Blog Seprator

The New Year, a time to celebrate with family and friends, is around the corner. It is the time to give gifts to the people you love and let them know how much they mean to you. But, instead of spending money on chocolates, sweets and clothes, isn’t it the time to give them security. Now, don’t go thinking about security cameras, but think about the security of money. How can you do that? There are a lot of financial schemes you can choose from, but in the long term, Fixed Deposit investments offer the perfect balance between risk and return.

All you need to do is buy an FD in the name of your loved ones and ensure that they earn an income and are guaranteed to receive a sum of money when the deposit matures. But, before you do that, here are some tips you should be aware of:

A longer tenure will get you a higher interest rate
One of the major reasons for gifting an FD is to ensure that your loved one is earning a higher interest possible from the deposited amount. What you can do is opt for a longer tenure! You can judge the difference for yourself – FD interest rates offered by PNB Housing ranges from 8.05%* for twelve months and 8.45%* for sixty months. That is a difference of nearly 40 bps and you should take it into account before finalizing.

Gift an FD as per the needs of your giftee
Bringing joy on New Year day is easy if you can understand the needs of the recipient or giftee! Does the person require a regular income source? If yes, then opt for a non-cumulative FD wherein the person who you name the depositor can get monthly, quarterly, six-monthly or annual payment. A fixed income source will bring cheer throughout the year. The other option is the cumulative option, where the amount is deposited for tenure, and the interest is earned at maturity.

Understand the terms and conditions of the offer
PNB Housing has certain terms and conditions that you will have to follow in order to create and gift the FD. For example, if you are opting for a cumulative FD, it requires Rs. 10,000 as a fixed deposit minimum amount. Take into account factors like premature withdrawal and loan facility, so that the gift is usable in case of an emergency. You will also need to factor in applicable gift taxes and the eligibility of the giftee to be named as the depositor.

Don’t think twice when gifting senior citizens an FD
One of the major necessities for senior citizens is a stable income source. And, senior citizen FD benefits in India are many. The reason that they are a great gift option as they are eligible for higher interest rates and there is an assurance of returns. PNB Housing offers 0.25% higher FD interest rates for senior citizens.

Clear all doubts before investing
Don’t forget to look at CRISIL rating. If in any doubt, you can call the customer care executives or visit the nearest PNB Housing Finance Limited branch to understand the details. Do your research before finalizing the FD, to make the experience enjoyable for both yourself and your loved one.

Now that you know the essential tips for investing in Fixed Deposits, go ahead and bring the joy of financial stability to your loved one that can last beyond 2020!
