The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) recently announced raising the bulk fixed deposit limit to Rs 3 crore from the earlier Rs 2 crore. So, now your FDs worth up to Rs 3 crore will fall into the retail FDs category. Anything exceeding this limit will be labelled as a bulk FD. Earlier, FDs of Rs 2 crore were considered as bulk deposits.

“The bulk deposits limit was enhanced in the year 2019 for Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs) (excluding Regional Rural Banks) and Small Finance Banks (SFBs) as ‘Single Rupee term deposits of Rs 2 crore and above’. In a review, it is proposed to revise the definition of bulk deposits as ‘Single Rupee term deposits of Rs 3 crore and above’ for SCBs (excluding RRBs) and SFBs. Further, it is also proposed to define the bulk deposit limit for Local Area Banks as ‘Single Rupee term deposits of Rs 1 crore and above’ as applicable in case of RRBs. Necessary guidelines will be issued shortly,” the RBI said on review of limit of bulk deposits for scheduled commercial banks (excluding RRBs), small finance banks and local area banks.
