Account Opening and Procedure
PRIME

Overall not a great credit card in my opinion. But if you’re looking for domestic lounge access with Visa Signature privileges, it's worth holding. Otherwise, if you’re asked to take a BOB card as a cross-sell to take a loan or other products, you could rather go for the Bank of Baroda Select credit card. If you can spend more, like 5L annually online or offline, it is better to go for the newly launched Eterna Credit card.
