Interest on cash advances is applicable from the date of transaction until the payment is made in full.
When the customer carries forward any outstanding amount or avails of Cash Advance, interest calculated by average Daily Balance Method, will apply to balances carried forward and to fresh usage.

Payment Due Date 10th
Minimum Payment Due Rs.100.
Payment of Rs.100 made on 10th May.
Balance carried forward (Revolved Amount) Rs1900.

The Cardholder must notify the 24-Hour Customer Helpline number immediately if the primary or any Additional Credit Card is misplaced, lost, stolen, mutilated, not received when due or if he/she suspects that the Credit Card is being used without Cardholder's permission. Once a card is reported lost, it should not, under any circumstance be used if found by the Cardholder subsequently. As the Add-on-Card is an extended facility given on the primary Card Account, the Add-on-Card is rendered invalid when the primary card is reported lost.
The Bank is not liable or responsible for any transactions incurred on the card account prior to time of reporting of the loss of the Card, and the Cardholder will be fully liable for the same. After the receipt of proper notification of the loss by the Bank, the Cardholder's subsequent liability is Nil. In addition to notifying J&K Bank about the loss or theft of the Card, the Cardholder must report loss or theft of Cards to the Police and lodge an FIR.
The Cardholder will be liable for all losses in case of misuse of the card by someone who obtained the PIN/CVV/MasterCard Secure (M Secure) or the card with the consent of Cardholder or an Add-on Cardholder.
If the Cardholder has acted fraudulently without reasonable care, the Cardholder shall be liable for all losses incurred.
J&K Bank may, without referring to the Cardholder or any Add-on-Cardholder, give the police or other relevant authorities any information that J&K Bank consider relevant about the loss, theft or misuse of a Card or PIN/ CW/ MasterCard Secure (M-Secure).
