      Indian bank is a nationalized bank and easy to access but visiting the branch is very difficult as their services are not systematic. If we go the branch we need to stand in a queue to get things done. Also the net banking is not categorized. For my Fixed Deposit the rate of interest is 8.65% and it is of simple rate.

      I did the fixed deposit manually at Indian Bank Sukrawarpet Coimbatore branch. Being a Government bank the customer service is pathetic. The interest rate is reduced from 8.75 to 8.5. To save the tax provide the PAN card number. The procedure to apply the fixed deposit manually is simple. Go to the branch, get the fixed deposit form. Fill the form. Handover to the bank employee. The money will be deducted from your bank account. After the money is deducted, the bank employee will handover a fixed deposit certificate to you. After the maturity, go back to the bank with the fixed deposit certificate, to get back the cash. The cash will be deposited in your bank account.

      Last one year I am maintaining a fixed deposit with Indian bank. It was very easy for me to create the FD because I am a member of the bank. It is a government bank and I don't have any problem. Employees of the bank keep changing frequently however their policies and procedure never change. I have an experience of taking a educational loan in the past which was a great experience. They have given the rate of interest as per RBI guidelines however they don't charge any pre-closure charges and processing fees for loans.
