AdvertisementUnder usual circumstances, using credit card to bring in some cash in your bank account is never advised. In fact this is not the way a credit card must be used.
This method is found to create some difficulties for the bank. The banks are instructed to supply the information of the customers who spend more than ₹200,000 per year on their credit cards. Hence when you try to generate free credit, you will automatically come under the surveillance of the income tax department and authorities who are supervising the unauthorized practices. However, this method is simpler, easier and cheaper than opting for a personal loan. You must make an informed decision by knowing the regulations in place.
