To obtain a credit card, it is essential to comply with the eligibility standards established by the credit card issuer. The specific criteria for approval vary depending on the card you choose. However, if you do not meet the requirements, your application might be declined, and this could impact your credit rating. Therefore, it is advisable to review the eligibility guidelines carefully before applying for a credit card.

Factors that affect the credit card eligibility criteria
Credit cards have become an essential tool in managing one's finances. Like any other financial product, credit cards come with eligibility criteria that need to be met to be approved. Here are some factors that affect credit card eligibility:
Credit history: Credit history is one of the primary factors that determine your eligibility for a credit card. Lenders check your credit report to assess your credit worthiness and credit behaviour. A good credit history increases your chances of getting approved.
Income: Lenders also check the income of an applicant to ensure repayment capacity. A higher income bracket increases the chances of approval.
Age: The minimum age requirement to apply for a credit card is 18 years. However, some banks have a higher age requirement for premium credit cards.
Employment status: Lenders consider the employment status of the applicant to assess the stability of the income source. A salaried individual is more likely to be approved than a self-employed person.
Debt-to-income ratio: Lenders check the debt-to-income ratio to ensure that the applicant can manage repayments alongside other debts and expenses.

Frequently asked questions
A credit card is a payment instrument that gives customers a pre-set credit limit. Using this credit limit, the customer can pay for purchases without having to pay in cash or issuing a cheque. The card’s limit is decided by the financial institution depending on the customer's credit score and monthly income.
The minimum age to get a credit card in India is 18 years. However, Bajaj Finserv maintains 21 years as the minimum age, keeping the repayment capacity of the applicants in mind.
You can easily apply for the Bajaj Finserv RBL Bank SuperCard by applying online and keeping the necessary documents handy.
An important consideration when choosing a credit card is salary. A person making, let's say, Rs 50,000 a month qualifies for a different kind of card than someone making Rs 25,000 a month.
There are certain lenders who offer credit cards to people with modest incomes, but these applicants have low credit limits and their spending is also restricted to not more than three times their monthly earnings.
