Final Opinion:

Syndicate Bank Gold Credit Card is a Basic credit card for beginners because it comes with zero annual and joining fees and a very low interest rate. This card is not very good for earning benefits. But as said before, if you want to build up a credit score or you want to improve your credit score this card can be very helpful for you.   

But if you want to spend some more to earn benefits like Cash-Back, fuel surcharge waiver, or travel benefits then you can go for Kotak Mahindra Delight Platinum Credit Card for Cash-Back benefits, and if you want to earn benefits on fuel purchase then you can go for BPCL SBI Card, and if you want a travel credit card then you can go for RBL World Safari Credit Card.
