What is a savings account?
A savings account is the most common form of an interest-generating deposit account which is held with a bank or NBFC that provides a reasonable rate of interest for money deposited into the account by the customer.
Why should you open a savings account?
A savings account is a safe way to store money while earning interest on the money deposited. It is easy to open and operate. Having a savings account makes the money easily available to you. Thus, your savings account also serves as an emergency fund.
Commonly known features of a savings account:
Save your money: It is advisable for customers to keep money in Savings Account so that they earn at least a minimum amount of interest from the funds earmarked for their day to day expenses.
Quick access and easy withdrawal: Savings accounts are also one of the most liquid forms of investment This means, while you are saving and making sure your money grows, you also have easy and direct access to it, in case of emergency or any other need.
With a savings account, one gets access to Debit Card and Digital platforms such as Mobile banking & Net Banking which enables a person to enjoy cashless transactions.
Funds for a rainy-day: As a rule of thumb, financial experts recommend that customers have enough savings in their rainy-day fund to be able to cover three-six months of bills. However, it is important to note that several analysts recommend keeping excess money in higher interest generating Savings accounts.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is meant by Average Monthly Balance requirement?
AMB is the average of all the closing-day balances in a given month. This balance is the specified amount that a customer must have in savings account to receive some service benefits, such as receiving interest.
How Savings Account Average Monthly Balance (AMB) is calculated?
To calculate the AMB, add each day's end-of-the-day balance in your savings account and divide it by the number of days in that month.
AMB = (Sum of all the EOD closing balances) / (number of days in a month)
Assuming, a savings account AMB requirement is Rs 10,000:
On January 1, the balance in the savings account is Rs 10,000.
On January 12, withdrawal of Rs 4,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 6,000.
On January 18, deposit of Rs 10,000 takes place. EOD balance is Rs 17,000.
Summing up the EOD balances: For 11 days-from July 1 to July 12-sum of EOD balance will be Rs (10,000*11) = Rs 1,10,000
From July 12 to July 18, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (6,000*6) = Rs 36,000
From July 18 to July 31, sum of EOD balances will be Rs (17,000*13) = Rs 2,21,000.
Sum of all the EOD closing balances = Rs 3,67,000
Total number of days in July = 31
So, the minimum average balance will be 204000/31 i.e. Rs 11,838.70
