Want to own a Lifetime Free Credit Card? Don’t want to pay annual charges on your credit card? This thread will give you all information regarding Lifetime Free Credit Cards in India.

Note: This is an ongoing discussion that is frequently updated. Please keep checking back this post regularly for new updates.

Before we begin: Every credit card has a spend-based target for waiving off the annual charges of the card for the subsequent year. (For example, annual charges waived off on spends above 2L in a year, etc.) For the sake of clarity, we are NOT considering the total spend-based targets offered on each card.
