With the record breaking number’s coming in for people affected from Covid-19, Central bank of India has come up with a unique idea to provide Higher interest rates to those who have taken vaccination.
The scheme is known as “Immune India Deposit Scheme” for 1111 days wherein people will get extra 25 base points (bps) (i.e. equivalent to 0.25%) as compared to normal interest rates and senior citizen would get 0.5% extra.
For availing this scheme one needs to show their covid vaccine certificate at the bank. Although it might be a great benefit for people looking at the low interest rates on Fixed deposit but it is definitely a good way to educate people about precautions during Covid.
