Canara Bank is now accepting applications for a unique fixed-term deposit plan with a term of 666 days. In line with the strategy outlined, the financial institution, which caters to the general private sector client, pays a 7% annual percentage return on deposits, while the elderly or seniors are entitled to a 7.5% APY. This unique term deposit scheme is provided by the State Bank and applies to amounts less than 2 crores.

Canara Bank, a public sector financial institution, has increased both the Repo Linked Lending Rate (RLLR) and the Marginal Cost of Funds Based Lending Rate (MCLR). The new prices come into effect today, October 7, 2022. Both MCLR and RLLR were raised by the bank across the board for all maturities. Canara Bank increased its overnight to 1-month MCLR rates by 15 basis points to 7.05%. The three-month MCLR rate rose to 7.40% after a 15 basis point rise, while the six-month MCLR rate rose to 7.80% after a similar rise. The bank raised its one-year MCLR rate by one basis point from 7.89% to 7.90%.

Canara Special Deposit Scheme Withdrawal Penalty

  • Points to consider before applying: A penalty of one per cent will be assessed for early closing, partial withdrawal or rollover of domestic or NGO term deposits of less than two million rupees which are accepted or rolled over.
  • This penalty also applies if the deposit is extended. “For early closure/partial withdrawal/early renewal of domestic/NGO term deposits, the bank will impose a 1.00% penalty,” according to Canara Bank’s website. Such deposits will earn interest at a rate that is either 1.00% lower than the rate applicable to the relevant amount tile at the time of deposit and for the current period OR 1.00% lower than the rate at which the deposit was made made was accepted, whichever is the lower.
  • This applies regardless of whether the depot was closed early, partially withdrawn or prematurely extended.
  • On the other hand, time deposits that are withdrawn early or extended before the end of the seventh day do not earn interest.”
