The OneCard Mobile App📱
You can control the OneCard entirely from the powerful OneCard Mobile App, some of the actions being:
- Set your App PIN
- Activate your OneCard
- Make credit card bill payments
- Manage your virtual credit card
- Control your credit and cash withdrawal limits
- Enable online, domestic and international usage
- Set your OneCard PIN (For use at Point of Sale and ATMs)
- Raise disputes or service queries on any aspect of your OneCard
We have ensured that you can do the above transactions only in a secure environment after you authenticate yourself with your preferred authentication mechanism (Fingerprint/PIN). As a cardholder, you should be aware of the features and impact of these transactions as you would be responsible for your actions within the OneCard App.
Virtual Credit Card 💳📲
In addition to the physical OneCard, you will receive as part of the on-boarding process, a virtual rendition of the same OneCard which will be available on the OneCard App.
This virtual card is also a VISA powered credit card so that you can use it for any online or mobile application-based transactions or purchases. The security parameters are set as per industry standards.
A) FEES AND CHARGES 👀
We believe in keeping your life simple and our charges reflect our endeavour in that direction.
As long as you use the OneCard within your approved credit limit, and pay the full outstanding by the due date, we wont charge you anything. However, in cases of delays in payments or part payments or using your card beyond the limit, there would be some charges levied. Here’s a list of these charges:
Goods and Services Tax (GST) is applicable on all fees, interest and other charges and is subject to change as and when notified by the Government of India
* Cash Withdrawal from ATMs
You can use the OneCard to withdraw cash from ATMs in India and/or overseas (except foreign currency transactions in Nepal and Bhutan) in accordance with the compatibility of the OneCard at the said ATM(s). Cash withdrawal charges or ATM withdrawal fee as mentioned above shall be levied on all such withdrawals and would be billed to you in the next/forthcoming OneCard statement.
** Interest Free Grace Period
Please remember that this facility of an interest free (grace) period will not be available to you if you have not paid the previous month’s outstanding amount in entirety. An illustration of the calculation of the interest free (grace period) has been set out below.
Illustrative example for interest calculation
There was an outstanding amount in the November statement, paid partially by you.
December 17: Statement date. Shows overall outstanding amount of Rs.5,000.
December 25: You make a partial payment of Rs. 2,000.
December 30: You make a purchase of Rs.1,000.
January 17: The next statement is generated.
Assuming an interest rate of 30% per annum on the Card and 365 days in a year, interest will be levied as below:
GST at the prevailing rate (currently 18%) will be levied on interest, which is Rs.18.65.
This will be added to the outstanding amount so on January 17, the Total Amount Due will be Rs.4,122.25 (Rs.4,000 + Rs.103.57 + Rs.18.65).
The Minimum Amount Due is a variable percentage of Net Debits + Full Over The Limit amount + Full Finance Charges, if any (inclusive of Taxes) + Previous statement unpaid minimum amount dues if any.
The Minimum Amount Due variable percentage can range between (5% - 100%) and will be based upon the cardholder’s repayment status.
For the above illustration, say the system charges 10% of Net debits since the cardholder has repaid Total Amount Due partially but paid complete Minimum Amount Due of previous statement. In this case,
Minimum Amount Due (MAD) = (10% of Rs.4,000) + Rs.122.22 = Rs. 522.22.
*** Late Payment Fee
You are charged a Late Payment Fee if there has been no payment or a payment less than the Minimum Amount Due is received by the Payment Due Date.
Consider the Total Amount Due (TAD) is Rs. 5,000 and Payment Due Date is 4 May, 2020. In case the cardholder does not pay the Minimum Amount Due by the Payment Due Date, a Late Payment Fee of Rs. 125 will be levied on the next bill due date. Late Payment Fee is 2.5% of the TAD i.e. 2.5% X Rs. 5,000, which is Rs. 125.
B) DRAWAL LIMITS 💸
Your Credit Limit and Cash Withdrawal Limit are both dynamic and you can control them from the OneCard App. You can request for an increase in your credit limit from the app. Once approved, this amount would be your new Credit Limit.
“Available Credit Limit” or “Available Cash Limit” is the limit up to which you can make purchases or withdraw cash from an ATM respectively. The Cash limit is a part of the overall Credit limit assigned to you.
C) BILLING 📅
i) Billing statements (periodicity and mode of sending)
Your billing statement will be generated every month and you can view the statement in the OneCard App. It will contain a break-up of all purchases, repayments, fees, interest charges and taxes. In case the card was not used in a month, the statement will mention there were no spends in that month. The app also has an option to view the statement in PDF format, which can then be downloaded from the phone.
ii) Minimum Amount Due
When you get your OneCard statement, you can choose to pay the full amount (Total Amount Due) or pay just 5% of the Total Amount Due. This is known as Minimum Amount Due (MAD), and at least this amount must be paid before the Payment Due Date. The remaining balance can be carried forward to subsequent months. This Minimum Amount Due will be:
i) 5% of the outstanding amount or Rs.100 (whichever is greater) PLUS ii) Total sum of any card fee, overdue minimum payment iii) Any amount exceeding the credit limit iv) Entire amount of any Installments due (EMI)
You can also pay the Total Amount Due or an amount between the Minimum Amount Due and Total Amount Due. Payment should be made before Payment Due Date to avoid Late Payment Charges.
When you make a payment, it is adjusted in this order:
Billed Cash Advance Fees with Interest and Taxes ⏩ Billed Purchases with Fees, Interest and Taxes (as applicable) ⏩ UnBilled Cash Advance Fees with Interest and Taxes ⏩ UnBilled Purchases with Fees, Interest and Taxes (as applicable).
Within these, the payment is further adjusted as below:
Taxes ⏩ Fees ⏩ Interest ⏩ Purchases.
If Total Amount Due is less than Rs.100, Minimum Amount Due would be equal to the Total Amount Due, ie. Rs.100.
iii) Method of payment
You can pay the outstanding dues from the App itself, through the following modes:
a) Debit Card b) Netbanking c) UPI
