    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    1. Are all 5-year tenure FDs also tax-saver FDs?

      No, banks offer a separate type of FD called tax-saver FDs which have benefits of tax exemption under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. However, these tax-saver FDs also come with a lock-in period and a maximum tenure of 5 years, which means there is no facility for premature withdrawal. However, if you book a normal fixed deposit for up to 5 years, and not under the tax-saver FD scheme, premature withdrawal is allowed subject to a penalty which varies from bank to bank.

    2. Can I invest more than Rs.1.5 lakh in 5-year fixed deposits?

      Yes, you can invest more than Rs.1.5 lakh in normal 5-year fixed deposits. The maximum limit of Rs.1.5 lakh is only for tax-saver FDs which also have a 5-year tenure which is also a lock-in period.

    3. Is nomination facility available for 5-year fixed deposits?

      While this depends on the bank, most do offer nomination facility for all 5-year tenure fixed deposit accounts.
