In India these days people are using Credit Cards the most to make the payment of the things or products I can say which they purchase from online and offline merchants. And when we make our payments with the help of CC’s we get some cashback, discounts and reward points against all the purchases we make with our card which is beneficial for us and we save some amount of money as well. So these days even students want to hold an credit card for him or herself and luckily students can also get Credit Card in India.
As we are seeing the increase in the payments using credit cards in India, issuers or banks are opting in new types of credit card and student credit card is one among them. We have published articles on best cards for travel, best card for online shopping, best card for fuel purchase and best card for movies in India you can read those articles by using the link provided here. The minimum age which is required to get a credit card for student for now is 18 years but we think this limit can be reduced further because students these days are earning for the small age itself by doing some outstanding stuff like Blogging, App developing etc. 🙂
