Question Do all credit cards require annual fees and joining fees Answer  No, not all cards have an annual fee or joining fee. There is usually no annual fee charged for a first-time credit card. However, you should note that cards that apply annual fees often offer more benefits than cards with zero annual fees.           

Question Can withdraw cash from ATM using my credit card Answer  This facility is known as cash advance. You can withdraw a portion of your total credit limit from an ATM. But such withdrawals attract additional charges and higher interest rates. Therefore, you should always avoid withdrawing cash from credit cards and   go for a personal loan if you are in urgent need of cash.               

Question Can my credit card limit be increased later Answer  Card issuing institutions keep changing the credit limit from time to time. This is usually done taking into account your past payment track record and your credit history.         

Question Is interest charged for non payment of credit card bill Answer :  Interest rates apply on the balance related to your card. Among all the loan instruments available to the customer, credit card interest rates are the highest. In most cases, interest rates start from 18% and can even go up to 45% per annum depending on various factors such as the type of card, policies of the card issuer.
