Credit limit is the maximum amount you are allowed to spend each month, using your credit card. You have a credit limit of INR 1 Lakh a month. You spend INR 80,000 a month, swiping your credit card. Your credit utilization is 80%. If your credit utilization is high, banks view you as credit hungry. This affects your credit score.
