Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Fixed Deposit?

A Fixed Deposit(FD) is an investment instrument that allows you to invest a lump-sum amount for a chosen tenure to earn interest at a fixed rate. Typically, you get a higher interest rate on a Fixed Deposit than on a regular savings account.

What are the tax implications of a Fixed Deposit?

According to Section 194A of the Income Tax Act, 1961, wherever there is an income, the income providing entity must deduct tax, known as Tax Deducted At Source (TDS). In case of Fixed Deposits, you earn interest, and thus the bank must deduct TDS. The bank deducts TDS when the interest income exceeds INR 40,000 or INR 50,000 in the case of senior citizens. The rate at which TDS is levied is 10% if you have provided your PAN details. In the absence of PAN, banks will charge TDS at 20%.

If I reinvest my term deposit at the end of the tenure, will the interest rate stay the same?

No. The current interest rate at the time of the creation of the new deposit will apply.

Can I withdraw money from my fixed deposit before the maturity date?

Yes, you can terminate a deposit at any time, but there are penalties for the early closure. Use the "Manage" tab in the "Term Deposits" section of the DBS Bank app to know more.

What happens when my Fixed Deposit matures?

When your deposit matures, you have the option of reinvesting the balance in a new deposit, transferring the money into your DBS Bank Savings Account, or only transferring the interest to your account and reinvesting the original investment in a new term deposit.

Will my deposit be automatically reinvested on maturity?

It will be automatically reinvested only if your instructions while opening the deposit mention reinvesting the amount on maturity. You can edit your settings in the "Deposits (FD/RD)" section of the DBS Bank app., select the deposit you want to view or change and then click on the "Manage" tab.

Is there a cut-off date when I can no longer change the maturity instructions for my FD?

No. You can change the maturity instructions at any time during the tenure by visiting the "Manage" tab in the "Deposits (FD/RD)" section of the DBS Bank app.

If I choose to reinvest my deposit on maturity, will I be notified when it is reinvested?

Before maturity, you will receive notifications by a combination of SMS, email and in-app messages. If you choose to reinvest upon maturity then, we will do so and notify you about it once it is done.

Is there a charge for insuring my deposits with DBS Bank?

No, we do not charge you for opening a Fixed Deposit with us. The bank covers the applicable cost.

How many deposits can I hold at the same time?

You can open as many FD Accounts as you wish. There is no limit.

What if my deposit matures on a weekend or public holiday?

In case your term deposit matures on a weekend or a public holiday, the maturity will automatically happen on the next working day. However, the deposit will continue to earn interest for the extra days.

When will interest be paid on my deposit?

The Interest on your Fixed Deposit is credited to your account on maturity or premature termination.  But an early termination may result in an interest rate lower than the current rate.

Do senior citizens get any extra benefits for term deposits?

The interest rates on Fixed Deposits for senior citizens are enhanced by 0.5%.

How is the interest calculated if I withdraw my Fixed Deposit before it matures?

If you withdraw your deposit before maturity, your interest will be paid for the period of time that the deposit was held at either the prevailing rate on the original date of placement or the contracted rate, whichever is lower.

Can I get an overdraft / Deposit loan for my Fixed Deposit?
