In order to encourage people to get Covid-19 jabs, the government has taken various steps. In accordance with the government’s stand, a few banks have also launched special deposit schemes where vaccinated citizens will get an additional interest rate on fixed deposits. Immune India Deposit Scheme is one of these schemes offered by the Central Bank of India. On the other hand, Punjab and Sind Bank, another public sector lender, has also recently launched Swasth Bharat TD Scheme. Both are limited period schemes and valid up to December 31, 2021.
An account can be opened with a minimum amount of Rs 1,000. The maximum limit is less than Rs 2 crore.
There are some differences between these two schemes. So, it is important to know all the details before selecting anyone.
