This comes after Axis Bank, ICICI Bank and Yes Bank also reduced their respective card benefits. Following the changes, which will be effective from May 1, IDFC First Bank has cut reward points on online spending, put higher spending-based criteria for airport lounge access and updated terms for utility and rent payments.

IDFC First Bank will levy a surcharge of 1 per cent plus GST for aggregate of utility bill payments made with a credit card which cross 20,000. If utility bills are below this, it will not attract a surcharge but bills above the mark will have a fee of 1 per cent plus GST. The utility surcharge is not applicable on FIRST Private Credit Card, LIC Classic Credit Card, and LIC Select Credit Card.

On IDFC First Select Credit Cards, the number of free domestic airport lounge visits has been reduced from four each quarter to two while First Wealth Credit Cards will be able to access both domestic and international airport lounges twice per quarter, also down from four visits.

The bank has hiked charges for rental transactions to 249 per transaction or 1 per cent plus 18 per cent GST, whichever is higher.
