Credit Card : If you also use a credit card and for some reason have not been able to make the payment on the due date, then you do not need to panic. Actually, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has provided the option of payment without any charge to the customers after the due date is out. Due to which credit card users have got a lot of relief. Before this, if you could not pay the payment, then you had to pay a heavy penalty, but according to the new rules of RBI, the customers have been exempted. Let us know in detail…
RBI issued new rules
Actually, nowadays it is the era of digital and everyone prefers to do business online. In this episode, people do many things like electricity bill, TV recharge, etc. through credit cards and by mistake, if you forget to pay it on the due date, then you have to pay a heavy price for it. That’s why RBI has provided this facility for the customers. RBI has told banks and credit card issuers that they can take penalty only after three days of the due date. This means now you can make the payment within 3 days of your due date. With this you will not have to pay any extra cost.
Credit score will not be affected

Banks and credit card companies usually levy pre-determined late payment charges based on the outstanding balance. This results in late fees increasing in proportion to the size of the outstanding balance. The higher the amount of the bill, the higher the late fee, but as per the new rules, now you will not have to pay the penalty. By doing this you can also avoid penalty.
