Different Types of RBL Bank FD Schemes

    The scheme allows you to earn attractive returns when you deposit a lump sum for a minimum period of seven days. The maximum tenure allowed under the scheme is 20 years. The scheme offers partial/premature withdrawal on your deposit.

  2. Senior Citizen Fixed Deposit:

    This scheme is dedicated to senior citizens, i.e. individuals aged 60 years and above. You can get an additional 0.5% interest rate over and above the interest rate applicable to the regular scheme. Most other features of the scheme remain the same as the ones of Regular FD scheme.

  3. Flexi Sure Fixed Deposit:

    A savings/current account will be linked to the FD account opened under this scheme. You can enjoy good returns along with a high liquidity factor under the scheme.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are there any feature-wise differences when I open an FD account online and offline

Yes, there may be a slight feature-wise difference when you open an FD account online versus when you open it offline. For example, consider the case of a Regular Fixed Deposit scheme. In this case, the maximum tenure available via offline method is 20 years, while the maximum tenure via the online method is 10 years. Please check with your nearest branch for more details.

Can I open an FD account even if I do not have a PAN?

You can open an FD account without providing PAN. In this case, the TDS applicable, if any, will be 20% in the place of 10% with PAN.

How does the bank decide if simple interest applies to an FD account or compound interest?

If the deposit tenure you have chosen is within 181 days, then simple interest will be applied. For tenures starting from 181 days, i.e. above six months, compound interest will be applied.

Is there a penalty on premature withdrawal? Is it applicable to all account holders?

A penalty of 1% will be applied while calculating the interest component in the event of premature withdrawal. However, there is an exemption to senior citizens. The penalty of 1% will not be applied when senior citizens make an early withdrawal.
