    Certificate of Deposit

    India introduced Certificates of Deposit (CDs) in 1989 to increase the range of money market instruments in the country and thereby give investors greater flexibility in terms of utilization of their short-term funds.

    What is a Certificate of Deposit?

    A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a money market instrument which is issued in a dematerialised form against funds deposited in a bank for a specific period. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) issues guidelines for Certificate of Deposit from time to time.

    Eligibility for Certificate of Deposit:

    Certificates of Deposit are issued by scheduled commercial banks and select financial institutions in India as allowed by RBI within a limit. Certificates of Deposits are issued to individuals, companies, corporations and funds among others. Certificates of Deposits can also be issued to Non-Resident Indians but on a non-repatriable basis only. It is important to note that banks and financial institutions cannot provide loans against Certificates of Deposits. Also, banks cannot buy their own Certificates of Deposits prior to the latter’s maturity. However, the aforementioned norms may be relaxed by the RBI for a specific period of time. It is important to note that banks have to maintain the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) and cash reserve ratio (CRR) on the price of a Certificate of Deposit.

    Format of Certificates of Deposit

    Banks and financial institutions should issue a Certificate of Deposit in a dematerialised form only. However, investors can seek a certificate in physical form as well as per Depositories Act, 1996. In case an investor seeks a certificate in a physical form, a bank informs the Financial Markets Department, Reserve Bank of India, Mumbai. Also, a Certificate of Deposit entails stamp duty charges as well. Given that Certificates of Deposits are transferable in a physical form, banks should ensure that they are issued on good quality paper. A Certificate of Deposit has to be signed by two or more signatories (authorized).

    Minimum size and maturity of a Certificate of Deposit

    A certificate of deposit can only be issued for a minimum of Rs.1 lakh by a single issuer and in multiples of Rs.1 lakh. The maturity of a certificate of deposit depends on the investor. For instance, for a certificate of deposit issued by banks, the maturity period is not less than 7 days and not above one year while for financial institutions, a certificate of deposit should not be issued for less than 1 year and not above three years.

    Transferability

    A certificate of deposit which is not held in an electronic form can be transferred by endorsement and delivery. However, a certificate of deposit held in a demat form is transferred according to guidelines followed by demat securities.

    Discount

    A certificate of deposit can be issued at a discount on its face value. Furthermore, banks and financial institutions can issue certificates of deposits on a floating rate basis. However, the method of calculating the floating rate should be market-based.

    Reporting

    Banks’ fortnightly return should include certificates of deposits as per Section 42 of the RBI Act, 1934. Furthermore, banks and financial institutions should also report about certificates of deposits under the Online Returns Filing System (ORFS).

    • ICICI Bank Fixed Deposit
      "Great banking service"
      0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
      Totally I have 3 Fixed Deposit accounts with ICICI Bank. I am surprised where I can close my account by using online service. The interest rate was almost same like other public sector banks. No tax benefits, which are regular once here. I got a bonus points and very much happy with ICICI Service.

      As I have a savings account with State Bank of India I started a fixed deposit account with them. But I'm really not sure about the interest rates they provide me but it's good for both my FD accounts in this State bank of India as well as the other bank IOC.

      I am using Axis FD service for last 15 years. The amount differs for a fixed deposit. The interest rate was vey high than other nationalized banks. They providing more benefits to the customers. There is no issues with Axis and am completely satisfied with the service. The most interesting feature is they auto renew the policy or they pay extra charges for late 15 days.

      "Average account to use"
      0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
      The rate of interest which I got from SBI Fixed deposit was good and I got the amount on time. The rate of interest was 9% when I got the fixed deposit from State bank at present it got reduced because the RBI new Scheme. The customer support need to be improved with SBI. I would say it is trusty worthy to have an FD account with SBI.

      SBI Fixed Deposit is the first thing that I would look out for, we can book the FD online, I even get the FD bond online it is created automatically too . They provide the best rate in the industry . Further more , we get the options to change the maturity instructions online too. Not sure about the tax benefit. When I placed a request for liquidation, I got my funds back immediately and this FD was opened a couple of years back.

      Liquidation is quite interesting with SBI because as soon as i placed a request for breaking my FD, in the next 2 minutes funds were sent to my account on time and it was simple too. Online I had a placed for the BREAKNG FD and foreclosure charges were very meager as they hardly charged rs 150 as the charge.

      HDFC Fixed Deposit is good, as every one can invest in FD the interest rate at that time was 6.5% for a short tenure. I am pretty sure for the long tenure they will provide tax benefits. I had placed a request for this FD through online through my account i can view my maturity information online. I remember placing a request for change of nominee online once.
