      0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
      I have a Recurring deposit plan from the Bank of Maharashtra with the interest rate of 8.75%. The lock in period i took was for 5 years. There is no extra charges in case we break the tenure in between. Not satisfied with the customer service and response of the bank because there is no follow ups it would be good if they improve their service
