Credit card rules will change
In early April, the Reserve Bank of India issued a set of guidelines that card issuers must follow when issuing debit or credit cards. The new rules will take effect on July 1. The Reserve Bank of India (Credit Card and Debit Card – Issuance and Conduct) Directive, 2022, includes instructions on billing and credit card closure. The provisions will apply to every Scheduled Bank (excluding Payment Banks, State Co-operative Banks and District Central Co-operative Banks) and all Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) operating in India.

The regulator states that your credit card billing cycle will begin on the 11th of the previous month and will end on the 10th of the current month if your credit card statement is generated on the 10th of the month. Furthermore, there should be no delay in the credit card billing statement. According to the RBI, card issuers need to ensure that bills / statements are sent promptly, emailed and that the customer has sufficient days before charging interest, paid at least a fortnight.
