Features of Sundaram Finance FD Rates

Eligibility- Individuals, Private Limited Company, Partnership Firms, Trust and Foundations. 

Loan on FD– An overdraft is available for up to 75% of the principal amount. It is at the discretion of the company to provide the loan facility to a depositor. An NRI is not eligible for a loan. In the case of A or S/s accounts, both/all depositors must sign the deposit receipt. In the case of N or S/s accounts, the first depositor must sign the loan paperwork. For loans, only the first depositor’s cheque/DD will be drawn. If renewal instructions for the balance amount (subject to a minimum of Rs. 10,000) are not received one week before the maturity, the loan principal and interest will be adjusted and the loan will be paid on maturity.

Maturity of Deposits- The Maturity Intimation letter is sent 15 days before the maturity date, together with the renewal application form. On maturity, the principal amount along with interest earned is credited to the linked savings bank account.

Renewal of Deposits- the depositor must give the Original Deposit Receipt and the renewal form. To renew the deposit, the applicant must file the request within 2 months from the date of maturity. Otherwise, the contract will be renewed in the future. It is not feasible to renew with a loan. On the maturity date, the loan must be adjusted against the deposit value.

Nominee- After submitting the necessary documentation, depositors can name one person (for a Deposit Account) as a nominee. The nominee will receive the refund of the deposit in the event of the Depositor’s death.

Premature Withdrawal- The company reserves the right to allow deposits to be withdrawn before maturity at its sole discretion. When a deposit is allowed to be withdrawn early, the related deposit receipt must be signed by all depositors in the event of an A or S/s deposit, and the first-named depositor in the case of an N or S/s deposit. On a premature withdrawal, the depositor will have to pay a penalty. This means that he or she will receive less than the applicable interest rate effectively. If the FD is withdrawn after 3 months and before 6 months no penalty will be levied. On withdrawal of FD after 6 months and before 12 months, a penalty of 3% lower than the One year rate at the time of deposit. On withdrawal of FD after 12 months and before 24 months, a penalty of 2% is lower than the one year rate at the time of deposit. If the FD is withdrawn after 3 months and before 24 months and before 36 months then 2% lower than the two-year rate at the time of deposit is applicable as a penalty.
