    Me and my wife are both senior citizen. We need about Rs.30,000/M return on our investment on a regular basis. The investments should be safe and preferably in Government schemes. How much money we need to invest at a time and where? Thanks.

    Sir, I have 16 Lakhs in my account inherited from my grandmom and want to keep the same in FD for a shorter period say 7 to 14 days only. I will prefer either SBI or Indian Bank as the ROI offered is around 7% up to 14 days and they are Public Sector Banks. My question is that whether the interest earned within this 7-14 days will be taxable and if it taxable then what will be the taxable amount???? I come under general income tax slab of 250000 Rs….Kindly revert. Thanks…..

    Can you update the latest FD interest rates applicable and can a FD be started for new born if so what documents are required and how it is evaluated from tax perspective.

    Thanks always,

    • Rajanandan,You can open a joint account between a minor child and you. However any interest received on such FD would attract “clubbing provisions of income tax” and you need to pay necessary income tax.  Regarding other question about latest FD rates, I have written it and it is in que to be posted in next week.
