Allahabad Bank FD: Is it the best way to save?

Whenever there are excess funds involved people often think of investing in fixed deposit schemes. Allahabad Bank offers attractive rates over various deposit periods with the flexibility of earning interest monthly, quarterly or at the end of maturity. However, it is advisable to explore saving options apart from fixed deposits which are can earn higher returns.

One such option is investing in mutual funds.  The advantage of investing in mutual funds over fixed deposits primarily is that they are managed by professional fund managers who have a good sense of market trends and make sure you get the highest returns. This mitigates the risk that mutual funds come with to a large extent. The return rates for fixed deposits are fixed for a particular deposit tenure however in the case of mutual funds you can get almost 2x more returns in a positive market.

Allahabad Bank FD: Eligibility Criteria

  • Individuals

  • Municipalities and panchayats
  • Charitable, religious, and educational institutions
  • Associations, societies, clubs etc.

Allahabad Bank: Premature Withdrawal

Allahabad bank does not generally allow premature withdrawal of money before the end of tenure. The bank does not charge a penalty on the withdrawal of a unit if the deposit remains with the bank for a period of less than 15 days. However, in case you need to prematurely withdraw funds after 15 days, the applicable penalty amount will be levied.

Tax benefits on Allahabad bank fixed deposit

For the purpose of tax saving, Allahabad bank offers a term deposit scheme for “ Single holder Type Deposits” and “Joint holder type deposits” with a minimum lock-in period of 5 years. No premature withdrawal is allowed in tax saving deposits and the applicable rate of interest is 8.75% per annum. Individuals, minors, and HUFs are eligible for this. You can go for this fixed deposit scheme to avail tax benefits under section 80C of the Income Tax Act,1961.

However it is important to note here that in the case of fixed deposits, the tax levied is dependent on the tax bracket you fall into, irrespective of FD tenure. If the interest earned on your fixed deposit is more than Rs 10,000, a tax of 10% would be deducted by the bank. TDS certificate will be provided by the bank upon deduction.

Mutual funds have an edge over fixed deposit in this regards as tax payable on mutual funds depends on the category. For example, return on equity funds like  Equity Linked Savings Scheme (ELSS) are tax-free and up to 1.5 lakh can be claimed under section 80C of the Income Tax Act,1961. Also, long term capital gains on equity mutual fund units held for more than 12 months are tax exempt. They offer a higher capital appreciation potential and a smaller lock-in period of 3 years. Hence we can say investing in Mutual funds is a viable tax saving option.
