Axis Bank — misleading to sell credit cards

1 Review
 Agarwal Pulkit on Nov 5, 2019
Around august 15, i received a call from the bank regarding the offer i had on my zone credit card stating that the card could be availed by me at that time free for lifetime and so i applied through their app. After a few days i received the call that due to some problem in documentation, either an executive from bank will visit me or i can visit the bank for document verification. At that time i asked that if i do so then will the card be availed under that offer or not and i was given the response that it will be under lifetime free offer and so i went to the bank for documentation but after that i received a message that there will be charges for the card. After a few days from the documentation process when i receive the call that my card has been approved, i was told again that the card is chargeable. I mean what rubbish is this. I asked to clarify the same and i was told that i would be called again regarding this matter but got no response. I asked for the status on live chat and i was told that the application has been declined but on august 31, 2019, i received the message that card is approved and that too is chargeable and will receive the card in a few days.
This is shear misleading of customers by their employees to sell the products and earn money.
The axis bank also sent a message on my previous complaint stating that they tried to call me on september 17 but there was actually no call received or missed on that day. I had registered the complaint earlier as well but there has been no response from many days. For this reason, i am registering this complaint again.

I received a call from Axis Bank today at around 1pm, not regarding the credit card issue but for some discount card offers with the My Zone credit card issued to me.

It is now November 26. There has been no resolution from Axis Bank regarding the issue nor have they contacted me by any mode for the same. The only call received was on November 19 regarding some offers with the card, nothing else. The charges have increased fron Rs.590 to nearly Rs.1400 as I am not paying any charges to them.
I request the consumer complaints team to look into the matter so that a proper resolution can be received. You are the biggest hope for me now.
