To encourage people to go for Covid-19 jabs, Punjab and Sind Bank (PSB) has launched a special deposit scheme, called PSB Swasth Bharat TD Scheme. Under this scheme this bank is offering additional interest rate of 15 basis points on term deposits for those who get vaccinated. A few months earlier Central Bank of India also launched a similar special scheme for vaccinated customers.
Any Indian resident individual who has got at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine can take advantage of this scheme. Fixed deposits can be made for a period of two years to less than three years.
PSB Swasth Bharat TD Scheme is a limited period scheme and valid up to December 31, 2021. Senior citizens are also eligible for extra interest as applicable.
