                  Payment

                  No cost CC EMI FAQ's

                  0% EMI with Third Party Credit Facilitators /Credit card option availability will vary program wise.

                  1. Which banks allow using 0% Credit card EMI or Credit card EMI?
                  No cost EMI is available on credit cards from all major banks (American Express, Bank of Baroda, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, RBL Bank, Standard Chartered, Axis Bank, Yes Bank, State Bank of India, CITIBANK and HSBC)

                  2. Is there any minimum transaction limit ?
                  Yes. 50000 is the minimum.

                  3. Standard Chartered Bank offers 18 or 24 months No Cost EMI ?
                  No. ONLY 12 months is available irrespective of the Program enrolled.

                  4. Will I have to pay any extra amount for EMI transaction?
                  If you are availing 0% credit card EMI, upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions. Your bank may levy GST or other taxes on the interest component of the EMI.

                  5. Are there any fees or down payment?
                  Certain banks charge nominal processing fees between INR 99 - 500 on 0% Credit Card EMI transaction. If charged, will be billed in the first repayment installment.

                  6. Can I use my International credit card for 0% credit EMI or Credit Card EMI?
                  Only the Indian bank credit cards can be used. But you can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions, this will be purely between you and your bank.

                  7. Are there any charges in case I opt for cancellation/refund from the course after paying balance with no cost EMI ?
                  Yes, there will be additional charges to the extent of interest paid by the upGrad to the bank, you will be refunded only Principal amount, i.e. the amount actually deducted/blocked from your card. This deduction will be in addition to the amount mentioned in the refund policy shared with your offer letter.

                  8. Can I Pay Using Multiple Credit Cards ?
                  Multiple cards can be used to complete the payments using Part payment option make sure to inform the learner, minimum transaction is INR 50000 to opt for 0% CC EMI E.g. Amount to be paid: 150000. I can pay using 2 Credit cards. Yes, Example :
                  HDFC Card – Part payment – INR 100000
                  ICICI Card – Part payment – INR 50000

                  9. How can I opt for Credit card EMI if my bank is not listed in the 0% Credit card EMI or Credit card EMI?
                  You can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions.

                  10. Why is the entire amount blocked on my credit card?
                  Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.

                  11. Why is interest getting charged on No Cost EMI?
                  Your bank will charge you interest. However, this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to upGrad.

                  Eg. Amount payable to upGrad: INR 405000
                  Let's say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850
                  [Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
                  EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000
                  Effectively, you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000

                  Refund Policy

                  Is there any deferral or refund policy for this program?

                  Refund Policy:   

                  1. Students must pay an applicable Caution Amount as mentioned in the Offer letter for enrollment to the Program. This Caution Amount will be adjustable against the total Program fee payable by the student.
                  2. Once the student has made a partial or full payment of Program fee, such student can claim a refund for this amount at any time before the cohort commencement date by raising a refund request through ‘My applications’ page on our website (www.upgrad.com), stating the specific reason for the refund. The refund shall be subject to a deduction of INR. 20,000/- towards processing fee. If less than INR. 20,000/- have been paid in total, students shall not be eligible for any refund in such a case. 
                  3. Students shall not be eligible for a refund (under any circumstances) if the refund request is raised post-program/Batch Start Date. In such a case, the student will continue to pay the EMI of his loan (if applicable), as the loan cannot be canceled. This is also applicable to students who could not complete their payment and could not get enrolled in their opted cohort. However, the student can request a Pre-signing of IU contract deferral as per the policy defined below for the same.
                  4. Students shall not be eligible for refund of any amount paid towards the Program in case any discrepancy is identified between your application and self-attested documents including but not limited to incorrect details about your grades or any other incorrect information provided in your application.
                  5. In case of a valid refund request post obtaining the loan from a third party credit facility provider, we would like to clarify that the responsibility of canceling the loan will lie with the student as upGrad is not privy to such arrangements between the student and the third party credit facility provider. 
                  6. If students do not provide requisite documents as per the timeline mentioned in the offer letter, they will be deferred to the next batch however such deferrals will be limited to 6 subsequent cohorts. Post these 6 deferrals upGrad will charge full program fees again. 
                  7. Also students will not be eligible for any refunds in scenarios mentioned in point 6.

                  Deferral Policy: (Pre- Signing of IU contract)

                  1. If a student, due to unavoidable circumstances, is unable to commence the batch and requests for a deferral before signing the IU contract, we provide the opportunity for the student to defer to another batch.  However, if a student is deferring from his assigned cohort mentioned in the offer letter, the student will not be eligible for any refund post the deferral.
                  2. A student can request for deferral only once before signing the IU contract and to any of the scheduled cohorts, which will start in the next 1 year from the batch start date of the student's initial batch. However, the student will be required to pay 50% of the total course fee amount (inclusive of taxes) before the deferral can be approved. Till this is completed, the student will be assumed to be continuing in the same cohort. 
                  3. The student has time till the current cohort commencement date to make the payment of the 50% program fee, post which the deferral request will expire. Once the deferral window expires, the student cannot request a refund, and the above-mentioned refund policy will apply.
                  4. The fee applicable to the deferred student will be as per the prevailing fee for the batch student has opted to defer to (No additional deferral fee is required to be paid).   

                  Deferral Policy: (Post Signing of IU contract)   

                  1. Deferral is not allowed post-signing of IU contract     
                  2. Further, post program commencement, you shall not be eligible to change the program and/or pause the Program.
