U r an existing ICICI Bank customer?

For house wife’s its tough without FD or Bank account etc due to income proofs

Unless u are getting a deal like Apay card for etc, then apply for a separate card.
Else just have her an add-on card.

thanks @vimvim, @ Manitian. Yes, i applied for ICIC Amazon Pay card for her and received with lower limit.
Later, SBI card associate said based on ICICI card, i can apply for SBI simply click card for her. But later it got rejected.
any workaround?

@Loveall
Your wife already had Account with ICICI at the time of applying ICICI Apay card?

No workaround other than getting a fd based simplyclick advantage card.

@suman1520 yes thats correct… seems they have taken the CIBIL score from PAN.

CIBIL score can be generated only if you have an existing credit history, either an existing credit card or loan. Banks have to make sure that the credit card holder has a regular monthly take home income comparable to the credit limit. Amazon pay seems to be issuing credit cards to improve their customer base rather than based on industry norms

You should have applied after one year , you should have waited till 1 year at least?

Open a HDFC bank account and maintain balance for 2 months, then apply for a card without income docs.

Is there any HDFC card without annual charge? How much one should maintain & are you sure HDFC issue credit card by maintaining balance in the account?

There’s no guarantee per se but many including me have got a pre-approved LTF credit card just by having account with HDFC. Anything in range of 25-45k should be adequate as balance.

@BubbleBoyChickenLittle Yes this account is sufficient but I forgot to mention, do lots of transactions using your debit card. Using it for paying bills including credit card bills will help you. There is speculation that HDFC debit card spends help you with your credit card application.

So open account, maintain as high balance as possible like 50k+, do lots of transaction using your debit card for 2 months and apply without income docs.
@Mufasa Use Debit card. My application was rejected twice. Then I opened account, maintained 50k+, Did 150k transaction using debit card and applied in 2 months, approved without income docs. It was not pre-approved.

@vimvim About 2 -3 months with high debit card transactions. It is better if you apply through branch using salary slips. Any reason why it was rejected?
