Google Pay FD Scheme Announced

Google Pay has partnered with Equitas Small Finance Bank to offer FDs on its platform. The tech giant says opening an FD on Google Pay is as simple as making a UPI payment. Do note, this feature is currently limited to Android users on Google Pay. iOS support could arrive in the coming weeks.

Going into the details, the Equitas Small Finance Bank says the deposits get a guarantee of up to Rs. 5 lakh per depositor. The bank is offering up to 6.35 percent for an FD of one year. This makes the Google Pay FD scheme substantially higher than many other savings options. Moreover, users don't even need to have a savings account with the Equitas Small Finance Bank.

"In an industry-first, consumers can through the Google Pay app book high-interest rate FDs fully digitally - without needing to open savings account with Equitas Bank on its own Spot integrated with the Google Pay platform," the Bank said in a statement.

Google Pay FD depositors can check their money, track their deposits, and add new ones using the Equitas Bank Spot.
