Interest Rates on Rupee Deposits

1. INTRODUCTION

In exercise of the powers conferred by Sections 21 and 35A read with Section 56 of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 , the Reserve Bank of India, being satisfied that it is necessary and expedient in the public interest so to do, has issued directives that no primary (urban) co-operative bank shall pay interest on rupee deposits of money accepted by it or renewed by it, except in accordance with rates as specified in the Annex 1 & 2,subject to the conditions specified in the paragraphs below.

2. DEFINITIONS

(i) "Demand Liabilities" and "Time Liabilities" shall have the same   meaning as defined in Section 18 read with Section 56 of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 ;

(ii) "Demand Deposit" shall mean a deposit received by the bank which is withdrawable on demand;

(iii) "Saving Deposit" shall mean a form of demand deposit which is a deposit account whether designated as "Saving Account”, "Saving Bank Account", "Saving Deposit Account” or other account by whatever name called, which is subject to the restrictions as to the number of withdrawals as also the amount of withdrawals permitted by the bank during any specified period;

(iv)  "Term Deposit” shall mean a deposit received by the bank for a fixed period and which is withdrawable only after the expiry of the said fixed period and shall also include deposits such as Recurring/Cumulative/ Annuity/Reinvestment deposits, Cash Certificates, and so on;

(v) "Notice Deposit" shall mean term deposit for specific period but withdrawable on giving at least one complete banking day's notice;

(vi)  "Current Account" shall mean a form of demand deposit wherefrom withdrawals are allowed any number of times depending upon the balance in the account or upto a particular agreed amount and shall also be deemed to include other deposit accounts which are neither Savings Deposit nor Term Deposit;

Any institution, irrespective of the  fact  whether  it  is   a  Government  Department, Semi-Government or Quasi-Government  Body,  which receives grants,  loans  or  subsidies  from  the  Government is said to depend on  budgetary allocation. Government grants to institutions are also in the nature of budgetary allocation. Government's subscription to the share capital of these institutions also forms part of the budgetary allocation. Local bodies like Municipal Corporations, Zilla Parishads, Taluka Panchayats and Gram Panchayats are given grants in the nature of 'compensation and assignments', which also form part of budgetary allocation, although taxes collected by these bodies are not covered under the definition and scope of budgetary allocation of Central and State Governments;

Note: NRO/NRE deposits may be accepted only by such banks as   have been   specifically authorised by RBI in this regard.

3. RATE INTEREST PAYABLE ON CURRENT ACCOUNTS

Primary (urban) co-operative banks may, at their discretion, pay interest at a rate not exceeding half per cent per annum on current accounts. As the discretionary provisions generally lead to increase in cost of such deposits, banks are encouraged not to pay interest on current accounts.

Interest on current account balances, wherever paid, shall be calculated on a daily product basis and paid on quarterly or longer rests.

4. RATE OF INTEREST PAYABLE ON SAVINGS DEPOSITS
        
4.1 Banks should pay interest on domestic & NRE savings deposits  at  the  rates  specified  in  the   Annex  1 & 2 to this Master  Circular.

Interest should be calculated on the minimum balance to the credit of the deposit account during the period from the 10th to the last day of each calendar month and credited to the account only when it is Re. 1/- or more. Banks may follow the practice of reckoning the product to the nearest rupee uniformly as suggested by the Indian Banks' Association to its members Such interest should be paid at quarterly or longer rests

5. (A) INTEREST RATES ON TERM DEPOSITS OF NOT LESS THAN 15 DAYS (7 DAYS IN THE CASE OF A TERM DEPOSIT OF RS.15 LAKH & ABOVE AND 1 YEAR IN CASE OF NR DEPOSIT)

Banks should pay interest at the rates specified in annexure 1 & 2 of this Circular. Banks are free to offer floating rate of interest at their discretion, clearly linked to an anchor rate for domestic term deposits and with an upper cap as indicated in Annex 2 of this Master Circular for NRE deposits.  Prior approval of the Board of Directors should be obtained for fixing interest rates of various maturities.

5.1  Banks are free to fix interest rates on domestic term deposits.

The banks may, effective from November 1, 2004, at their discretion, reduce the minimum tenor of domestic/NRO term deposits even below  Rs 15 lakh from 15 days to 7 days.

The banks are required to offer uniform rates on deposits below Rs.15 lakh for the same maturity.

In case of deposits of Rs 15 lakh and above banks may discriminate in the matter of rate of interest between one deposit and another, accepted on the same date and for the same maturity, on the basis of the size of deposit.

Banks are required to disclose in advance the schedule of interest rates payable on deposits including deposits on which differential rate of interest will be paid by the banks. Interest rates paid by a bank should be as per the schedule and the same shall not be subject to negotiation between the bank and the depositor for domestic deposits.

5.6 Banks are required to review their interest rate structure on domestic term deposits of different maturities and take appropriate action to make them comparable with the rates offered by the commercial banks.

(B) METHOD OF CALCULATION OF INTEREST  ON TERM DEPOSITS

Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) code for banking practice is issued by IBA for uniform adoption by the Member Banks. Code is intended to promote good banking practices by setting out minimum standards which member banks will follow in their dealings with customers. IBA, for the purpose of calculation of interest on domestic term deposit, have prescribed  that  on deposits repayable in less than three  months  or   where  the  terminal quarter is incomplete, interest  should  be  paid  proportionately  for the actual number of days reckoning the  year  at   365 days. It has been reported to us that some of the banks are   adopting the model of reckoning the year at 366 days/ 365 days in Leap year and in other years respectively. While banks are free to adopt   their methodology, they should provide information to their depositors about the manner of calculation of interest  appropriately  while   accepting the deposits and display the same at their branches.

6. ADDITIONAL INTEREST PAYABLE

i) While the banks have been permitted to offer, at their discretion,   additional interest not exceeding 1% and  ½ %  per annum on the saving bank deposits and current account deposits respectively, the discretionary provisions generally lead to increase in the cost of deposits. The banks should, therefore, endeavour :

(a) not to pay any additional interest on the saving bank accounts   over and above what is payable by commercial banks ; and

(b)  not to pay interest on current accounts.

6.2 To Bank's Staff and their Exclusive Associations

6.3 To Managing Director/Chief Executive of the Bank
