While May may not herald a flurry of financial changes akin to April or March, several significant shifts await individuals, especially mutual fund investors and banking customers. Certain banks are poised to adjust charges for savings account services, while others plan to unveil surcharges on utility payments made via credit cards. Additionally, some financial institutions may announce deadlines for senior citizen fixed deposits (FDs).

As individuals navigate these impending adjustments, staying abreast of these developments is crucial to effectively managing personal finances in the month ahead. Financial institutions are set to implement a series of changes affecting savings accounts, fixed deposits (FDs), and credit card transactions.

Here’s a rundown of the key modifications taking effect:

1. Deadline for HDFC Bank’s senior citizen special FD

Investors eyeing HDFC Bank’s senior citizens-only special fixed deposit scheme have until May 10, 2024, to seize the opportunity. This scheme offers enhanced interest rates exclusively for senior citizens.

2. ICICI Bank adjusts savings account charges

Effective May 1, ICICI Bank will revise charges for various savings account services, including cheque books, Immediate Payment Service (IMPS), ECS/NACH debit returns, and stop payment requests.

3. Revisions in Yes Bank savings account charges

Yes Bank rolls out revisions in savings account charges, effective May 1. The bank will also discontinue certain account types while setting new average monthly balance (AMB) requirements for others, along with associated charges for non-maintenance.

4. Updates in Yes Bank credit card regulations

Yes Bank introduces changes to its credit card policies, excluding the ‘private’ credit card type. Notably, a 1% charge applies to all utility transactions within a statement cycle, as per the bank’s website.
