The contracted rate of interest on the matured TD, whichever is lower.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has amended the norms as per which unclaimed maturity proceeds of term deposits (TDs) with banks will attract the rate of interest as applicable to savings accounts or the contracted rate of interest on the matured TD, whichever is lower.

As per the current rules, if a term deposit matures and proceeds are unpaid, the amount left unclaimed with the bank shall attract a rate of interest as applicable to savings deposits.

"On a review of these instructions, it has been decided that if a Term Deposit (TD) matures and proceeds are unpaid, the amount left unclaimed with the bank shall attract a rate of interest as applicable to a savings account or the contracted rate of interest on the matured TD, whichever is lower," the RBI said in a circular.

He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree.
