AMB- Average Monthly Balance in Operative account maintained with Federal Bank i.e. Average of all the closing-day balances in a given month. To calculate AMB, you need to add each day's end-of-the-day balance and divide it by the number of days in that month. AMB for a quarter will be average of AMB maintained in the 3 months of that quarter. APR will be updated before 10th of every month after AMB is refreshed.

Quarters are defined as follows: January, February and March as Quarter 1; April, May and June as Quarter 2; July, August, and September as Quarter 3 and October, November and December as Quarter 4. APR for Quarter 2 will be considered on the basis of average monthly balance for Quarter 1. For eg. 1st Jan-31st March AMB will be applicable for quarter 1st Apr- 30 th June etc.

Illustration:

On January 1, the balance in the Operative account is Rs 50,000.
On January 12, withdrawal of Rs 4,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 46,000.
On January 18, deposit of Rs 20,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 66,000.
Summing up the EOD balances: For 11 days-from January 1 to January 12-sum of EOD balance will be Rs (50000*11) = Rs 5,50,000
From January 12 to January 18, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (46,000*6) = Rs 2,76,000
From January 18 to January 31, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (66,000*13) = Rs 8,58,000.
Sum of all the EOD closing balances = Rs 16,84,000
Total number of days in January = 31
So, the average monthly balance will be 1684000/31 i.e. Rs 54,322.58
 

Similarly, for February and March, Average monthly balance is Rs. 70,000 and Rs. 95,000/- respectively then AMB for the Quarter will be (54,322.58 + 70,000 + 95,000)/3 i.e. 2,19,322.58/3 = Rs. 73,107.52 which is between Rs. 50,000- 3,00,000.
 

Therefore, APR offered to the customer will be 30.00% i.e. 2.49% per month for the next quarter.

Customers who are not maintaining an operative account with Federal Bank will be charged APR at 41.88% i.e.3.49% per month.

1. Fees and Charges

A. Fees payable on the Credit Card by the Card member : The fees may vary for each Card member, depending on the Card variant, offer (if any) etc. The same is communicated to the Card member at the time of applying for the Credit Card. The above fees as applicable are billed to the card account and are stated in the card statement of the month in which it is charged.
 

B. Cash Advance Fees: The Card member can use the Card to access cash in an emergency from ATMs in India or abroad. A transaction fee of 2.5% would be levied on the amount withdrawn subject to a minimum fee of Rs.500/- and would be billed to the card member in the next statement. The transaction fee is subject to change at the discretion of Federal Bank. All cash advances also carry finance charges equal to charges on revolving credit (please refer schedule of charges) from the date of withdrawal until the subject to change at the discretion of Federal Bank.

C. Charges :

i. Charges and fees, as may be applicable from time to time, are payable by card members for specific charges provided by Federal Bank to the card member or for defaults committed by the card member with reference to his card account.

ii. Federal Bank retains the right to alter any charges or fees from time to time or to introduce any new charges or fees, as it may deem appropriate, with due intimation to customer. For interest rates, pre-closure and cancellation charges on Loan on Credit Cards, Please Visit : https://www.federalbank.co.in/

iii. In case of default, interest charges may increase up to a maximum of 3.49% per month (41.88 % per annum).
 

D. Interest Free Period: The interest free credit period could range up to 48 days subject to the scheme applicable on the credit card and the submission of claims by the merchant.

For a statement for the period from Jan 15th 2021 to Feb 14 nd 2021 the payment due date would be Mar 2nd, 2021.

Assuming that you have paid your Total Amount Due of the previous month statement by the payment due date, the grace period would be:

1. For a purchase dated Jan 16th, 2021, the interest free grace period is from Jan 16, 2021 to Mar 2nd, 2021, i.e. 46 days.

2. For a purchase dated Feb 14th, 2021, the interest free grace period is from Feb 14th 2021 to Mar 2nd, 2021, i.e. 17 days.

Thus, the grace period can vary depending upon the date of purchase. This period will be free of interest only if all previous dues are paid in full and there is no unpaid balance carried over from previous months However, if the Total Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date, then there will be no interest free period. For cash advances, interest is charged from the date of the transaction until the date of payment.

E. Late Payment Charges (LPC):

Late payment charges will be applicable if the Minimum Amount Due is not paid by the payment due date.

Payment of at least Minimum Amount Due i.e. 500 in the below example-1, is required to be paid by the payment due date (assumed as 2nd Feb), to ensure that no late payment charges are levied. If minimum amount due is not paid, late payment charges would be levied as per the below table:

Statement Balance

Late Payment Charges (Rs.)

