The Sweep-In facility enables customers to link existing Term Deposit to Savings or Current Accounts held with the bank. In case of an emergency, the shortfall in the account is swept in from the linked Term Deposit in the units of Rs. 1/-, thereby giving customers the convenience of getting payments processed with ease.
Let's take an example to illustrate how the Sweep-In facility works: Mr. Ramesh has availed Sweep-In facility on his existing Term Deposit of ₹50,000/- held with the bank. Let’s assume that on a particular day, the balance in his Savings Account is ₹30,000/-, and he issues a cheque for ₹50,000/- in his account and it has now come for clearing. In this instance the shortfall of ₹20,000 (Account Balance – Obligation Amount issued as a cheque), will be utilized from the linked FD account to clear the cheque.
