If you fail to maintain the necessary balance, the account will be overdrawn to cover the amount due. The overdrawn amount attracts interest and must be cleared in 15 days.

      You can also use Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) facility. You can avail of free Demand Drafts from any Canara Bank branch towards payment of your card dues. You also have to option to remit cash or even cheques at any branches of Canara Bank.

    4. How is the interest-free credit period determined?

      You can get a minimum of 20 days interest free on your purchases and a maximum of 50 days. This depends on the date of your transaction and the billing date. If you clear your bills in full every month and do not carry forward a balance, then your interest-free period will reset and begin again. If you pay the minimum due, or partially, then the outstanding amount will attract interest from the due date. Any subsequent purchases will also attract interest immediately, without an interest-free period.

    5. What is the minimum due on my Canara Bank credit card?

      The minimum due is 5% of the billed amount. A minimum of Rs. 100 will be charged.

    6. What is the penalty for missing a payment?

      Missing a payment attracts a penalty of 2% + service tax on the outstanding amount not paid by the due date. Your card will also be temporarily suspended till you clear your debt in full.

    7. What happens if I cannot pay back my credit card bill?

      Use your card wisely, and don’t spend more than you can pay back. In the event you are unable to pay back your dues, your card will be hotlisted. Your default will be reported to CIBIL and included in the negative list. This will hamper your future credit opportunities. Apart from this, Canara Bank has the right to initiate legal action to recover the amount due.

    8. Why does Canara Bank insist I replace my card after going abroad?

      Canara Bank requests you to replace your card with a new one to avoid fraud. Skimming is a practice where fraudsters steal credit card information to make a duplicate. This practice is prevalent abroad. So upon your return, the bank will replace your card for free as a precautionary measure against skimming, duplication and fraudulent charges.
