Investment for 5 years gets the benefit of tax exemption
By investing in this time deposit scheme and FD for 5 years, one can avail tax exemption under section 80C of the Income Tax Act 1961. Under this, you can take advantage of income tax exemption on investment up to Rs 1.50 lakh.
Keep these things in mind while making FD
It is important to choose the right tenure
Before investing in an FD, it is important to think about its tenure. This is because if investors withdraw before maturity, they will have to pay the penalty. Breaking the FD before maturity will result in a penalty of up to 1%. This can reduce the total interest earned on the deposit.
Don’t invest all your money in a single FD
If you are planning to invest 10 lakh rupees in FD in any one bank, then instead invest in 8 FDs of 1 lakh rupees and 4 FDs of 50 thousand rupees in more than one bank. With this, if you need money in the middle, you can arrange money according to your need by breaking the FD in the middle. Rest of your FD will be safe.
Withdrawal of interest
Banks earlier had the option to withdraw interest on quarterly and annual basis. Now you can also do monthly withdrawal in some banks. You can choose it according to your need.
