How to unblock the Bajaj EMI card if you’ve missed an EMI payment
The only way to unblock your card in this case is to pay your dues. You’ll need to repay the EMI you’ve missed, so your card can be unblocked. Making your EMI repayments is simple enough, and you can do it in any one of the following ways.
Visit the Bajaj Finserv branch nearest to you and settle your dues.
Use the mobile app to make the payment.
Pay the EMI through the official website.
Sign into Experia, the customer portal, to make your EMI payment.
How to unblock the Bajaj card if your ECS mandate has not been processed
An Electronic Clearing Service (ECS) mandate helps ensure that you never miss your EMI payments, since the EMIs automatically get debited from the bank account specified. In case you fail to certify your bank in order to allow the auto-debiting of your EMIs, your loan repayment remains unpaid. This, in turn, could lead to the blocking of your EMI card. And to unblock the card and keep it active, you should first get in touch with the service provider and understand the issue related to your ECS mandate in as much detail as possible.
Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re dealing with the ECS mandate issue.
If your bank has not accepted your ECS mandate, or if there are any inconsistencies with your account details in the mandate submitted, it’s best to leave nothing to chance.
Submit a new ECS mandate at the nearest Bajaj Finserv branch to initiate a new process for setting up an ECS mandate.
If you’re doing this at the beginning or during the middle of a month, ensure that you pay the advance EMI, since it’s mandatory to clear all your EMU dues on or before the 22nd of each month.
Till your ECS mandate is activated, you’ll need to perform this action manually.
Once you’ve successfully resolved the issues surrounding your ECS mandate, your Bajaj EMI card will be unblocked. It may take up to 45 days for the unblocking to be complete.
How to unblock the Bajaj Finserv card if your CIBIL score has fallen below 750
Your CIBIL score may have been adequate when you first subscribed to the EMI card. However, it’s also important to remain that your credit profile remains healthy consistently, since Bajaj Finserv looks into your CIBIL score periodically to ensure that you remain credit-positive. Ideally, you need to maintain a CIBIL score of 750 or higher in order to continue enjoying the benefits of the EMI card.
In case your CIBIL score falls below this limit, your Bajaj Finserv EMI card may be blocked for use. If this happens, here’s how to unblock your card.
Look into the reasons for your dipping CIBIL scores.
If there are any dues that remain unpaid, ensure that you settle them.
Take steps to restore your CIBIL score to 750 or higher.
After you’ve restored your score, obtain a copy of your latest credit report reflecting your new CIBIL score.
