      I deposited 50K as an FD in Central Bank of India. I haven't withdrawn the deposit and they provides annual interest for the FD. It was easy to start the FD and they also gave me a credit card based on the fixed deposit. Overall it has been a easy process opening FD with the Central Bank of India.

      I had this Fixed Deposit with Central Bank and they gave me 9% Interest over my investment and I took the Deposit for 3 years. Eventually I got good returns with them. Unfortunately, now they have reduced the interest rate to 6-6.5%. Another good thing about the FD was that I was able to take money before maturity period also.

      I deposited Fixed Deposit in two Banks some 3 years back and this is one of those two. Their Fixed Deposit account is pretty good and does the job fantastically. The rate of interest 6.5% is a little less compared to market standard, but then again the risk factors in this Bank are literally zero.

      Saving account is there at Central Bank of India so I preferred for fixed deposit. I believe the rate for deposit is 7.5% to 8%. On my convenient time I can close the deposit and definitely the bank will deduct some penalty for it. Nationalized banks will be better for deposits.

      I have a fixed deposit running in central bank of India. I have taken this for my child. It was easy to start a FD with them. The total maturity period is 3 years and I have completed 2 years. The rate of interest they are offering is less. Once if the FD is matured it cannot be continued, it must be broke and we have to again apply for a different one. It is a drawback. Apart from that everything is good.

There is no penalty in case if we take the amount in between the lock in period. To withdraw the amount we have to visit the bank and sunder the bond.

Very Worst Service Never go for any work to this bank Thanks.

      I am holding a fixed deposit with Central bank. They provide 1% high interest rate for the staff and for senior citizen it is 0.5%. As a staff we hardly take 5 minutes to open the account and provide the receipt it is that simple. Incase if the customer does not hold an account with us we ask for voters id incase if dont have an account we provide first 20k through cash and the rest would be transferred to savings account.
