Important Notes

Premature closure of Term Deposit:

Fixed deposits, with a premature withdrawal facility, allow the depositor to close the FD before the date of maturity arrives. This comes as a relief in times of cash crunch. However, a certain amount may be required to be paid by the depositor as a penalty to the bank.

Suppose a customer has invested in an FD of Rs. 30000 at a rate of 7% for 2 years. Let us also assume that the interest rate for 1 year is 6.5%. She withdraws the FD after completing 1 year. In one year, he has earned interest @ 7%. But now, the bank shall recalculate the interest at revised FD rates, i.e. 6.5% - 1%= 5.5%. The new rate will be 5.5% and interest shall be paid at this rate instead of the previous 7%.

  • Senior Citizen (i.e. having age of 60 years or more) will continue to get benefit of 0.50% higher interest rate on Deposits. However, Deposits placed by Senior Citizen under section 80 C of Income Tax Act.
