NDB Bank Vishmitha Savings offers a loan with zero interest

Among NDB Bank’s wide-range of savings products is Vishmitha Savings - an innovative product exclusively offered by NDB Bank. Vishmitha Savings was introduced in 2007 offering its customers the benefits of obtaining an interest free loan, after the completion of one year.

It was the first time in Sri Lanka, that a savings account of this nature was introduced. NDB Bank believes that through Vishmitha, its customers will not only be able to achieve the long-term goals for which they save up for, but this will also enhance their lifestyles as Vishmitha gives its customers the option of taking an interest free loan up to 75 per cent of their average savings balance after one year.

The higher the account balance, the higher the loan option, while the available savings balance receives full interest even while the loan remains outstanding.

It also offers a super high interest rate with no restrictions on withdrawals. The initial deposit to open a Vishmitha Savings Account is Rs. 2,000/-.

The loan facility will be available every year. The loan is repayable in 12 equal monthly instalments by depositing money into the savings account. The minimum loan one can apply for is Rs. 5,000/-.

If the loan is obtained against the savings account, an amount equivalent to the average balance will be held under lien until the loan is fully settled. The same account can be operated over the under lien amount to carryout usual transactions. That’s not all, with Vishmitha; it also offers its customers to a visa enabled ATM/Debit card which gives access to their account through over 1000 Visa enabled ATM’s across the island.

It’s also important to remember that once the habit of savings is developed you will find that it comes easier to you and it can provide peace of mind, since you know that you will have a backup in difficult times.

NDB Bank believes its “Vishmitha” Savings Account is dramatically reducing the pressure on the customer unlike traditional savings as it enables its account holders spend while saving for tomorrow.
