• How to Close BOI FD

    If you hold a bank account with the Bank of India (BoI), then you can consider opening a fixed deposit account with the lender. FDs are considered to be brilliant investment tools and are considered to be of low risk. You can deposit a certain amount of money for a certain tenure and finally withdraw it to meet your expenses.

    However, you may have to close your FD account in case your account reaches maturity, or if you are facing a cash crunch.

    We will list down the steps you will have to follow in order to close your BOI FD account.

    Closing your BOI Fixed Deposit account on maturity

    • Visit the BoI branch and duly fill the fixed deposit account closure form. Make sure all the details entered by you are correct. After the form has been filled, sign it and then submit it to the branch manager.
    • You will also have to enclose all the Know Your Documents (KYC) to the lender along with the account closure form. The KYC documents you will have to submit are your address and identity proofs.
    • On opening a fixed deposit at the bank, you will be issued a fixed deposit receipt or certificate which serves as a proof you having opened a fixed deposit account with the bank. The receipt will contain important details such as your deposit amount, tenure, the interest you will earn, etc. You will have to submit this receipt to the bank. The lender will verify the details, and if they are found to be correct, then the maturity amount will be disbursed to your bank account.

    Closing your BoI Fixed Deposit account before maturity

    The process to close your FD account prematurely will be similar to the one you would have followed if you had to close your FD account on maturity. You will have to fill the FD account closure form and submit it along with the KYC documents and fixed deposit receipt. The only difference will be that the bank is likely to charge you a penalty ranging between 0.5% to 1% of the total deposit amount. However, if you are withdrawing less than Rs.5 lakh after completing one year since the opening of the FD account, no penalty will be charged.
