The early closing penalty applies to retail term deposits/fixed deposits and is imposed at 1% for fixed deposits. IDFC First Bank has stated on its website that “In case of early closing of the Term/Fixed Deposit, interest will be paid based on the interest rate applicable at the time of booking the Term/Fixed Deposit, for the corresponding period for which the deposit has remained with the bank. In addition, a term/fixed deposit, if closed early, would be subject to the Premature Closure Penalty as prescribed by the Bank on the date of deposit.”
