Tamilnad Mercantile Bank FD Interest Rate FAQs

Here are the frequently asked questions on the Fixed Deposit Interest Rates:

The customers have to mandatorily quote their PAN Card/number under Section 206AA, IT Act. This is necessary if the interest on TMB fixed deposits exceeds Rs. 10,000 for the financial year. If not, then the depositor has to pay a higher rate of income tax of 20%.

The PAN quoting is mandatory in Form 15G/15H for non-deduction of TDS (tax at source) or again a higher rate of income tax at 20% is applicable. The customer has to, thus, submit a photocopy of his/her PAN Card at the bank when opening the fixed deposit account.

For TMB fixed deposits, you can withdraw interest either monthly or quarterly. Simple interest is eligible. But the interest for savings account interest is compounded quarterly. Also, for SB account deposits, the rate is calculated on the daily closing balance.

The additional interest rate on TD for senior citizens is not applicable on NRO deposits. The specialized rates will also not apply for senior citizens who opt to keep TD for 3 to 10 years.

No penalty rates apply on premature withdrawals on bulk deposits of Rs. 2 crores and over, if done after 14 days of TD opening.

There is no payable interest on premature withdrawal of fixed deposits up to 14 days from the opening/renewal date of the TD. Also, if the customer pre-closes the FD, he/she will have to bear 1% penalty interest on the applicable rate for the tenure for which the FD was active with the bank.
