  • The additional interest rate scheme will be applicable to new fixed deposits booked as well as for the renewals.
  • The special FD scheme for senior citizens will be open only till 30 September 2020.
  • For fixed deposits of over five years but under ten years, HDFC Bank will be paying an additional interest of 75 bps (0.75 percent).
  • Under HDFC Bank Senior Citizen Care FD, then interest rate applicable will be 6.50 percent.
  • In case of premature closure of FD booked under HDFC Bank Senior Citizen Care FD scheme offer (including a sweep in / partial closure) post 5 years, the interest rate will be 1.25 percent below the contracted rate or the base rate applicable for the period the deposit has remained with the bank, whichever is lower.
