What is the ActivMoney facility?

Through this facility you can earn a much higher interest on your idle funds in the Savings Bank Account.

The idle funds from your savings account (at a pre-specified threshold limit) are transferred automatically to a term Deposit. The funds move back in to the savings account in case of funds requirements.

The advantages of this facility are:

  •         Higher rate of interest earned.
  •         You need NOT track idle funds regularly & give instructions to the bank to create Term Deposits out of Savings Account balances.
  •         Greater Flexibility & Liquidity as the funds flow back into the Savings Account if the balance in the Savings Account falls below a particular level.

How is the Average Monthly Balance (AMB) requirement calculated for savings account?

Average Monthly Balance (AMB) means that you do not have to maintain any minimum balance in your savings account.

 The balance in your account can even go down to zero on any given day. Average Monthly Balance is calculated by dividing the sum of all "End of Day" balances in a month by the number of days in that month. Thus this provides you added flexibility to use the available funds in your account.

Please refer the following illustration for the calculation of AMB.
