Types of Credit Limits

The Axis Bank credit limit can be classified into three types:

  • Total Credit Limit

The total credit limit means the maximum credit limit on your Axis Bank credit card. With every transaction, the total credit limit will decrease. However, you can restore it by making timely credit card bill payments.

  • Available Credit Limit

It is the type of credit limit on your Axis Bank credit card available on a specific date. For example, if your available limit is ₹1,00,000 and you already spent ₹60,000, then ₹40,000 is your available credit card limit.

  • Card Cash Limit

With this type of credit limit, you can make 20% to 40% of the credit limit's withdrawal as cash during an emergency. The Axis Bank credit card cash withdrawal limit comes with a fee.

Factors Deciding the Credit Card Limit

The following are the factors that decide your Axis Bank credit card limit:

  • Debts and Income

Axis Bank considers the ratio of debt-to-income as a very important factor while evaluating your Axis Bank credit card’s limit. The lower the debt-income ratio, the higher would be your card limit.

  • Credit History

If your credit score is high, then you will be offered a high credit limit as a good CIBIL score signifies the repayment of credit in due time.

  • Other Cards Limits

The available limit on your other credit cards is another factor considered by Axis Bank to determine your credit limit.
