What is the difference between a fixed deposit and a cumulative deposit?
In a fixed deposit scheme, the interest is payable at specified frequencies. The scheme will be convenient for persons, like pensioners, who require periodical interest payments. In a cumulative deposit scheme, the interest is payable at the time of maturity along with the principal. These schemes are suitable for persons who do not require periodical interest payments, and are looking for money multiplier schemes.
Can an NRI invest in deposits?
Non Resident Indians (NRIs) can invest in fixed deposits with public limited companies in India in certain situations. For example, if the permission to accept deposits from NRIs was already taken by the Indian company, then the investor can invest in such a deposit without taking seeking any permission separately.
However, due to operational constraints, at this moment, FundsIndia has decided not to accept investments in corporate fixed deposits from NRIs.
What is the difference between Form 15G and Form 15H?
Form 15G is meant for Resident Individuals who are below 65 years of age. Form 15H is meant for senior citizens who are 65 years of age, or more, during that financial year.
What is Form 15G/15H? Where can I access it?
Form 15G/15H is a self declaration form that can be submitted by the depositor to avoid Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) if his interest income from corporate fixed deposits is higher than Rs. 5,000, but his total income is below the taxable limit. This form does not require any attestation, except in the case of a left hand thumb impression. In this case, the form has to be attested by a gazetted officer/bank official. Form 15G/15H can be accessed from the ‘Downloads’ section of your account.
On the submission of Form 15G/15H, will there be any query from the income tax department?
Since one copy of the Form 15G/15H is required to be sent to the income tax department, it is possible that the department may raise a query, if they deem it necessary.
