“Sweep In and Sweep Out” is a special facility under which a customer can deposit money in saving account but earn the interest in par with fixed deposit account. With this facility, customer can earn higher interest rate (Interest Rate @9.25%) on their deposits above NPR 2,00,000. It offers the advantage and flexibility both of fixed deposit and savings deposit in customer’s bank account. In other words, it is both Savings cum Fixed deposits account combined. The primary account of customer is a Saving nature and to provide higher interest benefit, the Fixed Deposit scheme has been combined with the product.
However, in the New SCBK it has been provided a higher interest rate from that of savings for the number of days the FFD amount is parked in fixed deposits, which would increase the effective earning as well. Thus, with this effect, if a customer decides to pre-mature the FFD due to fund requirement, the pre-mature charge applied will be 2.00% resulting effective earning from deposit of 7.75% on FFD amount in Diamond.
