The tax-saving deposits provided by Federal Bank have a lock-in period of five years and premature withdrawals are not allowed. There is also no loan facility available on these deposits. The minimum deposit amount is just Rs.100.


To be eligible for tax-saving deposits, one must fulfil certain criteria. For example, non-resident Indians (NRIs) are not eligible for these deposits. In addition, one must submit a copy of the PAN card when applying to start a deposit.
