Features of Indian Bank RD Scheme 2023:

  • The account tenure can range from 6 months to a year.

  • Interest rates as high as 6.70% p.a. are available to customers with Indian Bank RD.

Types of Indian Bank RD Accounts

  1. Variable Recurring Deposit

    This scheme allows you to change the amount in the monthly installments at will. A minimum amount of Rs.25 is required to open such an account, while the maximum amount is Rs.1 lakh. The most significant advantage of this scheme is that there is no penalty imposed on the account owner in case the monthly deposits are not paid in time. 

  2. Insured Recurring Deposit

    This RD scheme provides life insurance cover on top of the total interest earned on your investment. A minimum deposit amount of Rs.100 is required to open such an account for a tenure ranging from 3 to 5 years.

How to Open an RD Account with Indian Bank? 

For customers without any existing account with the Indian Bank, a new Indian Bank savings account is required. It is simple and quick to open a savings account, which is then linked to your RD account. A bank representative at your local Indian Bank branch can assist you with the procedures mentioned above. 

Tax Benefits of Owning an RD Account

If the interest earned in the RD account across all branches of Indian Bank exceeds Rs.40,000 for a financial year for a regular customer, the bank will waive the income tax at a source. For senior citizens, the limit is Rs.50,000. The former TDS applied was 10%. However, due to the pandemic, there has been a reduction in the TDS rate to 7.5%.

Note: It is recommended to use RD calculator to get the estimate of RD interest before making investment decision.
*Tax benefits are subject to changes in tax laws.

Eligibility Criteria to Open an Indian Bank RD

 The following can open an RD account with Indian Bank:

  • Permanent residents of India

Premature Withdrawal of RD 

Usually, a choice of premature withdrawal is provided to the customer, i.e. breaking the RD before it is fully mature. However, the initial interest might get hindered depending on how early the RD is broken from the actual maturity date. Your interest rate might get reduced.
