    PNB Tax Saver Fixed Deposit Scheme

    Income tax is a crucial aspect in the earnings (salary or profit) of any individual or non-individual. Though it is imperative for earning citizens of India to be paying their due tax per fiscal year, sometimes the income tax seems a bit too taxing for many salaried and low-income groups. Additionally, people might want to have a corpus to help out in case of any financial exigencies and they would want the savings plus additional interest to be provided to them as a lump sum without any excess tax being levied on the same.

    Punjab National Bank (PNB) offers its customers an option to open a fixed deposit account that allows them to benefit from preferential interest rates and also saves the investment thus made from incurring any extra taxation at the time of its maturity. This specific scheme is known as PNB Tax Saver Fixed Deposit.
