According to SBI Card rejection of a credit card application can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
Non-availability of necessary data/documents: If you fail to submit necessary document
Credit Score Issues: If your credit score is less, there are less chances that your credit card will be approved. Higher the credit score the better are the chances.
Low-income: If your income is lower than bank expectations, there are chances that your credit card could be rejected due to your low income
Eligibility based on age: If you are below the age of 21 then it is highly unlikely that your credit card will be approved.
