The credit limit offered by State bank of Hyderabad is 75,000. Actually, it is not sufficient for me, planning to upgrade my limit. It is a life time free card. There are some reward points and cash back offers are available for my card. I had no issues with the SBH with regards to my credit card.

State Bank of Hyderabad is very good than other public banks. As their customer service and response is satisfactory. No loan offers on my platinum credit card. Nine hundred rupees is the annual charge, I guess. Overall I am satisfied with the bank.
Credit card application process is very lengthy with State Bank of Hyderabad. Since my salary norms did not meet the eligibility criteria, they are not able to sanction the credit card to me. The salary drawn by the applicant must be above 25K. They are collecting the mandatory documents as per the bank norms.
