This card is best for earning reward points only. It offers 2X reward points for offline spends and 5X reward points for every online spend, you can also earn some bonus reward points. These points can also be used to make payments, ticket booking, or mobile recharge. This card also offers a waiver on fuel surcharges. 

So, as a reward credit card, this can be a very good option, but if you are looking for Cash-Back, concierge service, or low/zero annual fee credit card, you will be disappointed.
