IRCTC Platinum SBI Credit Card Credit Limit
The credit limit depends on the income, credit score, job or business stability along with other factors. So, to get a higher credit score limit, it’s important to have a decent income and have a good credit score well past 750. It is also important to have a stability in either your job or business.
Existing cardholders can get good credit limit by asking SBI to raise the credit limit. After receiving the request of limit enhancement, SBI will check the repayment pattern, employment and business details before coming to a decision of whether it will raise the credit limit or not.
A good credit limit or a higher credit limit does not mean that you should spend an excessive amount which will be more than your ability to pay back on time. Over-spending and failure to make a payment by the due date can create a default-like situation in which the creditors might raise interest rates to the default (or penalty rate) or decrease the line of credit. In case of serious defaulting on a credit card, the bank can even take legal action to enforce payment.
This is not a situation anybody would want to be in as default is a serious credit card issue that affects not only your standing with the credit card issuer but also your credit standing in general and your ability to get approved for other credit-based services. The reasons are obvious, the credit score would come down, which could make it tricky to gain an easy approval to the credits you may apply in the future.
In addition, you would struggle to meet other financial liabilities that you may have to carry out on a monthly basis.
At the same time, don’t be too less on the utilization as that would make it hard to build a credit history for you and would interfere with your good credit score. So, you need to strike a balance between the annual spends to ensure a proper credit utilization ratio, translating into a good credit history and a non-default situation.
Do away with the bill payment delays by adding your IRCTC Platinum SBI Credit Card to the list of billers via net banking and pay your bills on time and avoid default.
If you are using the Internet Banking of SBI or some other bank, mention your credit card number correctly. You will receive an SMS indicating the total due and due date. You can login and pay from the comfort of your home or office either on or before the due date.
