Traditional banks provide a feature where we can link our FD to the savings account and whenever there is insufficient balance, the FD would be broken on making a transaction.
For example, we have linked a FD of Rs.30,000/- to the savings account and Savings account has a balance of Rs.7000/-.
Now if I make a transaction of Rs.15,000/-, the insufficient balance of Rs.8,000/- which is not in Savings account will be withdrawn from the linked FD.
In the same way, Jupiter can allow to link their POTS to the Savings account and whenever we are making a bill payment, providing an option to pay bills from the saved POT will make the process smoother.
Because, we create POTS for quarterly/half-yearly/annual payments every month.
And when the due date comes, we have to break the POT manually and make the payments.
Instead if such feature where we can make the payment from POTS is provided, it would be too good.
I know POTS create a Virtual RD with the partner bank and direct payment is not possible.
But you can always route it through Savings account instead of manually going to respective POT and breaking such POT and then make the payment.
Would like to know other members opinion and also the Jupiter team’s view as well if this is possible. @Shawnpinto
Yes. Pots shouldn’t be broken manually.
Because, for example we have insurance premium where we pay it annually and we set the every month habit for it.
At the end of the year, pot is broken and we have to create new pot for next year again.
Instead, if there’s an option to continue with the same pot, that would be better and of course, the interest will be paid at the rate selected at the time of creation of the pot itself.
