FCNR (B) DEPOSITS - APPLICABLE RATE OF INTEREST FOR CLOSURE BEFORE MATURITY

For FCNR (B) Deposits opened/renewed prior to 19.11.2021:

if FCNR (B) deposit is closed before maturity on or after completion of the stipulated minimum period of deposit of 1 year, the rate of interest payable on such prematurely closed deposit shall be 1% less than the stipulated rate of interest applicable to FCNR (B) deposit for the period run, as ruling on the date of deposit.

If FCNR (B) deposit is closed before maturity on or after completion of the stipulated minimum period of deposit of 1 year, for reinvestment in FCNR (B) deposit in other permitted currencies (i.e., USD, GBP, EUR, AUD, CAD), the rate of interest payable on such prematurely closed deposit shall be 0.50% less than the rate applicable for the period run, as ruling on the date of FCNR (B) deposit.

Guidelines for calculation and payment of interest for the overdue period on FCNR (B)/RFC Term Deposits are as mentioned below:-

Overdue period (from the date of maturity till the date of renewal, both days inclusive) FCNR (B) Deposit RFC Term Deposit
Not exceeding 14 days

1. Overdue deposit or a portion thereof can be renewed from the date of maturity.

2. The rate of interest payable on the amount of the deposit so renewed shall be the appropriate rate of interest for the period of renewal as prevailing on the date of maturity or on the date of renewal, whichever is lower.

1. Overdue RFC Term Deposit can be renewed from the date of maturity at the interest rate prevailing on the date of maturity, provided the deposit is renewed to fall due after a period of not less than one month from the date of renewal.

2. In case of renewal of individual RFC Term Deposits of value USD 250,000 and above or equivalent in other currencies, minimum period of renewal can be one week beyond date of renewal.

3. Wherever the depositor opts to renew the deposit from the date of presentation to take advantage of enhanced interest rate prevailing on the date of presentation, same can be acceded to without payment of interest for the overdue period.

More than 14 days Simple interest at par with RFC SB rate for the respective currency prevailing on the date of renewal or the contracted rate of interest on the matured TD, whichever is lower.

In case a foreign currency denominated deposit with a fixed maturity date remains inoperative for a period of three years from the date of maturity of the deposit, at the end of the third year, the bank shall convert the balances lying in the foreign currency denominated deposit into Indian Rupee at the exchange rate prevailing as on that date. Thereafter, the depositor shall be entitled to claim either the said Indian Rupee proceeds and interest thereon, if any, or the foreign currency equivalent (calculated at the rate prevalent as on the date of payment) of the Indian Rupee proceeds of the original deposit and interest, if any, on such Indian Rupee proceeds.

If customer submits request for placement of such INR proceeds in term deposit, guidelines for payment of simple interest for overdue period of FCNR (B)/RFC deposit for the pre crystallization period of 3 years from the date of maturity are as follows:-

  • If the depositor is NRI on the date of renewal – Rate of Interest shall be simple interest at par with RFC SB rate for the respective currency prevailing on the date of renewal or the contracted rate of interest on the matured TD, whichever is lower.
  • If the depositor is resident on the date of renewal – Rate of Interest shall be RFC SB rate prevailing on the date of maturity or on the date of renewal, whichever is lower.
  • In cases where FCY deposits are crystallized, customer is entitled for the simple interest at ongoing SB rate on the INR component for the post crystallization period irrespective of the fact whether customer opts for renewal or withdrawal.

Important Points

  • In cases where deposit is overdue for more than 14 days, renewal from date of maturity is not permitted. If customer requests the Bank for renewal of such overdue deposit, the same shall be acceded to by treating it as a fresh term deposit at the interest rate prevailing on the date of renewal for the period of fresh term deposit.
  • In case where deposit is not renewed for minimum maturity period, no interest for the overdue period for which it remained in FCY shall be paid.
  • In case, where only a portion of the overdue deposit is renewed, interest for the overdue period shall be paid on the amount so placed.
  • If, after renewal, the deposit is withdrawn before completion of the minimum stipulated period, interest paid for the overdue period i.e. period beyond the original date of maturity of earlier deposit shall be recovered.
  • In case where deposit is crystallized, for determining interest rate for overdue period (pre-crystallization), customer’s residential status as on the date of renewal shall be reckoned.
