  1. Dear Suresh,

    Thanks for your endless efforts you survey the market for people like me and others who are on this site, I had a query I am an NRI and saw thise FD companies like Unitch Ltd,DHFL, Rosoya Protiens and Gitanjali can I invest in this companies and how do I contact them and what precautions should I take before opening a FD scheme with these companies, what would be the minimum and maximum amount I need to invest with them.

    Kindly do reply to my email address [email protected]


    1. David, You can refer the prospectus about whethr NRI’s are allowed to invest in it or not. Company FD’s are little risky, you should keep this in mind before investing. Prospectus has all the details about how to invest. If you observe, I analyse all latest FD products which are coming up now and then and provide the analysis and process on how to apply them. There is no maximum amount or limit to invest. You SHOULD invest in more than 1 company if you are investing in any such company FD’s so that your risk is diversified.

  2. Dear suresh,

    I am NRI, i have 2 lakhs in my NRI account.

    please suggest me which is the best and safe investment plan ?

    Also suggest me, which is the best child future plan ?



  3. Dear Suresh , Thanks for all the rich info on your site, i try and learn from it.i have a small question. i have about 2 lk in citibk and 1lk in yes bk , and 1 lk in bk of baroda , i was thinking of putting these amts in the same respective,banks for FD's for a year by breaking the principle amnts into 20k each. i was not sure if this is a good idea plus i am not sure if i should maintain my ac with citibank as they have increased min balance to 2 lakhs for savings ac but since its a foreign bank i thought good to keep a ac there. would have any guidance on if the FD's are a good idea or any other suggestions. 


    Appreciate your reply in advance


    1. Rahul, Min balance in Citi bank is Rs 2 Lakhs ? Some thing is wrong. It might be Rs 2,000. What is your objective of breaking them into Rs 20K each. Your 4L would split into 20 deposits. If you want to do this so that in future if you want to use a specific amount, you need to break all the amount ? Other than this reason, I do not see any advantage. Your current break-up should be ok. 

  4. Dear Sir,

    I am regular reader of your articles and find them very useful. However, request you to kindly include IDBI bank FD rates also in your list.
