Among the leading card issuers, HDFC Bank's credit card usage reached Rs 43,471.29 crore in March, marking an increase of 8.57% compared to Rs 40,288.51 crore in February.

Axis Bank recorded an 8.05% growth in transactions, reaching Rs 18,941.31 crore in March compared to Rs 17,528.97 crore in February. On the other hand, spending on ICICI Bank's credit cards increased by 14.49% to Rs 30,733.11 crore in March from Rs 26,843.03 crore in February.
