    I wish to take a loan against my fixed deposit in SBI bank. Total deposit is Rs. 1 Lakh.
    I wish to avail a loan of Rs. 75,000. At the end of the year, what is the amount I will be paying as interest to the bank? My understanding is 1% on Rs. 75,000 or Rs.750 is what I pay end of the year. Is my understanding correct, provided I pay in time whatever is my yearly EMI?
    Can you explain if I have not understood the concept loan against FD @ 1% ( Rs.750/-)
    Is that my only liability or is there some thing else?
