The Manhattan Platinum Credit Card give cashback of 5% on groceries, departmental stores and supermarkets and 0.5% effective rewards on all other spends.

Overall, you can earn a net reward yield of 0.9-1.2% on spends above ₹10,000, making this an average card. However Standard Chartered offers many credit cards that give you higher rewards than the Manhattan.

The Ultimate Credit Card is the best credit card in India by Standard Chartered Bank for most people. It offers a net reward yield of 2.3-3.0% on all your spend.

However the Ultimate has a high annual fee of ₹5,000, although you get reward points worth ₹5,000 in return.

If you are not comfortable paying the high fee in exchange for reward points, you could consider the Standard Chartered DigiSmart Credit Card for monthly spends below ₹50,000. This card has a low monthly fee of ₹49, which is waived when you spend more than ₹5,000 in any month.

You can earn a net reward yield of 1.3-1.6% with the DigiSmart Credit Card.

Our list of the best credit cards in India, at every spending level and from every bank, is here. You can find a detailed discussion of our methodology here.
