Final Opinion:

This card is specially designed to be used in India. It comes free of cost. This card is best for those who want free credit cards, it offers reward points on every transaction, EMI option, add-on facility, easy cash withdrawal facility, revolving credit facility, etc. 

Although this card comes free of cost and offers some exclusive features it lacks some benefits like lounge access, free movie tickets, and benefits on shopping, which you can get from other free credit cards available in the Indian Market. 

So I would never recommend you this card, instead, you can go for Kotak Mahindra Wealth Management Infinite Credit Card or HSBC Premier MasterCard Credit Card. Both cards come free of cost and offer several attractive benefits.
