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 INR 1,00,000 on a 6-month EMI and your credit limit is INR 2,00,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by INR 1,00,000. After payment of your first month's EMI of INR 15,000, the blocked amount will come down to INR 85,000.
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 4,05,000
Let's say 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 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
