Popular Bank's Credit Card Interest Rates
An interest rate on the credit card is applicable if you have not paid your total outstanding amount or paid only a portion of your total outstanding amount as the minimum amount due.
For example, suppose the total outstanding amount on your card is Rs.20,000 and you paid Rs.10,000 as a partial payment. The remaining Rs.10,000 will be carried forward to next month’s statement and will attract a certain rate of interest.
If you have paid off your total outstanding amount, Canara Bank will not charge an interest rate on your credit card.
The bank calculates the rate of interest through the Annual Percentage Rate or APR. It is the total rate of interest applicable on your credit card per year.
Canara Bank charges a monthly rate of interest on the due amount daily. You can calculate the Daily Periodic Rate by dividing the Annual Percentage Rate by the total number of days in the year.
For example, if the monthly interest rate charged on your Canara Bank credit card is 2%, the formula used to calculate the interest rate you land up paying on an average daily balance method is as follows:
Interest Rate = [(Total Outstanding Amount x 2% per month x 12 months) X number of days] / 365 days.

The interest rate charged by the bank will be from the date of transaction date till the previous total balance is paid in full, in case your total amount due is not paid.

If you are not able to pay your total amount due, the bank will contact you regarding non-payment, and if still not paid, your credit card may be cancelled.
