Question: I have availed EMIs on my Credit Card. What happens to that during the moratorium?
Answer: EMIs and any Loan installments would be billed as usual and will form a part of your statement. EMI Installments which are billed to you as a part of the monthly statement but remain unpaid will start attracting Interest charges at the regular rate applicable on your Credit Card till they are paid. This is also applicable to any loan on your Credit Card.

Reply by Kotak – After Credit Card due Moratorium Acceptance

Dear Customer,

Hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy.

In line with the advisory issued by the Reserve Bank of India on March 27, 2020 due to the Covid-19 situation, we are pleased to provide you a moratorium for your Credit Card dues from March 1, 2020 to May 31, 2020 against your Kotak Credit Card.

You can now avail a 3-month moratorium on your Credit Card dues falling due between March 1, 2020, and May 31, 2020. Please note that interest shall continue to accrue on the outstanding portion of the credit card dues during the moratorium period.

Kindly note that at any time between March 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020, if you do not pay any amount towards your outstanding credit card dues or pay less than the Minimum Amount Due (MAD) by the due date, you shall be deemed to have consented to and agreed for moratorium* on the outstanding Credit Card dues and to the terms and conditions applicable to it. The moratorium allows you to defer the payment till May 31, 2020.

We would like to highlight that you will be charged Interest towards the unpaid dues during this period. The moratorium allows a deferment of credit cards dues from March 1, 2020 to May 31, 2020, but it is not a waiver of interest charges which will continue to accumulate on the outstanding amounts. The interest charged will get added to your next month outstanding on which further interest will be levied thereby having a compounding effect.

In case your cash flows are not affected because of COVID-19, we would recommend you to pay the Total Amount Due (or as much as possible) within the due date to avoid an accumulation of Interest charges on your Credit Card.

In your monthly Credit Card statement, we will include details of accumulated interest charges. We thank you for your continued patronage and assure of our best services at all times.
