    Fixed Deposit BYTES FROM OUR KITCHEN

    Once money has been invested in a fixed deposit, it is pretty much inaccessible to the depositor, unless they go in for a premature withdrawal. But what happens if the need is great but not too big in terms of the amount needed. Would it really make sense to break a big deposit for a few thousand rupees? This is the ideal situation that a MOD, or a Multi Option Deposit, is meant to handle. This deposits is actually linked to a savings account and this helps because in case the depositor issues a cheque for an amount that is not present in the savings account, the balance is withdrawn from the FD and paid. The depositor also gets the option to withdraw amounts in multiples of Rs. 1,000 through ATMs.

    Eligibility Criteria for applying for MODs

    The eligibility criteria for this FD is the same as that for all other FDs. This is a product that is available to all those residing in India, and at times also to non-resident Indians. This deposit may also be available to entities like HUF, companies, organisations and various other groups of people.

      It has been two years when I opened fixed deposit with State bank of India. The period is for five years. Since I completed two years, three years to go. Interest rate is of 11%. Actually SBI is located near to my house so I feel more comfortable in visiting the bank at any instance. All the staffs are very friendly and very cooperative.

      Compared to other banks SBI offering good interest rate on fixed deposit, they offered me 7.95% of interest. I have the amount of Rs. 2.4 lakhs for the tenure of three years. After the maturity period I got the amount around 2.9 lakhs. I am very much fine with that.

      I had invested in fixed deposit with the State bank of India and the interest rate is very less like its around 7.15%, also the returns are also very less, which will be also applicable with the tax. Services provided by them is really not good and I would like to suggest that they need to provide the customer service in a much better way.

      Interest that I earn on my SBI FD is awesome. I am not getting any prefential interest for my profile though I am a defense person The bank is next to my locality that is the benefit. I had been to the branch for opening this account I had produced a cheque for opening this FD. On the same lines, I guess they require a SBI account for opening FD with the said bank.
