How does one get an instant FD Account, through ICICI Bank’s iMobile Pay app?
August 18, 2021
To plan our financial future, we all look towards many investment avenues, in order to save and grow our money. One such avenue that is very popular is a Fixed Deposit, wherein you need to deposit a fixed amount of funds in an account, for a specific period of time. An interest rate is also pre decided for the amount. Once the Fixed Deposit reaches maturity, you can withdraw it along with the interest.
Thus, you get the benefit of interest, along with increasing your money. You can use a Fixed Deposit for any financial goal, like buying a house, buying a car, paying for your child’s education etc.
Today, you can open a Fixed Deposit simply by launching ICICI Bank’s iMobile Pay app on your smartphone. You do not need to visit the Bank or go through any paperwork. Simply log in to the ICICI Bank iMobile Pay app, and you can open an FD, instantly.
