You need to pay ₹10,000 to block your seat, the same will be adjusted against the overall course fee.

No cost EMI is available on credit cards from all major banks (American Express, Bank of Baroda, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, RBL Bank, Standard Chartered, Axis Bank,Yes Bank) 

If you are availing 0% credit card EMI, Gururo will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions. Your bank may levy GST or other taxes on the interest component of the EMI. 

Certain banks charge nominal processing fees between INR 99 – 500 on 0% Credit Card EMI transaction. If charged will be billed in the first repayment installment. 

You can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. Gururo will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions, this will be purely between you and your bank. 

Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.

Your bank will charge you interest. However this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to Gururo. 

Eg. Amount payable to Gururo: INR 405000 

Lets say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) 

Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850 

[Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate] 

EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000 

effectively , you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000
