What is Platinum Deposit Scheme?
Under the scheme, citizens can avail additional interest up to 0.15% for term deposits of 75 days, 75 weeks, and 75 months.
Moreover, under the Special Scheme given in it, citizens can choose 75 days, 525 days, and 2,250 days time under which additional interest can be charged on investment.
They have been kept away from the scheme
Recurring deposits, tax saving deposits, annual deposits MACAD deposits, multi-option deposits, and capital gains schemes will not get the benefit from the scheme. On the other hand, NRE and NRO deposits of senior citizens and staff have also been kept away from it.
