NRO Fixed Deposit

Opt for the DBS Treasures Non-Resident Ordinary (NRO) Fixed Deposits, with the fund parked in your NRO Account. Open the NRI deposit remotely from Australia and enjoy competitive interest rates on the FD created from your Indian income sources. Open the NRO FD accounts individually or jointly with a resident or non-resident Indian.

FCNR Fixed Deposit

The DBS Foreign Currency Non-Resident Fixed Deposit (FCNR) allows you to deposit your money across six major currencies. Enjoy competitive interest rates on your Australian dollars and earn interest income in AUD.

How to Invest in Deposits?

Invest in various NRI deposit types from Australia based on your requirements. Follow our simple process that includes selecting your preferred NRI Deposit type based on its unique features and locking the deposit amount. If you require repatriation facilities, then an NRE or FCNR FD would better fit you. In contrast, NRO FDs enable you to earn the same interest income as provided to Resident Indians. You can also reach out to a digibank relationship manager for assistance on how to invest in deposits.
