      Rate of interest on fixed deposit is much higher in Bank of Baroda than other nationalized banks. More than that it is compounding and it accumulates yearly once. Penalty charge is of 1%, suppose customers want to break the policy in middle of the availed tenure period.

      Interest rate offered by Bank of Baroda for the fixed deposit plan is 10% and the minimum lock in period is for 3 months . There is no any activation charges and also no penalty in case we break the plan in between the tenure. The only thing is that we cant do any bargain in terms of the interest rate were as we can do with other banks. After the maturity the amount will be credited to the account automatically.
