How is YES Credit Card Interest Rate Calculated

YES Bank credit card interest rate calculation is done by considering several factors. Once the bank decides the rate, it charges you according to the decided interest rate on your YES Bank credit card based on usage. The formula used for calculating the total interest charges in a month is:

YES Bank credit card finance charges = (Total outstanding amount x Monthly Interest Rate x 12 months x number of days)/365 days.

To understand this, let’s take an example:

YES Bank Credit Card Rate of Interest

42.00% per annum

Transaction Date

01.05.2022

Purchase Amount

₹20,000

Credit Card Statement Generation Date

05.05.2022

Total Amount Due

₹20,000

Minimum Amount Due

₹1,000

Payment Due Date

26.05.2022

Next Credit Card Statement Generation Date

06.06.2022

Minimum Amount Due Not Paid

If you do not pay the minimum amount due, i.e. ₹1,000 by 26.05.2022, then the YES Bank credit card interest rate will be levied on the outstanding balance on a day-to-day basis from the transaction date to the repayment date. You will also be required to pay an additional late payment fee.

Partial Payment Made

If you pay 50% of the outstanding bill, i.e. ₹10,000 on 21.05.2020 and do not make any new spends till the next statement generation date (06.06.2022), they will charge you on the outstanding amount from the transaction date to the date of partial payment, as well as the interest accumulated on the remaining balance from the date of partial payment to the date of next statement generation. The sum of these two charges is known as interest accrued.

 

i) Interest charges on the total dues from the transaction date to the partial payment date:

(Count of days from the transaction date to the payment date x Total outstanding balance x Interest Rate per annum) ÷ Days in a year

(21x 20,000 x 42.00%) ÷ 365 = ₹483.29

 

ii) Interest charges on the pending dues the date of partial payment to the date of next statement generation:

(Count of days from the date of partial payment to the next statement generation date x Pending amount x Interest rate per annum) ÷ Days in a year

(15 x 10,000 x 42.00%) ÷ 365 = ₹172.60

Therefore, interest accrued to be paid is = ₹655.89 (₹483.29+ ₹172.60)
