When it comes to applying for a credit card, you need a list of documents. Photo proof, address proof, and a number of income-related documents are just some of the paperwork needed when you apply for a card. The documents required for a credit card are compulsory, and failure to submit them can result in your card getting rejected.

Most people today opt for a credit card to conduct everyday transactions. At the end of every month, they receive an outstanding or minimum amount that they have to pay. With the demand of credit cards increasing and with banks increasing the number of credit cards (based on an individual’s requirement), there arises a need to check if the individual applying for a card is eligible for one.

To confirm this eligibility, you need to send out a checklist of documents based on whether you are salaried, self-employed. Some credit cards are custom-made for non-resident Indians, which means those individuals also have to provide a required set of documents.
