    What is a Flexi Fixed Deposit?

    A flexi fixed deposit, as the name suggests is a fixed deposit which offers flexibility and convenience to customers. It is traditionally a combination of a fixed deposit and a recurring/savings account, ensuring customers get the benefit of high interest rates offered by Fixed Deposits plus liquidity offered by saving accounts.

    Features and Benefits of Flexible FD

    Flexi Fixed Deposits offer a host of features and benefits to account holders, some of which are mentioned below.

    • Attractive interest – Flexi Fixed Deposits earn higher interests compared to Savings Accounts, enabling one to earn more through their money.
    • Flexible tenures – Different banks have different tenures for the flexi deposit schemes, ensuring one finds a tenure which best suits his/her financial needs.
    • Investment amount – Individuals can choose the amount they intend to deposit, with different banks allowing different amounts as deposits.
    • Premature withdrawal – Most banks allow premature withdrawals from flexi fixed deposit accounts, subject to individual policies in place.
    • Loan facility – Account holders can generally avail loans against flexi fixed deposits, subject to policies implemented by banks.

    How Flexi Fixed Deposits differ from Normal Fixed Deposits

    Flexi Fixed Deposits offer certain benefits over normal fixed deposits, primarily due to the flexibility and liquidity they offer. In a normal fixed deposit, individuals generally deposit a certain sum of money for a particular period of time, with this amount earning fixed interest. Withdrawing this amount before maturity is generally not permitted, which can be a problem in emergencies. Flexi Fixed Deposits overcome this problem by allowing account holders to withdraw certain sums of money, which could be from their savings/current account, which is generally merged with a fixed deposit in flexi FDs.
