News About United Bank of India Recurring Deposit Interest Rates

  • United Bank of India, UCO Bank and Bandhan Bank Slash Deposit Rates

    In light of the demonetization drive, several banks have slashed their interest rates. The lead in this was taken by SBI and other banks like Bandhan Bank, UCO Bank and United Bank of India have followed soon after.

    With effect from Monday, Bandhan Bank cut its deposit interest rates by 25 basis points , bringing the new rate down to 8% that is being for a tenure of under a year and an amount under Rs 1 crore. C S Ghosh, MD and CEO of Bandhan Bank mentioned that the large volume of deposits following the government’s announcement of the demonetization drive has been the major reason behind the rate cut.

    UCO Bank , another leading public sector lender also cut its deposit interest rates by 75-100 basis points. Bank officials said that since the beginning of demonetization, the bank has received nearly Rs 18000 crore in deposits, out of which withdrawals accounted for only about Rs 5,000 crore. Mr. R K Takkar, chairman and managing director of UCO Bank said due to the high incremental cash reserve ratio which will become an added cost, the bank might not be able to pass on the benefit of the rate cut to its customers.

    Another bank to bring down its interest rate is United Bank of India (UBI) which, effective from Nov 18, reduced its interest rates by 25 to 100 basis points for term deposits.

    "Entirely good..."
    0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
    Four years ago I opened the recurring deposit for the amount of six thousand. There are not hidden charges I got very good interest rate when that is 9.35%. While pre closing the deposit, the United Bank of India had paid entire amount. On and all in half an hour I got the amount post closing the deposit.

    "Very good "
    0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
    I have been banking with United Bank of India for over 10 years and it is the best Bank that I have never banked in terms of RD. The interest rate offered by them was higher . Actually I was suggested to take RD with United Bank. I also hold a salary account with them. Every month the amount would be taken from my account.

    "Its fine"
    0.5 2.0/5 "Expected more"
    I am holding a UBI Recurring Deposit account the rate of interest offered by them was 8.5% . Its an ongoing one. I have taken that only for a period of 10 years as I was not allowed to take it for a period of 15 years as the maximum tenure available with them is only 10 years . Other Banks are offering it for a period of 15 years. No additional documents required I have received the FD certificate for the same.
