It’s a myth that only high income earning individuals get credit card. The table above shows that if the card applicant has poor salary (e.g. less than Rs. 10,000 or 15,000 per month i.e. Rs. 1,20,000 or Rs. 1,80,000 per annum respectively), then also he/she can apply and get card approval. This is subject to the condition that the applicant also meets other eligibility criteria such as good credit score, submits all valid documents, etc. Note: The income mentioned above is as on January 2019. Banks keep on changing the terms and conditions and processes each application differently as per their rules. So if credit card application of low income earner gets approved that does not mean, application of other will also get approved. This is because every application is different. For more clarifications, please contact respective banks. Also, most banks do not specify income for many of their cards. You can visit respective bank or their website for details on more cards. There is a possibility that you may get better option than the ones listed above. If card application gets rejected then no need to worry. There are few other options to get card as follows: Add-on card: If any of the applicant’s family member (brother, sister or parents) has a credit card and a good CIBIL score, then he/she can apply for a supplementary card. But remember that, any default made by the add-on card holder will impact the credit score of the primary card owner. Banks will not ask for income proof of the supplementary applicant. Credit card against fixed deposit: You just need a FD account with the applicant bank. There is a minimum amount that you need to keep with the bank in order to get the card. Depending the amount, the card limit is set. There is no income proof required and documentation required is minimum since most of the details of the FD account holder are already held by the bank.
