State Bank of India (SBI), the largest lender in India in terms of asset volume and customer count, keeps offering innovative products, such as Multi-option Deposit Scheme (MODS), to stay in line with the changing consumer behavior. MODS is actually a term deposit scheme linked to the savings or current account of an individual.
Unlike the traditional term deposits wherein you need to liquidate fully to withdraw the accumulated sum, MODS comes with a partial withdrawal facility. This will not only help individuals meet their respective needs from the withdrawal amount but also earn them interest on the remaining balance at the designated rate. Quite an interesting offer, isn’t it? Let’s spare time to know SBI Multi-option Deposit Scheme (MODS) in detail.
