  4. Security-  Security is an important factor. That’s why the Cardholder deposit cash, share, Treasury bond, cash equivalent or open a FDR account.
  5. TIN-  To collect in perspective Bangladesh point of view is so difficult. In spite of willingness men are not interested to become Cardholder.

In 5cycle bill are prepare and send to the cardholder 5th day of every month and last date of payment is 20th day of the month. The cardholder can pay the bill any branch of the National Bank. If any cardholder fails to pay the bill within the last date then he/she must pay 2% monthly interest and his/her card stop automatically.  But if the cardholder pay minimum bill (10% of the bill) then he/she must pay the interest on the balancing amount and can use the card as usual. On the other hand, if the card holder withdraws any cash amount from the ATM booth (maximum limit is 20% of card limit) a monthly charge of 2.5% is to be charged from the date of withdraw. In that case the cardholder will not get the 45 days credit payment facility.

At present, all cards are going to duplicate. Otherwise, the cheating matter increase with the use of credit card. Recently we watched the credit card duplicacy in Bangladesh.
