You may be familiar with the process of opening a new FD account at your bank using your savings or current account. But, it follows a different process, when it comes to opening a new corporate fixed deposit account. At a bank branch, where you maintain your account, you just need to submit a filled-in application form and a cheque to get a new FD certificate. But, at an HFC like PNB Housing, the procedure to open a fixed deposit account is a little bit different for both individual and non-individual FD.

Documents required for individual fixed deposit

  • One recent colour passport size photograph
  • Self-attested copy of PAN Card
  • Self-attested copy of address proof like a voter-ID card or AADHAAR card etc.

Documents required for non-individual fixed deposit

Non-individual includes trusts, clubs, associations, public/private ltd. companies, co-operative societies, co-operative banks, and partnership firms. For opening an FD new account, an entity needs to submit all legal documents of incorporation and registration along with specimen signatures of all authorised persons. Other common documents required for fd account:

  • Copy of entity’s PAN Card
  • Copy of entity’s address proof
  • Latest colour passport size photograph, PAN Card and address proof of authorised persons
