What Are the Documents Required for Getting a Fixed Deposit in India?

In the current situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, when returns on other investment instruments are uncertain, you need to plan your financial future wisely and give your hard-earned money every opportunity to grow. The Mahindra Finance Fixed Deposit can help you with that.

What is a fixed deposit (FD)?

FD is an investment instrument offered by financial institutions where you can put your money and receive periodic returns. The interest rate of an FD is higher than a savings account. Apart from building a fortune, you can use the FD account to get a loan against it.

FD rates

The FD rates depend on the type of account you have. Mahindra Finance offers different kinds of FDs, including Samruddhi Cumulative/Non-cumulative Schemes and Bulk Deposit Cumulative/Non-cumulative Schemes.

This table shows the interest rates of the Samruddhi Cumulative/Non-Cumulative Schemes.
