The interest accrued on this scheme will be added to the principal (re-investment plan) on a quarterly basis. It is an opportunity for non-residents to invest their funds as the interest earned is exempt from income tax. The deposits cannot be closed prematurely.
However, customers have the option of availing loans up to 75 percent of the deposit amount in the event funds are required prior to maturity.
While officially launching the new deposit scheme, Shalini Warrier, Executive Director of the Bank remarked, “The bank is a key player in the non-resident India segment, holds a market share of close to 7 percent in NR segment and routes 22 percent of personal inward remittances to India."
According to Federal bank, the new variant of NR deposit scheme will be an attractive investment option for NRI customers to gain better return than normal NRE term deposits.
"Federal Bank has a significant share of the NRE market as well as the remittance business in India. This product will help Federal Bank make further in roads and build market share," the bank said.
