By default, the HDFC Credit Card statement is sent to the customer’s address every month through a postal mail. I was initially a subscriber of the HDFC CC statement mailer. However, nowadays, I check the HDFC credit card bill amount and download all statements through netbanking or email. The credit card section of the latest HDFC mobile app also provides the option to view the credit card bill status. Why take the risk of late-paying your bill when HDFC bank’s digital platforms offer information on the CC bill amount, and the last date to make payment. Now if you are unable to download the PDF bill, we also have a phone number where you can call and get a mini-statement.
HDFC CC Statement: how to read the credit card bill
If you are first time to HDFC credit card statements, you might have a confusion regarding the details given in the bill. Please have a look at my HDFC Regalia CC bill sample and explanation of the terms.
We have numbered the important sections of the HDFC CC statement — check below to know how to read and understand the terms.
- Statement Date: This is the date on which HDFC Bank generates your credit card bill every month. Transactions made on this date won’t be added to the statement. It also gives you an idea about your HDFC CC statement cycle. In my case, the credit card bill cycle is from 14th of every month to 13th of next month.
- Payment due date: It is the last date for making your HDFC CC bill payment. If you plan to pay your HDFC credit card bill through third-party services like Cred, do it least two days before that due date to avoid late payment charges.
- Total dues: It’s the amount you need to pay the HDFC bank if you plan to settle the month’s credit card bill in full.
- Minimum amount due: You may also choose to pay the minimum amount due to keep your HDFC card account active, at the cost of interest on the remaining amount. The fee and interest charges are mentioned in the HDFC bank website, usually about 3-3.5% per month.
- Credit Limit: It is the maximum amount that you can spend with your HDFC Credit Card both online and offline.
- Available credit limit: It is the remaining credit available on your HDFC CC after all the transactions in the previous statement cycle.
- Available Cash limit: A part of the HDFC CC credit limit that you can withdraw as cash through an ATM. I have around 1.5 L as cash limit, but if I withdraw it, I have to pay a cash advance fee and the interest until I pay back the full amount to HDFC bank.
- Past dues (If any): This section of the HDFC Credit Card statement talks about your dues from past 3 months. In my bill it is all zero as I did the repayments in full and have no default history.
Finally comes the “Transaction description” section where you can view the details of all your credit card swipes in the previous bill cycle. Some of the transactions have confusing labels, like IGST VPS, Consolidated FCY Markup fee, etc. But these are service or tax (GST) related charges, and they appear when you have an EMI on your HDFC credit card, or if you did foreign currency transactions in the statement month.

Remember to whitelist and add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list to prevent the credit card bill ending up in your email spam or junk folder.
The email version of HDFC credit card statement is a digitally signed and secured document. Hence, you need a password to open it. HDFC sends the printed copy of the same file through postal mail.
