About Federal Bank Savings Account
A savings bank account is an account opened with a bank where you can park your money until you need it, and earn a small interest on the amount. The savings you deposit are freely available for withdrawal as and when you need them. Different banks have different variants of savings accounts.
Because of its flexibility and ease of operation, it is the most common type of account with banks. Banks charge fees for various services provided with savings bank accounts. Features such as minimum required balance, interest rate and number of withdrawals per month vary from bank to bank.
Since the interest on these accounts is not very lucrative, they are used by investors as a stop gap to park their money while they decide upon other more lucrative investment options. These accounts are also used to hold money for day to day expenses and utility payments.
