Thanks Neelima. This same thing was indicated in the HDFC card terms and condition found online which I have checked post reading this. They quote the same example as you have. I\'ll also point out that this kind of explanation is not given online in the terms and conditions or the schedule of charges for any other bank.

I've just been reading your article and I am afraid your calculation of annual interest is incorrect.

Your formula assumes 12 x monthly interest e.g. 12 x 2.65% = 31.8%, which is incorrect.

If you started with a balance of 100 rupees, then after one month, the balance would be 100 x 1.0265 = 102.65 rupees. In the second month, you would be charged 2.65% on the 102.65, in other words, the interest compounds month on month.

Hence the true annual interest rate is obtained by multiplying 1.0265 12 times which equals an annual interest rate of 36.87%, not 31.8% as you calculate.

I hope this helps.
