Karur Vysya Bank Fixed Deposit Rate

What is a fixed deposit?

A fixed deposit is a form of investment that is used by many individuals wherein, one can deposit a certain amount of money for a specific period and earn an interest on the same. Fixed deposits are offered to individuals 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. This is a very beneficial financial tool.

You can deposit your lump sum amount at Karur Vysya Bank’s fixed deposit account for a certain period that typically ranges from 15 days to 10 years. The minimum amount that can be deposited in the Karur Vysya 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. If the interest amount is not claimed by the depositor, it will not be eligible for any further interest.

Apart from the ordinary fixed deposit scheme, Karur Vysya Bank provides two 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 two schemes are KVB Tax-Shield and Rainbow Deposits.

KVB’s fixed deposit scheme provides one with a benefit of getting interest at regular intervals, either every six months or quarterly or monthly. This is beneficial for individuals who rely on a regular interest income. It can be opened by individuals, Trusts, companies, associations and more. The minimum amount that needs to be invested is Rs.100/- and there is no restriction on the maximum amount. The tenure for the deposit ranges from 15 days to 10 years. These deposits are eligible for only simple interest. TDS is applicable on the interest earned.

KVB Tax-Shield

Deposits made under this scheme qualify for tax benefits as per Section 80C of the income tax act up to Rs.1.50 lakhs. This scheme is for a fixed tenure of 5 years. The minimum amount that can be invested is Rs.100/- whereas the maximum amount is Rs.1.50 lakhs only. Premature closure is not allowed and so this deposit is under lock for 5 years. If it is a joint account, then the deduction under Section 80C is applicable only for the first holder of the deposit.

Rainbow deposits

Under this scheme, the customer gets a good mix of the features of a saving bank account and a fixed deposit account that offers high liquidity with maximum returns. After the customer retains a balance of Rs.15,000/- in the savings account, amounts in multiples of Rs.5000/- accumulated over the balance of Rs.15,000/- will be taken to the fixed deposit portion for a period of 91 days on Sundays at the end of the day. It also provides free accident insurance (death) with a coverage of Rs. 1 lakh. Only simple interest at rates applicable on the date of transfer of the amount will be payable.

Interest Rate on Karur Vysya Bank’s Fixed Deposit

The rate of interest paid on a fixed deposit varies according to the amount deposited, period and the issuing bank. Karur Vysya Bank’s interest rates typically ranges from 5% to 7% per annum.

The defining criteria for a fixed deposit is that the money cannot be withdrawn before maturity, unless on payment of a penalty. Once the deposit matures, the bank credits the original amount plus the interest earned to the bank account specified when the FD is opened. The money deposited earns the same fixed rate of interest throughout the entire FD period (except for certain kinds of floating rate deposits).
