Let’s quickly see what makes non-bank deposits useful:
Best options - FDs are one of the best options for investing your surplus money.
No taxation on FD – Tax saving Bank Fixed Deposits are those FD schemes in which the returns are good and they are not taxed. Investments of specific amount of up to Rs. 1,00,000/- needs to be done for availing such benefits for a minimum of 5 years. Such an investment is insured by a coverage of up to Rs. 1 lakh.
Options to choose from - Not only banks but NBFCs and co-operative banks also offer you to invest in FDs. Sometimes NBFCs offer a higher interest rates than banks. But make sure you invest in a reputed NBFC.
