    CENT Suraksha Deposit scheme is a fixed deposit scheme offered by Central Bank of India.

    It is a deposit scheme with an insurance incentive. The said scheme offers several special features under two variants, namely, CENT Suraksha Deposit (PMSBY- RS.177) and CENT Suraksha Deposit yojana (PMJJBY- Rs.4317). CENT Suraksha Deposit will facilitate payment of premium towards Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY) while CENT Suraksha Deposit yojana will facilitate payment of premium for both Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY). For instance, a giftee can deposit for Rs.201 or Rs.5001 in his or her savings account. (Rs.177 or Rs.4317 is transferred to Suraksha deposit scheme or Suraksha deposit yojana). In other words,

    Rs.201 is used for premium in the first and second year of Suraksha Bima Yojana while the rest is used for term deposit. The annual income earned is used for PMSBY premium. It is important to note that Aadhaar is an important proof for KYC. This scheme was launched for the festival of Raksha Bandhan when gift cheques (of pre-fixed denomination) are commonly exchanged. A giftee can present the gift instrument to the bank and deposit it in her bank account. The bank will deposit the cheque in giftee’s saving account or open a BSBDA account, if required.

      I am having the fixed deposit account with the Central bank of India. Interest rate was around 7.75% and it will be compounded for every quarter of the year. The minimum lock in period is nil with them. Customer service is best with them and online banking facilities too.

      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.

      0.5 1.0/5 "Really Bad"
      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.

      I have taken a Fixed deposit plan from Central bank of India in which the interest rate offered is 8.3% the minimum lock in period is for 1 year. 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. Customer service is not do good as the private banks. To activate the plan we have to deposit Rs.20,000 .

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.

      I took fixed deposit from Central Bank of India two years ago and they are giving very good benefits for FD holders but not I could not recall all the things. The rate of interest is around 9.2% so it is reasonable and good in customer service. For tenure of five years I opened FD and they are giving good offers.

      I am holding a FD account with Central Bank of India which offers an interest rate of 9% for one year. If I had plan of closing that, they would deduct 1% interest and then calculate interest and credit that amount back to my account. The only document required for opening this account is pan card and nothing much and overall its been great.

      Two years ago I have opened a fixed deposit with Central Bank and I am still maintaining them. It was very easy for me to create a new FD by submitting very minimal documents and I feel comfortable transferring the funds online. Rate of interest is quite good compared to other banks however the customer service needs improvement.
