List of fixed deposit rates across all banks in India
A fixed deposit, popularly known as an FD and also called Term Deposit is an investment instrument that allows investors to deposit a lump sum amount for a fixed term and earn an interest on their investment. FD is a popular investment choice because of its low volatility and flexibility.
You can open a Kotak Mahindra Bank Fixed Deposit account by depositing an amount as low as Rs. 1000. There is no upper limit for amount of deposit. Terms range from 7 days to 10 years and interest varies from time to time and bank to bank.
Apart from the regular run of the fixed deposit scheme, Kotak Mahindra Bank offers some variants or specialized deposit schemes that offer slightly different terms for the convenience of the investor.
About Kotak Mahindra Bank Fixed Deposit Rate
Kotak Mahindra Bank Tax Saving Fixed Deposit offers the investor the facility to earn a good return on interest as well as save tax. The minimum amount of deposit required is Rs. 100 and investors can invest up to 1,50,000 for the purpose of saving tax. Interest on any amount over this will be taxable. The main feature so the scheme include -
1. Both quarterly pay-outs and reinvestment options are available.
2. An amount of up to 1,50,000 can be claimed as deduction under section 80C of the income tax act.
3. The minimum investment term is 5 years and the maximum is 10 years.
4. Partial or premature withdrawal is not allowed under this scheme.
5. Tax shall be deducted at source and a TDS certificate provided unless the investor submits a declaration that he is filing returns.
6. The scheme is available to senior citizens who are residents of India.
Under this scheme, Kotak Mahindra Bank accepts deposits for a period of 7 days to 10 years and pays interest on a monthly or quarterly basis depending on the choice of the investor. It is also possible to reinvest the interest into the scheme - cumulative deposit. Investors may withdraw the entire amount prior to the maturity date by paying a small penalty. This scheme is available to NRI, NRO, and NRE investors also.
Like other banks, Kotak Mahindra Bank also provides a higher rate of interest to senior citizens of India (individuals over the age of 60). Senior citizens may open an FD account in their single name or in the joint name with their spouse or other family member. The interest on these FDs is 0.5% above the declared rate under the scheme.
This facility is provided by Kotak Mahindra Bank on its regular fixed deposits. Investors can link one or more FDs to their savings bank accounts. This gives them the benefit of maintaining only a minimal balance in the SB account while their funds earn interest from FD schemes. The investor can still withdraw money from the SB account as and when required. These withdrawals will be fulfilled using funds from the linked FD and the balance amount will continue to earn interest. The bank charges a small fee for this service every time a transaction is completed.
The interest on fixed depositsis expressed as a percentage of the deposit amount. Interest is usually computed annually except in cases where the terms of the scheme provide for more frequent computations. Interest rates range from 3.5% to 9% and vary with amount of deposit and term. Rates may also change following directives from the RBI or government.
As a general rule amount cannot be withdrawn form an FD account. However if the investor wishes he can close the account and withdraw the entire fund. In such a case a small penalty - expressed as a reduction in the rate of interest - will be charged. Kotak Mahindra Bank charges 1% penalty on withdrawal. That is to say the investor will be paid 1% less than the agreed interest rate for the period for which the amount remained with the bank.
Some special schemes like the Sweep-in deposits allow partial withdrawal of funds.
The following tables show the rates of interest offered by Kotak Mahindra Bank under various schemes.
