Over-limit status may also happen because of fees or interest charges.
**Charges in foreign currency: If a transaction is made in a currency other than Indian Rupees, that transaction will be converted into Indian Rupees. The conversion will take place on the date the transaction is settled with ICICI Bank, which may not be the same date on which the transaction was made. If the transaction is not in US Dollars, the conversion will be made through US Dollars, by converting the charged amount into US Dollars and then by converting the US Dollar amount into Indian Rupees.
Unless a specific rate is required by applicable law, the conversion rate from US Dollar to Indian Rupees will be at the rates provided by VISA, as the case may be, on the settlement date, increased by a Currency Conversion Factor assessment (currently 3.50%) on such transactions.
#In addition Rs 50+GST will be debited from customer’s saving bank account.
- Interest will be charged if the Total Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date. Interest will be charged on the Total Amount Due and on all new transactions (from the transaction date) till such time as the previous outstanding amounts are paid in full. Also, interest will be levied on all cash advances from the date of the transaction until the date of payment.
- The rate of interest may be changed at the sole discretion of ICICI Bank.
- In case of default, interest charges may increase up to a maximum of 3.8% per month (46% per annum).
The following illustration will indicate the method of calculating interest charges: In the table given below, it has been assumed that the Total Amount Due of the previous month statement has been paid by the payment due date and there is no outstanding amount. The statement date is 15th of every month. Given these assumptions, interest will be calculated as below:
|Purchase on April 10, 2019||2,000|
|Total Amount Due on statement dated April 15, 2019||2,000|
|Minimum Amount Due on statement dated April 15, 2019||100|
|Payment due date - May 3, 2019|
|Purchase on May 7, 2019||800|
|Payment on May 10, 2019||1,500|
|On statement dated May 15, 2019, following interest charges will be levied:|
|Interest calculations @ 42% per annum|
|a)Interest on Rs. 2000 for 30 days (from April 10 to May 9)||69.04|
|b)Interest on Rs. 500 for 6 days (from May 10 to May 15)||3.45|
|c)Interest on Rs. 800 for 9 days (from May 7 to May 15)||8.29|
|Total interest charged in the statement dated 15th May||80.78|
GST will be applicable on interest charges.
Late Payment Charges (LPC):
Late payment charges will be applicable if the Minimum Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date.
llustrative Example for Calculation of Late Payment Charges:
Payment of at least Minimum Amount Due i.e. Rs 100 in the above example, is required to be paid by the payment due date (3rd May), to ensure that no late payment charges are levied. If minimum amount due is not paid, late payment charges would be levied as per the below table:
|Total Amount Due||Late Payment Charges|
|Less than Rs 100||None|
|Between Rs 100 - Rs 500||Rs 100|
|Between Rs 501 - Rs 10,000||Rs 500|
|More than Rs 10,000||Rs 750|
Thus, in the above example, since the minimum amount due of Rs 100 is not paid by the payment due date of May 3, 2019 and since Total Amount Due was Rs 2000, late payment charges of Rs 500 will be levied on 4th May, 2019. This charge will also be applicable if you make a payment of less than the minimum amount due by the payment due date. GST will be applicable on late payment charges.
Interest- Free (Grace) Period:
The grace period could range from 18 to 48 days.
Illustrative Example for the calculation of grace period: For a statement for the period from April 15, 2019 to May 15, 2019 the payment due date would be June 2, 2019. Assuming that you have paid your Total Amount Due of the previous month statement by the payment due date, the grace period would be:
For a purchase dated April 24, 2019, the interest-free grace period is from April 24, 2019 to June 2, 2019, i.e. 40 days.
For a purchase dated May 14, 2019, the interest-free grace period is from May 14, 2019 to June 2, 2019, i.e. 20 days.
Thus, the grace period can vary depending upon the date of purchase. However, if the Total Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date, then there will be no interest free period.
For cash advances, interest is charged from the date of the transaction until the date of payment.
