Moreover, Jifi is a new age digital account which lets you avail of benefits like a Platinum Chip Debit card, access to social banking, loyalty and reward programs and much more.
Jifi is looking forward to establish across the country but currently taking one thing at a time. They are currently available in Bangalore, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune.
The ActivMoney facility helps you convert idle funds above Rs.25,000 in your Jifi account by moving it to a term deposit(TD) in multiples of Rs. 5,000. This earns a TD rate of interest depending on the tenure. The default tenure booked is 180 days. In case of a shortfall in your Jifi account, the amount (in multiples of Rs.5,000) is withdrawn from your Term Deposit, thereby giving you the convenience of getting payments processed with ease at all times.
