Ujjivan Senior Citizen Account is offering an interest rate of 8.5% p.a. on Fixed deposits less than 1 crore for 1-2 years. Samit Ghosh, MD and CEO, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank said this product will soon be expanded to other markets as well.

This product is a direct offshoot of the need and gap analysis which emerged from the research."
