Credit Cards for Salaried in India – High & Low Salary

Plastic money aka credit card has become an integral part of the wallet. And whether you use it or not having a bunch of cards is infact considered a matter of pride. What attracts individual’s towards a credit card is that someone else is paying for them for short period of time and it’s repayment can be done later in parts (minimum amount) or pay in full or can be totally delayed. Although you can get credit card if you are student or housewife with no income but if you are a salaried individual, credit card companies will entice you with offers, reward points, no annual fee or low joining fee. This is because return on investment from one customer is what makes them earn big profits from various charges such as interest rates, processing fees, ATM withdrawal etc. and most importantly other various hidden charges which many of us are not even aware of until we receive the bank statement. So here is the table showing the salary requirement of various card issuers in India and name of the card available.
