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.

                                  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 for the 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 postprogram/Batch Start Date.
