4. Thomas Cook will fund the balance amount i.e. the 13th installment to purchase your package after factoring in the accrued e-RD interest.

5. This e-RD account in INR will be generated in the name(s) of the account holder(s) as the account from which it is funded.

Premature closure of this e-RD account is allowed and the Bank's applicable premature withdrawal penalty will be applied.
