How To Open FD Without Opening Savings Account At ICICI BANK

How To Open FD Without Opening Savings Account


Investing in FDs helps in saving money for the future. However, not everyone wants to take the traditional route of opening an FD through Savings Account. Fortunately, ICICI Bank offers the flexibility to open FDs without the necessity of having an ICICI Bank Savings Account. Now, you can open an FD with ICICI Bank if you have a Savings Account in any Indian bank. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of opening an FD with ICICI Bank without having to open an ICICI Bank Savings Account.

Understanding Fixed Deposits

Before we get into the specifics of how to open a Fixed Deposit without having an ICICI Bank Account, let us quickly understand what Fixed Deposits are and why they are a preferred choice for many investors.

Fixed Deposits are investment instruments where investors deposit a sum of money in a bank for a fixed period, ranging from a few days to several years, at a predetermined interest rate. At the end of the maturity period, investors receive the principal amount along with the interest earned. FDs are known for their safety, assured returns and relatively low-risk nature, making them an attractive option for conservative investors.

Advantages of ICICI Bank FDs


  • FDs are known for their safety, offering minimal risk to the principal amount.

  • Unlike investments vulnerable to market fluctuations, FDs provide stability. The interest rate remains consistent throughout the tenure, ensuring a predictable return.

  • With FDs, investors can calculate returns in advance, facilitating easier financial planning. The predetermined interest rates and maturity periods provide clarity on the final amount upon maturity.

  • ICICI Bank offers FDs with flexible tenures, ranging from 6 months to 10 years. This flexibility enables investments to align with specific financial goals and liquidity requirements.

  • ICICI Bank offers competitive FD interest rates, reaching up to 7.2% (7.75% for senior citizens). These rates are structured to promote steady growth of invested capital.
