    The instructions were very clear. But can the RD be transferred to any other SBI or SBH account? What will happen if I stop RD in the middle? Also what are the latest interest rates?

      Dear Jaswant
      In which date you will create e-RD that date will be your monthly deposit date.Suppose you open a e-RD on 7/5/2015 then 7th will be your deposit date for e-RD (Monthly). Your money will be debited automatically from your savings account monthly if you chose standing instruction option at the time of opening e-rd.

      Hi Mano,
      There should be no confusion on it.Choose auto pay.It will debit automatically from your savings account.
      E-RD maturity amount will not credit automatically.But you can transfer with a single click.
      Don’t worry total process is very simple.
