If you are planning to apply for your credit card, you must know a few things about it.

First, there is a big difference between your regular ATM cum debit card and credit card. Many tend to make mistake in this regard. So it is important you learn about it. A credit card is a plastic card that allows the user to purchase the product on credit. Once you buy the product through your credit card, your bank will start deducting money every month for that purchase till the amount is repaid.

Obviously, it is a great help for customers who can easily make a purchase even when they do not have cash with them. Depending upon one’s income, the bank gives a credit limit. You need to make a purchase within that credit limit. And not just banks, various NBFCs such as Bajaj Finserv also issue credit card. All you have to do is to apply for credit card.

It takes around 7 to 10 days to get your credit card activated once you receive the card from the bank. Always make sure that you check the activation time from the bank or NBFC before you apply for your credit card.
Keep good transaction reports and credit score in order to get a credit card quickly.
