  • Order value should be above Rs. 1,500 (either the cost of a single item or sum of many items in the same order)
  • Not available for jewellery and gold coins

Banks charge annual interest rates according to the reducing monthly balance. Here, the principal amount is reduced with every EMI and the interest is calculated on the outstanding balance. The table below shows a representative rendering of EMI plans for a Rs. 20,000 purchase using the EMI payment plan of HDFC bank.
