The South Indian Bank Fixed Deposit tenure varies from 15 days to 10 years. One can open a fixed deposit account with a minimum of Rs.100 and go up to a much higher amount depending on the scheme you opt for. The easiest way to book your fixed term deposit is to visit the nearest bank branch.

There are different schemes of the fixed term deposit available with the South Indian Bank. These are SIB Flexi Smart Deposit, SIB Tax Gain 2006, Recurring Deposit, Kalpakanidhi, Fast Cash Deposit, SIB Care, SIB Flexi Deposit, Fixed Deposits and SIB Maximo-Non callable deposits.
