MUSCAT – Meethaq, the Islamic banking from Bank Muscat, has announced the availability of the Easy Payment Plan (EPP) for its credit cardholders. The EPP scheme is particularly useful for parents who are planning to buy electronic devices like computers, tablets and laptops so that their children can attend online classes.
The special scheme for purchase of educational devices is offered under the guidance of the Ministry of Education and enables Meethaq Credit Cardholders to buy suitable devices through the Shari’a-compliant plan. They can repay the amount in monthly installments conveniently over a period of 12 months and at 0% profit rate. Each time a purchase is made through EPP, the available limit in the credit card account will be reduced by an amount equal in value to the purchase. However, with every monthly payment, the available balance will increase by that amount. The scheme is available through participating merchants, which include some of the biggest electronics retailers in the country. Customers are not required to provide any additional documents and the scheme ensures affordability for educational devices which are needed for online classes.
