    • Hi Ashok Kumar,
      I understand your problem you are not getting an option to chose the period or tenure I can say for your Fixed deposit which you are trying to open using internet banking.

      But Sushil there is an option in Punjab National Bank Internet Banking Interface for selecting the tenure. Which you are unable to find.

      So what I suggest you is open your internet banking account and call customer care: 1800 180 2222

      And I am sure they will help you to find it out.

      Hope this helps!

  • There is no option to select ‘Sr. Citizen Category’ in case of online opening of FDR. Further, every time I tried to open FDR online, it is giving error without any details of the error.
