The Karnataka Vikas Grameena Bank (KVGB), a Dharwad-based regional rural bank, has launched a 1,111-day deposit scheme.

While launching the ‘Vikas Siri Sampat-1111’ scheme in Dharwad on Friday, P Gopi Krishna, Chairman, said the 1,111-day deposit gives 5.70 percent interest to the general public and 6.20 percent to senior persons. A minimum of ten thousand rupees and a maximum of two crore rupees can be placed under the scheme.

Gopi Krishna advised customers to take advantage of the improved interest rate because it is only available for a short time.

The bank has 629 branches in the Karnataka districts of Dharwad, Gadag, Haveri, Belagavi, Bagalkot, Vijayapura, Uttara Kannada, Udupi, and Dakshina Kannada.
