Punjab National Bank (PNB) is offering an extra 80 basis points (bps) on fixed deposits (FDs) for senior citizens who are above 80 years.

PNB is first such bank which is currently offering a higher interest rate to super senior citizens on term deposits.

“Further, Super Senior Citizens of age above 80 years shall get additional rate of interest of 80bps over applicable card rate across all maturity buckets," PNB mentioned on its website.

It further added that in case of staff members as well as retired staff members who are also Super Senior Citizens, maximum rate of interest to be allowed over applicable card rate shall be 180 bps over applicable card rate across all maturity buckets.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, banks like the State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Bank of Baroda (BoB) had introduced special fixed deposits for senior citizens where a higher interest rate was offered on FDs with tenure 5 years and above. Few of these banks are continuing these schemes even now. 

In an effort to make banking services more accessible, PNB has introduced banking services through WhatsApp for both customers and non-customers. The WhatsApp banking service will be available 24x7, including holidays, on both android and iOS-based mobile phones.
