  1. Is Tamil Nadu Mercantile bank a good bank to do Fixed deposit?

    • Yes Tamil Nadu Mercantile bank is good bank for FD. In-fact most of the time they offer best interest rates on different tenures! Anyway you must be aware that in India bank deposits up to Rs 1 Lakh is insured in case of default. You can read more here.

  2. Do I have to own a bank account to put a fixed deposit ?

  3. At present interest rate of 8.5%, you would get Rs 25.5 lakhs every year. It really does not matter that you deposit in one or multiple accounts, as its easier for banks to figure it out total deposits of a customer in all the branches of the bank. In case you are looking to save some tax you might like to deposit on your family member’s names.