Less than Rs 100

0

Rs. 100- Rs. 500

100

Rs. 501 to Rs. 5,000

500

Rs. 5,001 to Rs. 10,000

600

Rs. 10,001 to Rs. 25,000

750

Rs. 25,001 to Rs. 50,000

950

More than Rs 50,000/-

1000

Thus, in the below example-1, since the minimum amount due of Rs. 500/- is not paid by the payment due date of Feb 2nd, 2021 and since Total Amount Due was Rs. 2000/-, late payment charges of Rs. 500/- will be levied on Feb 3rd , 2021. This charge will also be applicable if you make a payment of less than the minimum amount due by the payment due date.

F. Finance/Interest Charges

i. Interest Charges are paid at monthly percentage rate on all transactions from the date of transaction in the event of the Card member choosing not to pay his balance in full, and on all cash advances taken by the Card member, till they are paid back. Interest charges, if payable, are debited to the Card member’s account till the outstanding on the card is paid in full.

ii. When the customer carries forward any outstanding amount or availed Cash Advance, a finance charge calculated by average Daily Balance Method will apply to balances carried forward and to fresh billings.

iii. If a card holder avails the revolving credit facility of the Federal Bank Credit Card and hence chooses to pay an amount less than the total amount due reflected in the monthly billing statement, the entire outstanding amount would attract interest charges and all new transactions will also attract interest Charges till such time as the previous outstanding amounts are repaid in full. Revolving credit is a type of credit that does not have a fixed number of payments, in contrast to instalment credit.

iv. The following illustration will indicate the method of calculating interest charges: In the table given below, it has been assumed that the Total Amount Due of the previous month statement has been paid by the payment due date and there is no outstanding amount. The statement date is 15th of every month. Given these assumptions, interest will be calculated as below:

2. Limits

The Credit Limit and Cash Withdrawal Limit are communicated at the time of delivery of the Card and are also indicated in the monthly statements. Available credit limit is calculated by deducting the utilised limit from the Total Credit Limit. In case the Card Member has availed of any loan within the credit limit on the card, the outstanding loan amount will also be deducted from the Total Credit Limit to arrive at the Available Credit limit.

The Card Member shall be entitled to apply for a review for enhancement reduction of the credit limit and/or cash limit if provided by Federal Bank, upon tenure as decided by Bank. Alterations upon such review, if any, of the credit limit and/or cash limit will be at the sole discretion of Federal Bank. Federal Bank shall at its sole discretion be entitled to review (including enhancement or reduction) the credit limit and/or the cash limit assigned on the Card at any time and only enhancements, if any, to the credit limit and/or the cash limit, shall be effected by Federal Bank along with the consent of the Card Member.

A. The Credit Limit : This is the limit assigned to the Cardholder. The total outstanding, including all transactions, fees and charges should not exceed this limit

B. Cash Limit: This is the Cash Advance Limit assigned to the Cardholder. This limit is lower than the Credit Limit, and is a subset of the overall Credit Limit.

A transaction fee is levied on cash withdrawn from ATMs. Also, cash transactions always accrue interest from the transaction date, unlike retail purchases, where interest accrual depends on the payment of 100% balance payment by the Payment Due Date

C. Available Credit Limit: The Available Credit Limit at any time is the difference between the assigned Credit Limit and the outstanding balance on the Card at that point of time. The Add - on Cardholder(s) will share this Credit Limit assigned to the primary Cardholder

D. Available Cash Limit : The Available Cash Limit at any time, is the difference between the assigned Cash Limit & the outstanding cash balance on the Card at that point of time

3. Billing Statement:

Federal Bank will send the Card member a monthly statement showing the payments credited and the transactions debited to the Card member’s account since the last statement. The Bank will mail a statement of transactions in the card account every month on a pre-determined date, to the mailing address on record with the Bank. If balance outstanding is less than Rs. 200/- and there is no further transaction pending billing since the last statement, no statement will be issued.

A. Periodicity and Mode of sending statement: All Card Members will be billed on a monthly basis for all charges incurred by the use of the Card and for all charges applicable to the card account. The billing statement will be shared over email, on a monthly basis to customers. If the bill amount is less than Rs 200/-, the statement will not be generated.

B. Minimum Amount Due : Minimum Amount Due (MAD) is calculated as 5% of Total Amount Due (subject to minimum of Rs. 200/-), new EMI debits for the month or any previously unpaid EMI debits + GST + Fee. In the event the Card Member deposits part of the Total Payment Due or the MAD (not less than the MAD under any circumstance), the balance outstanding amount payable shall be carried forward to subsequent Statements. This amount will attract interest Charges until the date of full and final payment. Please note that paying only the Minimum Amount Due every month will result in the repayment stretching over a long period with consequent interest payment on Card Member’s outstanding balance. The interest charges will depend on the balance maintained by customer in the savings account for the last quarter.
