      I had opened my Fixed deposit account from IOB during the year 2012. IOB offered me an interest of 9% for my FD account. Now RBI reduced the interest rate, But still I am enjoying my existing interest rate for FD account. I have the tenure of 5 Years , I will be getting the maturity amount of Rs. 2.74 Lakhs. I am happy with IOB FD and it is very much recommendable.

      Am happy with the Indian overseas bank for the fixed deposit account. I have found any issues with them till now but they have to improvise on their customer service, also most of the nationalized banks are playing the same role. Interest is not at all the constraint because every bank is paying the same, so there are no issues. I wish to suggest that they should be very keen to provide customer service.

      Fixed account is good for tax benefit. We will get much interest in IOB which is 10%. Only thing is lock in period and no withdrawal option also. I was maintained for the past 10 years and I closed it. I would recommend this bank to others for fixed account.

      It is not that easy to liquidate the funds when it comes to IOB FD. As I have to visit the branch in person if I have to close the deposit. Where as when it comes to other Banks we can place a request online or through the phone banking and the FD can be closed. Interest rate offered by IOB was 7.5%.

      For staff Indian Overseas bank is offering one percentage extra. When I opened this Fixed deposit they offered 9.5% of interest plus one percentage extra but at present they reduced to 8.75%. For pre mature closure they are going to charge but at present there is no pre mature charge. Other banks are also providing good rate of interest however I do like recommend Indian Overseas bank. Loan facilities against Fixed deposit is available. Both demand loan facility and cash credit facilities are available. Through Internet banking we can open Fixed deposit.

      Only drawback in Indian Overseas bank in terms of fixed deposit is mode of communication. I don't get regular updates about the fixed deposit which needs to be considered. Interest rate is 9% which is quite comparable. As the bank is nearby, I did chose this bank for fixed deposit.

      I am holding IOB Fixed Deposit, for more than 2 years now. I like the benefits what they provide, there is no penalty, anytime we can withdraw the funds there is no charges if its more than 1 year. IOB, being a Nationalized Bank does not provide good customer service, it has to be more responsive.

      Most of my FD's are with IOB since 1987. I & my whole family have an account with them for about 20 years & above. My only reason for my convenience is the building that I live has an IOB branch in the ground floor. I think the rate of interest was somewhere around 8%. Their IT infrastructure is poor and I had to visit the branch at least once in a month.

      Three years ago I have started a fixed deposit with IOB. I had to deposit rs25000 three time. Mainly for the tax purpose I have created this fixed deposit. No documentation required for creating the FD because I am holding a salary account with them. Rate of interest was very good around 9.5% for five years. At the time of maturity the interest earned is exempted under tax benefits.
