This is a regular RD account where the minimum monthly instalment is Rs.100 and in the multiples of Rs.100 thereafter. There is no maximum limit on the monthly deposit amount. The tenure can range from six months up to 120 months in the multiples of one month. An attractive interest rate will be designated based on the tenure of the account.
This account is dedicated to government institutions, private institutions, PSUs, corporate bodies and others. The account shall be opened in the name of the institution as well as the employees. The minimum deposit amount is Rs.10, according to the PF deduction of the employees. The tenure can be between 6 months and 120 months.
This account can only be opened by internet banking users who have savings or current accounts. The interest rates and nomination policy remains the same as that of a regular RD account. You can open an e-RD account only if you have linked a valid PAN to the account. The nominee for the e-RD account will remain the same as that of the savings/current account.
If the interest earned on your fixed deposit is more than Rs 40,000 during the financial year, the bank deducts tax at source at 10%. This rate has been reduced to 7.5% due to COVID-19 pandemic from May 2020 to March 2021. Further, the tax levied on the returns is dependent on the tax bracket you fall into irrespective of the interest rate or other factors.
Our RD calculator allows you to estimate the returns you can expect, by investing in RD over a specific period, free-of-charge.
If you happen to miss the instalment payments for some time, but you make it before the maturity date, a penalty will be charged at Re.1 for every Rs.100 per month. Not depositing instalments until the date of maturity will lead to the bank paying the interest on a daily product basis compounded half-yearly. This policy does not apply to the PNB Special RD Product.
The interest will only be paid out upon maturity. Monthly interest disbursal facility is not currently available.
While opening the account under PNB Special RD scheme, the institution must open the account with a minimum of 10 employees or 75% of the eligible employees, whichever is lower.
The interest applicable to this account is the same as the card rates applicable to term deposits below Rs.1 crore. Interest will be calculated on the daily product basis and credited to the account on a half-yearly basis, i.e. in March and September of every year.
