Banks give credit cards to customers who are financially stable to pay the credit back in a specific time.

The Credit Card Act, 2009 declared that one should be at least 21 to get a credit card or one should be above 18 and should have the capacity that he/she can make the payments back. This is because the college students were habituated on taking the credit cards and leaving the debts without paying them. Coming to the requirements, there are no particular requirements if you’re starting with a secured credit score. Go to the bank and request a card by guaranteeing the amount you are taking at the institution with something you own. As you use your card, the details will be reported, and you will be building the credit until you pay the significant sum once in a while.
