Zero Balance, Maximum Benefits


One of the standout features of Kotak811 is its zero balance requirement. Traditional banks often mandate a minimum balance, penalising customers who might not maintain it consistently. Kotak811 eliminates this hurdle, and ensures customers' money works smarter for them without any strings attached. Whether a seasoned saver or just starting a financial journey, the freedom from minimum balance constraints is a big plus.


Earn up to 7% Interest p.a.


Interest rates on savings accounts often hover around the 2-3% mark, providing nominal returns that cannot keep pace with today's inflation. Kotak811 disrupts this norm by offering an impressive interest rate of up to 7% with its ActivMoney feature. This higher rate ensures money not only stays secure but also grows at a pace that outpaces many traditional savings options.


Flexible deposits can be automatically moved into the savings account without any commitment to a lock-in period. This is done to cover any shortfall of funds. Excess funds that exceed the limit of ₹25,000 are directed appropriately. Kotak811's ActivMoney facility ensures optimal utilisation of funds by booking them in multiples of ₹5,000. Once the amount of ActivMoney is transferred, the interest gets credited every 180 days, maximising the earning potential.
