Auto Renewal

Under Auto Renewal the below 2 options are available

2) Renew Principal and Interest on Maturity

Based on the option selected by the depositor, the deposit receipt will be renewed on due date either for full amount or only principal.

Auto Refund

If Auto Refund is opted then the maturity proceeds will be credited to the depositors account on the date of maturity. Repayment of deposit falling due on a Sunday or a bank holiday or any day when the company’s head office is not working due to holiday or otherwise will be made on the next working day.

On Maturity the depositor can opt for:

1) Payment of Maturity Amount

2) Renewal of Maturity Amount

Payment of Maturity Amount

If the Deposit receipt is held in Physical form and not opted for Auto refund, then receipt duly discharged on a revenue stamp of one rupee must be surrendered to the Company for Repayment. In the case of the Deposit with “F or S/s” clause, the discharge has to be made by the first named depositor only. However in the case of deposit with “A or S/s” clause, any one of the depositor may give the discharge.

The Company shall intimate the details of maturity of the deposit to the depositor at least two months before the date of the maturity of the deposit. Interest will cease on the maturity date of the deposit, if the deposit is not renewed within six months from the date of maturity, or if the deposit is withdrawn after the maturity date.

Redemption payment will be made only by National electronic clearing services (NECS)/ National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT) wherever such facility is available and by crossed Account payee cheque for depositors in other locations.

Renewal of Maturity Amount

Deposits can be renewed from the date of maturity date if renewal instructions along with deposit receipts except for auto renewal, are received within 6 months from the date of maturity. In such cases the rate prevailing on the date of maturity will be applicable. Otherwise the same will be renewed prospectively and in such cases interest ceases on maturity. Renewal of deposit will be for an amount net of TDS if any.

In the case of A or S/s accounts, renewal retaining one of the depositor(s) as the first depositor are possible. However, renewals to the persons other than the second/third depositors in A or S/s accounts are not possible.
