In this article we are going to cover what is loan against fixed deposit and some of the underlying facts about it.
Loan against fixed deposit is a secured loan and usually banks give up to 90% of the money deposited. Rate of interest on loan will be 1 or 2% above the deposit interest rate. The period of loan will be up to the date of maturity of the deposit. In some cases, loan against deposit can be considered only after completion of certain period and this varies from banks to bank.

Application process will be simpler and doesn’t mater even if your CIBIL score is low. In order to avail the loan, you have to visit the branch and fill up the application for loan against deposit.
