RBL Bank is among the top banks in the country offering a wide range of products to its customers all over the country. Among the top products offered by the bank, credit cards are among the most popular.
Along with a wide range of features and benefits which an RBL Bank Credit Card comes with, it also comes with an interest rate added to the credit amount due if not paid within the due date.
An interest rate is a fee charged by your credit card provider on the amount you borrowed using your card. However, you will be charged an interest rate only if you haven’t paid the total outstanding bill amount within the due date or the interest-free period, whichever is applicable. Currently, RBL Bank charges an interest rate of up to 3.99% per month which is 47.88% per annum on the RBL credit cards.
Popular Bank's Credit Card Interest Rates
If the monthly interest rate charged by your credit card provider is 13%, 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 13% per month x 12 months) X number of days] / 365 days.
Interest rates charged by RBL Bank may go up to 3.99% p.m. or 47.88% p.a. However, the rate of interest charged by the bank may differ from credit card to credit card, your relationship with the bank, and on the usage of your card.
Apart from not paying the total due amount within the due date, there are many other activities or transaction on your card that attracts interest rates. Some of them are as follows:
RBL Bank offers an interest-free period that ranges from 20 to 50 days depending on the date of the transaction. This feature is applicable only if your previous month’s balance is paid in full. If you make the total outstanding balance within the interest-free period, you will not be charged anything additional. Which means that you have enjoyed the credit facility at a zero percent rate.
Example for grace period:
Let us assume that the payment due date is on 2 July 2021, and if the previous month's dues have been paid in full-
Interest free period for a purchase on 16 May 2021 is 16 May 2021 to 2 July 2021: 47 days.
For a purchase on 15 June 2021, the interest free period is 15 June 2021 to 2 July 2021 = 17 days.
If only a part of the payment has been made, there will be no interest free period and interest charges applicable.
On all cash advances, RBL Bank charges the monthly interest rate from the date of withdrawal till the amount is paid in full. Please refer to the table above to know the monthly interest rate on your RBL Bank credit card.
If you have not paid the total due amount within your due date, the interest rate will be charged on the total due amount from the transaction date till all the previous balance is paid in full.
If you default on your credit card payments, RBL Bank will get in touch with you and remind you to make your payment. If you aren't able to pay the minimum due amount, your credit card will be blocked. RBL Bank has the right to report you to the Credit Information bureaus which will negatively affect your credit score.
