HDFC Bank Diners Club Black has been devalued quite a bit in the last few years. But it is still a good premium credit card that can offer up to 16% return on your spending. If you have been holding off on the DCB due to its annual fee, there is a way to get it as a Lifetime Free card. If you are an alumnus of a select list of institutes, you are eligible for an LTF DCB. Here is everything you need to know about the LTF Diners Club Alumni upgrade program.
List of Institutes for Lifetime Free Diners Club Black
The list contains most of the premier institutes for MBA, Engineering, and Medical. As of now, there are 129 institutes on this list including IIMs, IITs, and some of the other premier names. You can check the list of institutes at this link. The list keeps getting updated, so it may not have some recent changes.
**CardMaven.in does not have ownership of this list. It is just to give you a reference of which institutes may be eligible. The final decision is with HDFC Bank.
We can upgrade based on either the existing limit on your HDFC Bank credit card or based on income.
- Income: Net monthly income > Rs 1.75 Lakhs for salaried and ITR> Rs 21 Lakhs for self-employed
- Existing Limit: More than Rs 5 Lakhs
