  2. After creating this e-RD account, the monthly deduction process has not been done. What I have to do??

    1. Hello Suneeta,

      Thanks for visiting this blog. You need to set "Standing Instructions" feature to auto-deduct monthly RD amount. Please use "Set Standing Instruction" option available as - "e-Fixed Deposit > e-RD / e-SBI Flexi Deposit >Set Standing Instruction".

      Let us know if you still find it difficult to find it.

    2. Hi,
      Had the same issue, so i set standing instruction.But what about the previous months installments? Actually i opened e-RD on 30Nov2015 and today i set STDR so dedeuction will start from 13Apr2016 till the maturity, so last 4 deductions missed. Now what should i do ?

  3. hii...
    I opened e-rd on 12th December and visited my branch on 14th December with pan.. but still the amount of rd is not deduct from my sb account. what should I do??

    1. Hi Dhaval,

      Once the eRD account opens successfully, then it deducts the first installment at the same time of account opening.

      You can first check whether your PAN is updated properly or not and if its updated in the bank records then you can cancel this RD account and open a new one.

      If you don't wish to do above then visit your home branch or any other nearby SBI branch and check with them about the issue.
