      I put a decent amount of my Money into Fixed Deposit and PNB looked to be a perfect fit for that. I got Interest return of 7%, which I feel is quite good compared to the Market standards. The best thing about this Investment is that I can take the whole amount out of the FD any time I want even before maturity.

      When i opened the fixed deposit account the amount was taken from the saving so they told that there is no need of any receipt and another account number.But after seven months when i applied to break the deposit they were asking for th receipt and account number by which i am not able to break it. In the initial stage they told that for 10,000 will get 18,000 after a year but later they informed will get Rs.10,850. They are not transparent to the customer.

      I opened an Fixed Deposit account with PNB because it is reliable to the customers. There is no need to open an savings account with them for doing any kind of investments. But if its any private bank we have to open an account as well as need to maintain some minimum balance. 9% is the rate of interest they are offering to me.

      As my account is with Punjab National bank since last 4 years so I opened the fixed deposit account in the same bank. Interest rate is getting transferred to my account once in year. There in a possibility to withdraw the amount in midst of the tenure as they are not going to charge anything as penalty. I would say, the interest rate as less comparing to other banks.But since it is linked with my saving account it is best for me.
