times in the 12 months post interest rate revision, the interest rate will revert to the original rate of 3.5% per month (42% per annum). For illustrations of calculation at this rate, please refer to Section F (‘Finance Charges’) of the Most Important Terms & Conditions

    Assuming that the cardholder misses the MAD payment more than once in the next 12 months post APR revision, the interest rate will continue to remain at 3.65% per month (43.8% per annum) for another 12 months.
