      I did a Fixed deposit in ICICI BANK for my kids because I got my salary account and also have opened separate account for my kids and wife on the same bank so its easy to do the payment and linked together. The interest rate is 6.75% moreover the options are very flexible, the locking period is like 1month , 3 months, one year,etc and even the online services are enabled. Whenever I have good amount on the account so go for FD on the selected month, the interest amount will be credited into account.
