     Why Loans Against a Fixed Deposit is a Good Idea?
    Let's say you have a fixed deposit of Rs 5 lakhs that carries an interest rate of 9.5 per cent. You can borrow against the same at an interest rate of 10.5 per cent.

    Why Loans Against Fixed Deposit is Beneficial?

    If you take a personal loan the interest rate could be as high as 14-24 per cent depending on various parameters. On the other hand if you take a loan against a fixed deposit it could be just 1 per cent more than the contracted rate on the deposit. You may end-up saving a huge sum of money by taking a loan against a fixed deposit.

    Secondly, you can get a loan without a problem, which makes them getting very easy as compared to a personal loan.

    The only hiccup is that one must have adequate deposits to help in getting the financial support when needed.
