Step 7:

Here you need to know the difference between TDR and STDR.

TDR stands for “Term Deposit Receipt” and STDR stands for “Special Term Deposit Receipt”.

Simply, if you are depositing a Fixed Deposit (FD) for a short time period, then you have to select the TDR option. In which, you can open a fixed deposit for a period ranging from 7 days to 10 years.

In the case of STDR, you cannot invest for the short-term period, you need to hold the investment for a Minimum period of 180 days and up to a Maximum of 10 years.

Step 8:

Now you will get 4 options to open your Fixed Deposit in SBI.

1. Fixed deposit (e-TDR /e-STDR)
In this, you can open your Fixed Deposit for a period of less than 5 years.

2. e-TDR /e-STDR Under Income Tax Savings Scheme
In this option, you have to hold your Fixed Deposit for at least 5 years.

3. e-TDR /e-STDR Multi option deposit (MOD).
In this option, you can open both Term deposit and Special Term Deposit (STD). Whereas, the tenure starts from year 1 and lasts up to 5 years.

Now, if you want to make a short-term fixed deposit for a period of less than 5 years, then, select the 1st option of “Fixed deposit”

And click on the “Proceed” button.

Step 10:

Here the account number from which you want to create a Fixed Deposit will be selected as default. Now, in the “Amount” column, enter the amount you want to make as FD.

Here through TDR or STDR, you can deposit a Minimum amount of Rs.1,000/- and a Maximum of Rs. Up to 1 crore.

Step 11:

If you are a Senior Citizen (i.e.Aged 60 years or more), then put a Tick on to get additional interest. If you are not a Senior citizen i.e. less than 60 years aged person, then, skip this option.

Now you should select your FD option.
In the case of STDR, you will be paid Cumulative interest for your FD Maturity time. Select this option if you are planning to deposit for the Long term period, so you will get more interest.

In the 2nd Option of TDR, If you are planning for Short term period, you can select it.
In this option, the Interest payment will be made on a Non-cumulative basis. So you will get less interest as compared to STDR.
