Final Opinion:

For a beginner, this card is very helpful, it offers 2 PAYBACK points on the domestic transaction, 2 free lounge access per quarter, two golf rounds in a month, etc. so if you are a beginner then this card can be an option for you. 

But there are some major drawbacks with this card, that put a black mark on it. First of all the joining and annual fee of this card is way too high and the benefits of this card cannot justify it. Secondly, the lounge and golf benefits offered by this card come with a catch, you have to spend a decent amount with your card to be eligible for them. 

To conclude it can be said that this card is not worth taking you have to pay way more than you get from it. Instead, if you want a credit card against a fixed deposit, you can go for the Axis Bank Insta Easy Credit Card or Kotak Aqua Gold Credit Card, or if you don’t want a credit card against a fixed deposit, you can go for the ICICI Amazon Pay Credit Card.
