About Making FD in SBI bank

State Bank of India’s fixed deposit plan gives you the flexibility to set aside a portion of your salary to achieve your goals and enjoy rates at par with bank FDs.

The SBI bank also offers tax-saving FDs which have a minimum tenor of 5 years. Unlike other FDs, these SBI Fixed Deposits cannot be withdrawn before the completion of the FD tenure. Also, tax-saving FDs cannot be used as collateral for availing of loans.

Similarly, the SBI Tax Saving FDs offer tax benefits up to Rs. 1.5 lacs per annum under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Thus, you can open an SBI fixed deposit account online by logging in to your SBI internet banking account. The best thing is not only you can create online FDS in SBI but also break them whenever there is a need.
