    Now, Close Your SBI FD Online Easily

    State Bank of India (SBI) customers can easily close their Fixed Deposit (FD) account online before maturity. The bank recently took to social media and even posted a video on Twitter to create awareness about how to preclose an FD online.

    This is applicable to customers holding ETDR/STDR e-term deposits.

    How to Close an SBI FD Online

    • Log on to the website
    • Choose the FD account and then tap ‘close account prematurely’
    • A list of all the FDs you hold with the bank will be displayed. Choose the one you want to close and tap ‘proceed’
    • Confirm details and mention the reason for closing your FD
    • Type in the password that is sent to your registered mobile number and confirm the transaction

    All customers will receive an alert once their FDs are closed and their bank account will be credited with the FD amount. It is advisable to initiate the closure between 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. for immediate closure.

    How to calculate SBI fixed deposit interest rate

    Before making a decision to invest in an FD, it is always wise to calculate the maturity value that you will get. To compute this amount, there are various factors that need to be considered. First, let us take a look at the various factors influencing maturity amount.

    Factors affecting maturity amount:

    • The amount/principal invested
    • Rate of interest
    • Tenure of deposit
    • Interest computation frequency
    • Taxation

    SBI FD Calculator

    An FD calculator is used to calculate the total maturity amount by feeding in the required data. To calculate the total amount due to the customer after the completion of the deposit tenure, the data required is the principal amount, rate of interest, compounding frequency and the time period for which the deposit is held.

    For example, if an investment of Rs.1 lakh is made for 1 year at the rate of 6.25% p.a., the maturity value will approximately add up to 1,06,250. Here the total interest earned on the principal will be Rs.6,250 p.a. The interest has been compounded annually.

    On the other hand, if the interest is computed on a quarterly basis for the same principal, rate of interest and tenure, the total interest earned will be Rs.6,398 and the maturity value will be 1,06,398.

    Also, please note that if you go for a cumulative FD, the maturity amount and interest will be paid at the end of the tenure. However, in case of a non-cumulative FD, the interest is paid at regular periods of time, say monthly, quarterly or half-yearly.
