SBI Term Deposit

SBI Term Deposits are the simplest form of fixed deposits offered by the State Bank of India. The minimum amount required to be deposited in these accounts is Rs. 1000. There is no maximum limit on the amount you may deposit. Interest rate varies depending on the rates declared by RBI from time to time. You can opt for quarterly, monthly, or calendar quarterly interest payouts. Tenure ranges from 7 days to 10 years. In case no instructions are received before date of maturity, the FDs will be automatically renewed by the bank.

Under the term deposit scheme, investors have the option to convert the deposits from interest payout option to cumulative and vice versa.

SBI Special Term Deposit

This is a variant of the term deposit scheme from State Bank of India. Under this scheme, the interest is credited to the deposit account instead of being the investors saving bank account. Other conditions such as minimum deposit of Rs. 1000 and term between 7 days to 10 years are the same.

SBI Multi Option Deposits (MODS)

MODS is another variation of the term deposit scheme offered by the State Bank of India. While other conditions remain the same, investors may withdraw funds from this scheme at any time during the term. Funds can be withdrawn only in multiples of Rs. 1000. The remaining amount will continue to earn interest at the rate originally stated under the scheme. In other words, no penalty is applicable for premature withdrawal and partial withdrawal of funds is possible under this State Bank of India Fixed Deposit scheme.

SBI Annuity Deposit Scheme

Under this scheme, investors can deposit a lump sum amount of 25,000 or more 36, 60, 84 or 120 months. The amount deposited will earn interest as applicable to other term deposits. At the end of the term, the investor will receive an annuity beginning exactly 1 month from the date of deposit. This annuity is comprised of part of the principal amount as well as interest on deposit. Premature withdrawal is not permitted under this scheme except in case of death of the investor.

SBI Flexi Deposit Scheme

Under this scheme the investor deposits a small amount each month. The amount deposited may vary from month to month. It is also not required to make a deposit each month. However the amounts deposited within a year must add up to an agreed annual amount under the scheme.

The minimum instalment under the scheme is Rs. 10 and the maximum is Rs. 500. A minimum annual amount of INR 5000 must be deposited under the scheme. The maximum annual amount allowed is Rs. 50000.

Interest Rate on State Bank of India Fixed Deposit

The rate of interest on term deposits varies from time to time depending on the rates declared by the Reserve Bank of India. It also varies with amount of deposit and term. Interest rates range between 3.5 to 9 per cent, and vary from one bank to another. Investors cannot withdraw the amount deposited before maturity except by paying a penalty expressed as a reduction of the interest rate. Most FDs earn the same rate of interest throughout the term except for some specialized schemes.
