                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)

                Will I have to pay any extra amount for the 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.

                Are there any fees or down payment?

                Certain banks charge nominal processing fees between INR 99 - 500 on 0% Credit Card EMI transactions. If charged will be billed in the first repayment instalment.

                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.

                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.

                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 ₹1,00,000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹2,00,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹1,00,000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15,000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85,000.

                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 4,05,000 

                Let's say the amount deducted at the time of the transaction: INR 3,79,850 (Principal amount) 

                Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 3,79,850 

                [Note: Interest factor is reducing the rate and not Flat rate] EMI AMOUNT = INR ​33,750 x 12 = INR 4,05,000 effectively, you have taken loan on 3,79,850 instead of 4,05,000
