    Are small finance bk covered under deposit insurance..?

  • Uday C

    Hi Mr. Suresh,
    Like to know more about Utkarsh Small Fin Bank, HO Varanasi.

    Rgrds

    • Hello Uday, Small Finance banks would still come under RBI perview. Investing in Small finance bank FDs are little risky as these are still new. However since there is deposit insurance up to Rs 5 Lakhs for all banks including small finance banks, you can invest in them if you are moderate risk investor.

      • Subramanian

        Sir,
        These banks are governed by RBI and also are obligated to list.
        How can these be termed as risky

        Regards

        • These are not banks. These are NBFCs. For Banks, there is deposit insurance of up to Rs 5 Lakhs if bank gets closed for some reason. But in NBFC there is nothing like deposit insurance. These are just governed by RBI, if NBFC closes (like DHFL), investor would get their money back after company is completely closed. Take an example of DHFL. There are several investors who are still commenting in this blog now that after DHFL scam, the closure process is still not done and investos are waiting for their deposits / NCD investments back. This is the risk what I am calling out in company fixed deposits.

    Hi mr Suresh KP
    After Your Message , you are giving previous Messages copies , on various Companies FD Schemes..Like Tamilnadu Power, ICICI Home Finance, KTDC etc

    These previous messages are OLD ones and show OLD FD Rate – which are not Relevant in today’s scenario..
    This Creates some confusion to regular readers..
    Suggestion :-1) Either give Current FD Rates
    2) Or if that is not feasible – at least pls DO NOT reproduce these OLD Messages

    A request from me ..I am a regular reader of this column..

    Your Current Messages are really helpful to investors

    Thanking you

    • Hello Ramakrishna, These are google ads. We are not able to remove old data from this as these are automatically filtered without any control from our side. We would continue to review this to see if we can make any change if Google makes this change from their side

  • Pranav

    Bajaj is providing 0.1% extra for regular individuals if one is getting the FD online.
    You might want to add it for the benefit of everyone.

  • Ketan Doshi

    Always love to all your articles….keep it up…

    Want to know….for an wise investments….how many SIPs can be called idle….(4 or 5 etc…)??

    • Thanks Ketan. I can have 5 to 7 equity mutual funds (excluding any liquid funds or debt funds which are generally kept for short term). The idea of having these any funds are considering largecap, multicap and balanced funds variants we have. If there are high risk investors, they can add few more more from midcap and small cap funds.
