Corporation Bank Fixed Deposit Rate

What is a fixed deposit?

A fixed deposit is a form of investment that is preferred by many customers as it is a safe form of investment that earns a higher rate of interest than a regular savings account. The money is deposited for a specific time and gets an interest that is then given to the customer. Fixed deposits are offered to customers by many banks and Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs). The tenures on fixed deposits range from 7 days to 10 years or more in some cases. The money deposit for this duration earns an interest and is given back to the customer after the tenure has ended. One is guaranteed to earn returns in a fixed deposit.

You can deposit the needed amount at Corporation Bank’s fixed deposit account for a duration that typically ranges from 7 days to 10 years. The minimum amount that can be deposited in the Corporation Bank account is Rs.100. The bank offers competitive interest rate on fixed deposits. The interest earned on the fixed deposit will attract the TDS as applicable.

Apart from the regular fixed deposit scheme, Corporation Bank provides three different fixed deposit schemes catering to the needs of the customers. One can choose a fixed deposit scheme that is convenient based on personal needs. The three other schemes at Corporation Bank are Money flex deposit, Corp Tax saver plus deposit, 444, 555 and 666 deposits.
