Andhra bank savings account

A savings account is the most common form of an interest-bearing deposit account which is held with a bank or NBFC and provides a nominal interest rate. A savings account is often the first bank account for many people.

With a savings account, you get easy access to your safely stored cash at any point of time. It is the most liquid form of savings. You can use a savings account to save money for specific or daily expenses. It can also be used to save for a rainy day. Savings accounts helps keep a track of all the transactions made, including deposits and withdrawals.

There are various fees associated with a savings account as well. You need to maintain a particular balance each month to avoid paying penal charges. The minimum balance required, interest rate and fees and charges vary from bank to bank. There is also a limit on the number of withdrawals you can make in a month without attracting charges.

Savings accounts are not lucrative in the sense that they are the least profitable type of short-term investments. The interest on a savings account is far less when compared to that of a Fixed Deposit account. Though they are liquid investments and easily accessible in times of need, they offer low yields in comparison to other forms of savings.
