In the case of Foreign currency account in the name of Non-residents, all the joint account holders should be non-residents.

7.Nomination facility: Nomination facility is available on all deposit accounts opened by individuals. Nomination can be made in favour of one individual only. Nomination so made can be changed / cancelled by the account holder(s) at any time. Nomination can be made in favour of a minor also.

8.Minimum amount of deposit: Depending upon the cost of operations and the kind of services / value additions offered, Bank may fix the minimum amount of deposit that will be accepted in a term deposit account including recurring deposit and the minimum balance that should always be maintained in an operated deposit account such as Savings Bank account and Current Deposit account. Currently, the minimum balance requirement for various types of deposit accounts are given in Annexure I.

In order to ensure that the minimum balance is maintained, moderate charge as given in Annexure I is levied for non-maintenance of minimum balance in Savings Bank account and Current Deposit account.

9.Charges for maintaining deposit account: While there is no charge for maintenance of term deposit accounts, nominal charges are payable on operating accounts viz. Savings Bank accounts and Current Deposit accounts. The schedule of charges are given in the table in Annexure II.

10.Interest rates on deposits: In the deregulated environment, Bank fixes the interest rates on term deposits including Recurring Deposit based on market conditions, need for mobilisation of funds and keeping in mind the cost of funds. The interest rates are subject to revision from time to time. The interest shall be calculated at quarterly rests on term deposits. In the case of term deposits with monthly interest payments, the interest shall be calculated for the quarter and paid monthly at discounted value. The interest on term deposits including Recurring deposit is calculated by the Bank in accordance with the formulae and conventions advised by Indian Banks' Associations. Bank, based on the market conditions, need for mobilisation of funds and taking into account the cost of funds, presently offers additional interest on single deposits of Rs.15 lakh and above. Whenever interest rates are revised, the revised rates are applicable to fresh deposits as well as renewal of matured deposits only.

The interest rates offered are non-discretionary and non-discriminatory and are applicable uniformly to all depositors at all branches of the Bank.
While all the Term Deposit Schemes carry fixed interest rates, Bank has a scheme offering Floating Interest Rate. The Floating Interest Rate is linked to the six month average of 5 year Government Security Rate for deposits with maturity periods of 3 years to 5 years and six month average of 10 year Government Security Rate for deposits with maturity of over 5 years to 10 years. The minimum deposit accepted under the scheme is Rs.1 lakh and in multiples of Rs.10,000. There is no limit on maximum deposit accepted. The deposits are accepted for a minimum period of 3 years upto a maximum of 10 years. Premature closure of the deposit is not allowed before completion of 3 years (10 days advance notice required for foreclosure after 3 years). The Floating Rate undergoes a change when the Government security rate also undergoes a change. The Floating rate, however, is reset twice a year on 1st March and 1st September based on the changes in the link rate. The interest rate is payable every calendar quarter. Loan can be availed against Floating Rate deposit. The deposit is accepted in select branches only for operational convenience. Transfer of deposit between branches is not permitted. Conversion from Floating rate to Fixed rate is not permitted. .

Bank has the statutory obligation to deduct tax at source if the total interest paid /payable on all term deposits held by a person exceeds the amount specified under the Income Tax Act. Bank will give a certificate for the Tax deducted at source.

The interest rate on Savings Bank deposit is currently determined by RBI and it is at present 3.50%. S.B. interest is payable every half-year in the month of February and August calculated on the minimum balance between the 10th and the last working day of every month. As per RBI regulation, Current Deposits do not attract any interest. The current interest rates are given in Annexure III.

NRE Deposits: The interest rates on NRE term deposits are fixed, as per RBI directive, not exceeding LIBOR/SWAP rates for US Dollars for corresponding maturity prevailing as on the last working day of the previous month and will be made applicable for the following month. The interest rate on NRE S.B. deposits presently will not exceed the LIBOR/SWAP rate for US Dollars for 6 months maturity. The interest rates on S.B. deposits would be fixed for each quarter based on the LIBOR/SWAP rate as on the last day of the previous quarter.

11.Method of calculation of interest: For the purpose of calculation of interest on domestic term deposit, on deposits repayable in less than three months or where the terminal quarter is incomplete, interest is paid proportionately for the actual number of days reckoning the year at 365 days.

12. Payment of interest on deposits maturing on a holiday: In respect of a term deposit maturing for payment on a Sunday or a holiday or a non-business working day, bank would pay interest at the originally contracted rate on the deposit amount for the Sunday/holiday/non-business working day, intervening between the date of the expiry of the specified term of the deposit and the date of payment of the proceeds of the deposit on the succeeding working day.

13. Rounding off transactions: All transactions including payment of interest on deposits/charging of interest on advances will be rounded off to the nearest rupee; i.e., fraction of 50 paise and above shall be rounded off to the next higher rupee and fraction of less than 50 paise shall be ignored.

14.Premature closure of term deposits: If a depositor requests the Bank in writing for closure of a term deposit before its normal maturity date, it will be acceded to, irrespective of the amount or period of deposit. The rate of interest agreed at the time of accepting the deposit will not be payable, in case of closure of deposit before the maturity date. The interest payable on such deposit will depend on the period the deposit remained with the Bank and the amount of deposit. Currently, Bank pays interest on premature closure in accordance with the chart given in Annexure IV.

