Additional Payments

Tax and TDS

Investment in Cent Tax Saving Deposit qualifies for tax deduction under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. While filing income tax returns, investors can claim the same. All other Central Bank FDs do not qualify for a tax deduction.

The interest that one earns on their Central Bank of India FD investments is taxable. The tax rate depends on the investor’s income tax slab rates. Furthermore, the Central Bank deducts a TDS of 10% (20% if PAN Card isn’t submitted) in case the interest income exceeds INR 40,0000 (INR 50,000 for senior citizens).

One can determine whether their interest income is above or below the TDS threshold limit using the Central Bank of India FD Calculator. Also, they can estimate their tax liability using the Income Tax Calculator. Scripbox’s Income Tax Calculator is available online, is free to use, and it determines tax liability of an investor.

The bank will charge a penalty of 1% on the interest for premature withdrawal of deposits above INR 5 lakhs. For deposits below INR 5 lakhs, there is no penalty. Also, there is not a premature withdrawal facility on tax-saving fixed deposits.

Nomination Facility

Depositors can nominate beneficiaries for their Central Bank of India FDs.

Investors can get up to 90% of the deposit amount as loan. The bank will decide the interest as per the bank’s rules. Also, investors cannot avail a loan against tax-saving FDs and Cent Aspire Deposit Scheme.

Central Bank of India grants loans such as education loans, business loans, and loan against property (home loan) against their FDs to their clients. Investors can calculate their loan EMI with the help of a loan EMI calculator. A loan EMI calculator can be used as a personal loan EMI calculator. Also, one can use it as a home loan calculator and car loan calculator. Moreover, investors can also use the EMI calculator in multiple scenarios by changing the variables like personal loan interest rate, home loan interest rate and car loan interest rate.

Pan Card

A PAN card isn’t mandatory to open a Central Bank of India FD account. Even though a PAN Card isn’t mandatory, there are a few consequences of not disclosing PAN details. Central Bank will charge TDS at 20% instead of 10% as per the regulations of section 206AA. Central Bank will not issue a TDS certificate. And all exemption certificates, including Form 15G and Form 15H, will be invalid.
