    Please don’t take IDFC First Bank Mellicredit credit card, as I had a very worst service with them, they will put holds on funds or your other accounts linked IDFC if you not make the payment for first time itself and no banks will Lien account for missing the first payment and the executives will lie a lot and I have no trust left on IDFC any more as a old customer to them from 4 years. The thing is I recently got IDFC Mellennia credit card and my bike meet with an accident and I was not able to pay the minimum dues and I promised to pay next month that is Jul 10th and for the first month itself they have stolen money from my savings account and keeps my account on hold, and all the other banks will have atleast some exceptions to make the payment or give a certain date to make the minimum payment, but these guys will directly put holds on your other savings account linked with IDFC and blackmail you to make the payment and as promised I have payed the minimum amount of ₹10,000 this month that is Jul 2021 but there is still hold on my savings account for ₹9600 and not released yet. My personal experience with IDFC Mellennia credit card is very worst and I don’t recommend any one to take this card and if you’re not able to make the payment for any emergency reasons, you’re gone at that case.
