Hence along with these it offers other benefits like bill payments and mobile recharge..
As everything is available online, ICICI bank has trimmed services you rarely use and compensated you with a few additional features as listed below:
1. Higher earnings
How much money should you keep in savings account? Financial planners advise to keep up to 3 months of expenses as contingency fund. However this amount would differ from person-to-person depending on the individual risk appetite. Let's take a case study - Ramesh Kumar has an impressive education background and is quite successful in his software career. Within 3 years of working, he takes home a decent salary of Rs. 80,000 per month. his expenses amount to Rs 40,000 a month and he saves Rs 40,000 per month, which he prudently invests for the future. Today, he maintains Rs. 1,20,000 in his salary account as contingency funds. Since this money is meant for contingency situations, liquidity is important and hence he doesn't park this money in fixed deposits. This being a savings account, the bank offers an interest rate of 3.5% and he earns Rs. 4,200 annually.
Ramesh can earn Rs. 4,500 extra annually by splitting his contingency fund in his salary account and b2 savings account. Here is an illustration - Monthly expenses Rs. 40,000
Contingency fund equivalent to 3 times expenses Rs.1,20,000
Cash contingency fund in salary account (@3.5% per annum) Rs. 20,000
Other contingency fund in b2 savings account (@8.0% per annum) Rs. 1,00,000
Total earnings per annum Rs. 8,700
Incremental earnings per annum Rs. 4,500
