HDFC Bank credit card is more than just a cashless shopping tool. The bank offers loans on select credit cards over and above your credit limit. These schemes are easy to apply and allow you to repay for higher value purchases via EMIs that fit into your budget. HDFC takes care of your finances by allowing you to transfer the balance on loan with other banks and repay at lesser interest with HDFC.
HDFC Bank offers four types of loans on credit cards.

- Smart EMI
It allows you to convert large purchases made with your HDFC credit card into EMIs. It comes with flexible tenure of 36, 24, 18, 12 and 9 months.
- Balance Transfer on EMI
You can transfer the outstanding balance on your other bank account, such as personal loan and car loan, to a new or existing HDFC credit card. This will allow you to repay the amount with lower EMIs through Balance Transfer on EMI.