15. Premature renewal of term deposits: The Bank, on a request from the depositor, would allow conversion of a term deposit, a deposit in the form of daily deposit or recurring deposit, to enable the depositor to immediately reinvest the amount lying in the aforesaid deposits with the Bank in another term deposit. The Bank would pay interest in respect of such a term deposit at the rate prevailing on the date of opening applicable for the period the deposit remained with the Bank without any premature closure charges, provided that the deposit remains with the Bank after reinvestment for a period longer than the remaining period of the original contract.

16.Overdue deposits: A term deposit, which is not either closed or renewed for a further period on the date of maturity, automatically becomes an overdue deposit. The deposit ceases to earn interest after the maturity date. However, interest can become payable on an overdue deposit during the period it remained overdue, only if the deposit is renewed for a further period from the date of presentation for renewal, subject to the terms and conditions given in Annexure V.

In order to avoid a deposit becoming overdue, Bank offers the facility of automatic renewal of term deposits, for which the depositor should give instruction to the Bank in writing, at the time of opening the deposit.

17.Issue of maturity notices for term deposits: As a matter of courtesy, and to maintain good customer relations, Bank has a system of sending intimation of impending maturity of term deposits to the depositors at the last known address. However, if for whatever reason the customer wishes not to be intimated, he/she can give necessary instructions to the Bank at the time of placing the deposit.

18.Addition / deletion of names in deposit accounts: Bank may at the request of all the joint account holders allow the addition or deletion of name/s of joint account holder/s if the circumstances so warrant or allow an individual depositor to add the name of another person as a joint account holder. However, the amount or duration of the original deposit should not undergo a change in any manner in case the deposit is a term deposit. Bank may, at its discretion, and at the request of all the joint account holders of a deposit receipt, allow the splitting up of the joint deposit, in the name of each of the joint account holders only, provided that the period and the aggregate amount of the deposit do not undergo any change.

19. Interest on deceased depositors' account: In the case of a term deposit standing in the name/s of a deceased individual depositor, the interest on such deposits is paid as follows:

  1. At the contracted rate of the deposit if the deposit is paid on the maturity date.
  2. If the payment of the deposit is claimed before maturity date, interest is paid at the appropriate rate for the period for which the deposit remained with the Bank, without charging premature closure charges.
  3. In the case of death of depositor before maturity date and amount is claimed after the date of maturity, interest is paid at contracted rate till the date of maturity and from the date of maturity to the date of payment, simple interest is paid at the applicable rate operative on the date of maturity, for the period the deposit remained with the bank beyond the date of maturity.
  4. In the case of death of the depositor after the date of maturity of the deposit, interest is paid at savings bank rate operative on the date of maturity from the date of maturity till date of payment.
  5. In the case of balances lying in current account standing in the name of a deceased individual depositor/sole proprietorship concern, interest is payable only from 1st May 1983 or from the date of death of the depositor, whichever is later, till the date of repayment to the claimant/s at the rate of interest applicable to savings deposit as on the date of payment.
  6. 20. Advances against term deposits

Bank may, at its discretion, grant advance against a term deposit receipt duly discharged standing in the name of the borrower, either singly or jointly up to 90% of deposit amount on execution of loan/security documents. Bank may also grant loan against minor's deposit whose guardian is competent to borrow on behalf of the minor and where the advance is made to the guardian of the minor in such a capacity.

21. Product approval process: New deposit products are introduced and existing products modified by the Bank after a thorough study is made of the product, similar products already existing in the market, customer expectations and the market for such a product. The views and opinions of customers received through branches/Regional Offices are taken into account while designing new products and modifying existing products. While formulating new products, the guidelines issued by Reserve Bank of India and Indian Banks' Association are taken into account. All new products and modification of existing products are approved by the Board of the Bank before being implemented.

22. Inoperative accounts: Current Deposit accounts and Savings Bank accounts in which there has been no operation for a total period of 2 years or more will be transferred to inoperative accounts. A notice will, however, be sent to the depositor before such transfer. However, the account will be made operational if the depositor wants to undertake transactions in the account. The inoperative S.B. account will attract a service charge of Rs.20/- per half year, debited in the month of September and March if the account remains inoperative even one month after issue of notice to the depositor. If the balance in the account is Rs.20 or less, the entire amount will be recovered towards service charges. S.B. accounts and Current Deposit accounts, which have remained inoperative for a total period of 5 years and term deposits not repaid or renewed for 5 years from the date of maturity, will be transferred to unclaimed balances account maintained at Central office. If the depositor desires to continue the account, it can be recalled from Central Office by the branch where the account was earlier maintained.

23.Undesirable accounts: In cases where the operations in S.B. or current deposit account are not satisfactory, Bank may decide to close the account and pay the balance in the account to the depositor, after giving due notice. Few instances, where the account can be treated as undesirable are frequent non-maintenance of minimum balance, number of operations are more and not commensurate with the balance maintained in S.B. account, cheques are being issued without adequate funds or arrangements to meet the cheque amount and the depositor is reported to be indulging in illegal or undesirable activity.

24. Deposits of Senior Citizens: Deposits received from Resident Senior Citizens, who have completed 60 years of age, are given certain additional privileges, in tune with the guidelines received from RBI. Proof of age is required for opening senior citizen deposits. Joint accounts with another senior citizen or with person who is not a senior citizen can be opened.
