AB Recurring Plus
 Launching of a New Deposit Scheme - AB "Recurring Plus" Scheme

Recurring deposit scheme is meant for steady and gradual saving for individuals to build-up savings through regular monthly deposit of a fixed sum over a fixed period and mobilizing savings of those who get income on monthly basis and can afford to set apart a portion of their income. It helps the depositors to accumulate their savings over a period to meet future contingencies. It is handy even for Business Community, Firms, Companies, Educational Institutions and other Associations, who wish to build a corpus over a period of time to meet future requirements.

Another major advantage in the scheme is the deposit amount carries rate of interest as in the case of other term deposits (as per the period of the deposit) while the interest accrued is not subjected to any TDS. This specific advantage provides a clear edge to Recurring Deposits over other forms of Term Deposits

The salient feature of Recurring Plus’ Deposit is that the depositor can step up installment amount upto 10 times of originally opted monthly installment amount.
