Running short of money and in desperate need of a loan? Well, if you have invested in Fixed Deposit (FD), you can avail loan against your deposits in case there is an urgent need. Yes, there is no need to break the FD! Banks, including those in the private sector, provide loans against FD. India's leading lender, State Bank of India provides loan up to 90% of the value of your FD. Not just on demand loan, some banks like SBI also provide an Overdraft Facility depending on the need of the customer.
Compared to regular loans, a low rate is charged by banks on the money taken against FD. The official SBI website says, "Individual Customer holding TDR/STDR/e-TDR/e-STDR with SBI in Single name only (No Joint Account Holders) can avail the facility online. Joint Account Holders can avail this facility at the Branches. At Branch level, the loan is also sanctioned against the security of RD/e-RD/NRE/NRO/RFC and FCNR(B) Deposits."
Currently, on a loan taken against FD, SBI charges just 1% more interest than the applicable FD rate. The leading lender offers a minimum of Rs 25,000 and a maximum of Rs 5 crore for online overdraft against FD. The bank fixes a suitable repayment schedule depending on the repayment capacity of the borrower.
The SBI website says, "Suitable repayment schedule will be fixed depending upon the repayment capacity of the borrower for Loan taken through Branches. Maximum Repayment period has been capped at 5 years against STDR/e-STDR and 3 years against TDR/e-TDR respectively for Overdraft availed online."
