SBI Amrit Kalash is a deposit scheme that lets you earn decent returns. Find out the details here!
Just recently the Country’s largest Bank, the State Bank of India- rolled out a new FD scheme for just 400 days. A large number of customers have already availed of the facility. The scheme looks quite good and people are already liking it due to its liquidity and short term.
Not to mention the decent interest rate the bank is offering. These kinds of fixed deposits are quite helpful in generating a good amount of returns whereas going to mutual funds and other investment options to get a good return would require taking risks.
Under the Amrit Kalash FD scheme, you would get it at a 7.10 percent rate of interest. Moreover, if you are a senior person you would get an additional .50 interest and that would be 7.60 percent per annum.
