Just to understand this better. If I had an average balance of, say, Rs2L in the Oct, Nov, Dec quarter, then I will get Rs3500 credited on Dec 31st. Is that the correct way of looking at this?

I would also like to know that in case the balance is above Rs1 Lakh, then the entire balance will earn 7% . E.g. if I have a balance of Rs1.5 lakh. will I earn 7% int on Rs1.5 lakh or will I earn 6% interest on Rs1lakh and 7% interest on the remaining Rs0.5 lakh

@ssrivastava You will get 6% for ₹1L & 7% for ₹50K

IDFC Bank changed SB interest rates from 1st Jan 2021 s follows,

Balance in ₹ ===============Rate of Interest (% p.a.)
<= ₹ 1 Cr ==================7.00%

₹ 1 Cr <= ₹ 5 Cr ============5.00%
₹ 5 Cr <= ₹ 10 Cr=========== 4.00%
₹ 10 Cr================== 3.50%

Niyo needs to confirm whether this is applicable to Niyo IDFC Account or not ?
