By applying for a Bank of Baroda credit card, you can track the status of your card application from the website of the bank. If you have applied for the card from BankBazaar, the website also gives you the means to track the application status of your card.
You can track the credit card application status through offline methods as well such as contacting the customer care of the bank or visiting the nearest branch of Bank of Baroda.
If you have internet access, knowing the status of your credit card application is just a few clicks away. Mentioned below is a step to step guide to check the status online.
The ‘in-progress’ status indicates that the bank has received your application and is still reviewing it.
If the bank finds any issue with your application such as missing details or documentation, it may keep your application on-hold. In such cases, you’re likely to receive a call from the bank for further clarification. In case, you haven’t received any response for a week days, call BOB customer care to know the reason for the same.
An ‘Approved’ status indicates your application has been processed successfully and your card is awaiting printing and dispatch.
Once the card is dispatched, typically through a speed-post or courier, you will see the status as ‘Dispatched’. You will also receive a message about the dispatch details. With those details, you can also check how far your card has travelled. Under the ‘Customer Corner’, there is another option called, ‘Track Dispatch Detail’, using which you can track the status of your speed post/courier. You need to enter AWB number to know the status.
In case, you are not eligible for the credit card as per the bank’s norms, your application will get rejected and you will see the same as the status. Once your credit card application is rejected, you need to wait 3-6 months to re-apply again. It’s always better to call the customer care and check the reason for rejection, so that you can be little cautious while applying it next time.
You will receive the ‘no records found’ option, if the details entered by you are incorrect or when the bank didn’t receive your application yet. Re-enter your details with correct information and also make sure to check the status a week after submitting your application allowing the bank to update the details.
Other Banks Credit Card Status
If you don’t have internet access, you can use the offline channels to check the status of your credit card application.
In order for you to receive your credit card, the bank has to first process your application. Once this is done, and once the bank feels that you have met the required eligibility criteria they will process your application. Ideally, it takes up to 21 days from the date of application to get your credit card delivered to your address.
After applying for a credit card, you need to wait for at least a week before trying to check your credit card application. This is because banks take a long time to verify whether you have presented all the documentation before moving it onto the next step. When they do this, they will also update the same on their online database which in turn will be made available to you on a much later date.
Banks don’t reject your application without any reason. So, you need to check your application carefully and understand why it could have happened. For starters, if you have applied for a higher limit credit card with a low salary, your card will be rejected. So, you need to do your research and find out if you meet the eligibility criteria before submitting an application.
When a person applies for a credit card, banks will generally make a hard enquiry on your credit account with the CIC. A hard enquiry is basically the bank asking the CIC about your score and giving the reason that you are looking for a line of credit. Each time you apply for a loan, it is called a hard enquiry. The higher the instance of this occurring, the more your credit score can take a hit. So, never apply for too many cards at the same time.
Ideally, you should wait for 3 to 6 months to apply for a credit card. Also, if your credit score is the reason behind your application getting rejected, you need to work on the same and prove to the bank that you have improved and can handle a credit card.
