With the rise of internet usage and accessibility, opening a fixed deposit account at banks has become easier. Financial institutions now provide services through websites or mobile apps owing to technological improvements.

Nowadays, completing an online form and submitting a few essential documents allows you to invest from the comfort of your home.

Since you can avoid long lines and easily access your money whenever needed, starting an FD online is becoming increasingly popular. Some banks even provide speedier processing time and competitive interest rates.
