SSP allows you to add your savings to the account at your convenience. Start saving a fixed amount every month from Rs.100 up to Rs.2 crore per month. The monthly instalments will be deducted from your savings account automatically upon your consent. Choose the tenure for the account based on your financial goals. You can open this account to realise the pre-planned future goals.
This scheme offers features and benefits similar to that of the SSP scheme. Also, you get protection against the principal and interest earned, complimentary personal accident insurance cover of up to Rs.5 lakh, and one-time redeemable reward points, i.e. up to 1,000 points. The minimum monthly instalment is Rs.5,000, and minimum tenure is three years in this case.
The limit on the interest income earned for regular customers is Rs.40,000 per financial year and is Rs.50,000 per financial year for senior citizens. Income tax will be deducted at source (TDS) by the bank if the interest earned on the FD and RD accounts across all the bank branches per financial year exceeds this limit. Note that TDS will be applicable at 10%.
TDS is now reduced from 10% to 7.5% due to the pandemic, effective from May 2020 until March 2021. You can submit Form 15G or Form 15H, as applicable, to request the bank not to deduct tax at source only if your annual income is within the basic exemption limit.
