EMI Facility on Debit Cards

Even though most of know what are EMIs, we do not understand the dynamics involved in EMI payments. Before we reach out for an EMI option, we should first understand how it works. Let’s assume that your credit card has a credit limit of ₹50,000 and you want to purchase a product worth ₹40,000 on EMI. In this case, you block the credit limit of ₹40,000 on your card. This amount then gets divided in 12 installments (supposing a 12 month installment period), along with the interest. Thus, EMI is granted against the ₹40,000 credit limit security of your card. In a debit card scenario, this security is missing and therefore most banks do not offer EMIs on debit cards. However, one way of covering this is fixed deposit.

Based on the fixed deposit option, ICICI Bank has launched the first EMI (Equated Monthly Installments) facility on debit cards to enable its customers to convert high value transactions into easy installments.

ICICI Bank debit cardholders, who have a fixed deposits with the bank can avail this facility and purchase on EMIs of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. This facility will offer certain advantages to customers; they can leverage on their fixed deposits and earn interest and also earn reward points on transactions. This will also help many customers, who have only debit cards, to buy and pay in EMIs—a facility which was so far available only for credit cardholders.

Following are the features, terms and condition of this facility:

  • No processing fee
  • Tenure option of 3, 6 ,9 and 12 months
  • Interest rate of 13% (on reducing basis)
  • EMI facility is applicable on all transactions above ₹10,000 at participating stores
  • No paperwork
  • Tie up with Samsung in 9000 stores pan India (Smart phones, Tablets, Televisions, Refrigerators, Air – Conditioners, Microwave etc)
  • Earn up to 6 PAYBACK points on transactions.
