Are you withdrawing cash on your credit card?

Cash advance fee
This is the fee charged every time you withdraw cash using your Credit Card. Banks levy cash advance fees in the range of 2.5-3% of the transaction amount, subject to a minimum amount. The cash advance fee is the billing statement.
Regular Credit Card transactions attract finance charges and so do cash withdrawals. The charge is levied from the date of the transaction up until the repayment has been done.
Unlike regular transactions, there’s no interest-free period for cash withdrawals. It is calculated on a monthly percentage rate and varies from a bank to another bank. Usually, banks levy interest at the rate of 2-3%.
Unlike regular transactions, for cash withdrawals, there’s no interest-free period; charges start accruing from the day of the transaction till it’s paid in full.
Late payment fee
If you do not repay the full amount by the due date, late payment charges are levied on the outstanding balance. The late payment fee varies in the range of 15% to 30% depending on the bank.
Depending on your location, a credit card user is allowed up to 5 free ATM transactions per month. According to RBI guidelines, financial institutions are allowed to levy ATM maintenance or interchange fee beyond these free transactions.
Credit card holders should note that the above charges vary from bank to bank and the type of credit card you are using.