Withdrawal Limits: The Credit Limit and Cash Withdrawal Limit are communicated at the time of delivery of the Card and are also indicated in the monthly statements. Available credit limit is calculated by deducting the utilized limit from the Total Credit Limit. In case the Card Member has availed of any loan within the credit limit on the card, the outstanding loan amount will also be deducted from the Total Credit Limit to arrive at the Available Credit limit. Cash limit will be a sub-set of credit limit and will be NIL for the first one hundred and eighty (180) days from the date of issuance of the Card, on select Cards as may be specified by ICICI Bank. After the expiry of the first 180 days period from the date of issuance of the Card, the cash limit will be made available to the Card Member by ICICI Bank at its sole discretion and on such terms as may be communicated by ICICI Bank from time-to-time. The Card Member shall be entitled to apply for a review / enhancement / reduction of the credit limit and/or cash limit if provided by ICICI Bank, upon completion of 12 months of his membership. Alterations upon such review, if any, of the credit limit and/or cash limit will be at the sole discretion of ICICI Bank. ICICI Bank shall at its sole discretion be entitled to review (including enhancement or reduction) the credit limit and/or the cash limit assigned on the Card at any time and only enhancements, if any, to the credit limit and/or the cash limit, shall be effected by ICICI Bank along with the consent of the Card Member.
a) Billing Statements – periodicity and mode of sending: All Card Member will be billed on a monthly basis for all charges incurred by the use of the Card and for all charges applicable to the card account. However, there may be no statement generated for the period in which there has been no outstanding due and no transaction on the account in the past month. The billing statement will be dispatched on a monthly basis to customers at the mailing address as per our records by post and/or by e-mail.
b) Minimum Amount Payable: Without prejudice to the liability of the Card Member to immediately pay all charges incurred, the Card Member may exercise the option to pay only the Minimum Amount Due (MAD) indicated in the statement by the due date. The Minimum Amount Due shall be 5% of the outstanding amount. In case of any repayment through installments, the installment amount due during the statement period will be added to the Minimum Amount Due. If the total outstanding is more than the credit or cash limit, then the amount by which the credit or cash limit has been exceeded will also be included in the Minimum Amount Due. Minimum Amount Due shall also include unpaid Minimum Amount Due of the previous statements, if any. Interest will be charged if the Total Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date even if the Minimum Amount Due has been paid.
If customer has registered for Auto Debit facility towards Credit Card repayment and has selected Minimum Amount Due option then the same will be executed on the due date provided no amount is paid by the customer before due date. If customer has paid an amount less than Minimum Amount Due before due date then differential amount would be debited. If customer has paid an amount which is equal to or more than Minimum Amount Due before due date then no additional amount will be debited from customer’s liability account.
If you spend Rs 5,000 and pay back exactly the Minimum Amount Due (subject to a minimum payment of Rs 100) every month, it will take you up to 6 years and 6 months to pay back the total amount. We therefore suggest that whenever your cash flows allow, pay back an amount substantially more than your Minimum Amount Due.
No merchant refund/cashback/credit due to transactions converted to EMI / cancelled transactions / reversals / promotional cashback will be considered as a payment towards the outstanding of the card.
In case card member makes an excess payment compared to the outstanding of the card, there will be credit balance in the card account. This will be adjusted against the subsequent transactions on the card. However no interest can be claimed on this excess credit amount.
c) Method of payment: Payments towards the Card Account may be made in any of the following ways:
Cash: The Card Member may deposit cash at any of the branches of ICICI Bank towards the Card payment. Such payments at branches would attract a fee of Rs 100 per payment transaction.
Cheque/Draft: Make a cheque or draft favouring ICICI Bank Credit Card No. XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX and drop it into the collection box at any ICICI Bank branch / Skypak drop boxes / ATM locations where drop boxes are available.
If customer has made the payment towards the Credit Card dues by cheque then Credit limit equal to cheque amount will be released only post realisation of the cheque.
