SBI Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Charges 

SBI credit card withdrawal charge is a one-time fee applicable every time SBI credit cardholders withdraw cash from an ATM. The withdrawal fee is also referred to as a cash advance fee. Generally, it's a particular percentage of the total cash withdrawn. The fee gets automatically added to their credit card bill for the next cycle. 

When it comes to SBI credit cards, it’s 2.5% of the cash amount withdrawn or Rs.500, whichever amount is higher. For example, suppose you withdraw Rs.30,000 from an ATM. The cash withdrawal fee would be Rs.750. However, if you withdraw only Rs.10,000, the withdrawal fee would be Rs.500 as 2.5% of 10,000 is Rs.250 only. 

SBI Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Interest Rate 

SBI levies finance or service charges for cash withdrawals from SBI credit cards. The finance charges are the interest rates that you must pay if you avail of the cash advance facility with SBI credit cards. The interest rates on credit card cash withdrawals will be applicable at a monthly rate of up to 3.50% or 42% per annum on all transactions from the day when one has used the credit card to withdraw the cash to the day when the amount has been repaid.

The interest rates are 3.50% per month or 42% per annum for unsecured cards and 2.75% per month or 33% per annum for Defence, Shaurya and secured cards.

SBI Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Charges Calculator 

The SBI bank charges 2.5% of the transaction amount or Rs.500, whichever is higher, as SBI credit card cash withdrawal charges. 

Let's consider a simple example to understand how this charge affects your cash withdrawal amount and repayment. 

For instance, if you withdraw Rs.20,000 using an SBI credit card cash advance, the bank will levy a cash advance fee plus interest or finance charge on this amount from the day of withdrawal until you complete the repayment. 

SBI Bank charges a monthly interest rate of 3.50% per month for unsecured credit cards. This means your payable amount after accumulating monthly interest rate and cash advance charges will become approximately Rs.21,200. 

SBI Credit Card Cash Withdrawal Limit

The total amount of cash that a cardholder can withdraw using their credit card is known as the credit card cash withdrawal limit. Generally, it is a percentage of the total credit limit available on the credit card in question. 

An important factor you need to keep in mind is that both credit limit and cash withdrawal limit get assigned to credit cardholders depending on their SBICPSL (SBI Cards and Payments Services Private Limited) credit criteria. Moreover, add-on cardholders and primary account holders share the same credit card limit. People get to know of these limits when they get their credit cards delivered. 

Every credit card statement contains the credit limit and cash limits for people to keep proper track. SBICPCL undertakes a periodic review of the cardholder’s accounts. This entity, may further, increase or decrease the credit limit of the cardholder depending on their internal criteria.

Usually, SBI provides a credit cash withdrawal limit of up to 80% of the credit limit. Gold and Titanium credit cardholders can withdraw a maximum of Rs.12,000 per day, and Prime, Platinum, Aurum, Elite and co-brand cardholders can withdraw a maximum of Rs.15,000 per day. 

The cardholder can increase the credit card cash withdrawal limit by writing to the SBICPCL and attaching every relevant financial document supporting their income. Once the financial entity feels satisfied with the analysis of the new documents, they will increase the credit card limit.

SBI Credit Card Annual Fee 

SBI customers can choose from a wide range of credit card options, including premium category and entry-level cards. All of these SBI credit cards have an annual or renewal fee which depends on the card type. Generally, SBI waives off certain charges if cardholders fulfil certain terms and conditions.
