If you park your extra funds right here, your excellent can be lower than withdrawal restrict. When you want these extra parked funds, you may withdraw them with the cheque e-book which might be issued for this account.

The association letter together with your financial institution may have the interest rate clause. Here you will notice the bottom rate talked about together with the unfold or the margin. In your case, base rate would be the RLLR. Say RLLR is 4% and unfold is 3%, your efficient rate can be 4+3=7%. Every three months, RLLR is reset. If repo rate is diminished by 20 foundation factors, RLLR can be 3.8%. However, your unfold stays 3%. Hence, new efficient rate could be 6.8%.
