There are N number of schemes and plans that India’s largest public sector bank, the State Bank Of India or SBI offers. One such scheme is the SBI Annuity Deposit Scheme, which requires a one-time investment to offer the accumulated pool of funds along with applicable interest in equated monthly investments or EMI. So, if a person calculates the difference between the invested amount and the sum of the amount received in EMIs, the variation will be much higher. In this scheme, minors can also invest and the mode of holding the account can be individually or jointly.
