One of the most distinguishable features of credit cards is that you can convert your payments into EMI’s so that you don’t have to face the blunt on your finances when you make a big purchase. HDFC Bank is one among the many lenders that give you the provision of converting your purchases into EMI’s. So, when your HDFC credit card payment becomes huge, it can be easily converted to smart EMI. 

In order to convert your payments into EMI’s, you need to check your eligibility first.

•    Login to HDFC Bank NetBanking
•    Go to the credit cards section and choose Smart EMI option
•    If you are eligible for the conversion, you will receive an SMS or call with the details of eligible amount, tenure and interest rate. For call, if you are interested in conversion, the loan can be booked immediately as it is pre-approved. For the SMS, if you are interested in the conversion, after accepting the terms and conditions, you can send the code mentioned in the SMS for confirmation. 
•    If you are not eligible, you may have to call the customer care to seek more information 
Apart from being convenient and pocket-friendly, Smart EMI option has other features as well.
