As earlier stated, the chief services of KSFE consists of chitty, loans and deposit schemes. Chit fund is a popular type of savings scheme where a group of people contribute towards the chit value periodically for a duration. The savings and credit product under KSFE starts with an installment of Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,00,000 each month. The duration can be 30 to 100 months. The installment amount can be paid through Internet Banking, or via cash or cheque at the nearest branch. People in an entire group get the opportunity to win the “prize money”. The payout will go to one who agrees to take lowest amount. There will be a lot drawn if more than one person bids for the amount. The discount in the payout is distributed among chitty members. KSFE takes a 5% commission on the prize money.
For NRIs, KSFE operates a separate KSFE Pravasi Chitty. If someone has won the chitty, KSFE will require that they provide a collateral. Securities accepted can be fixed deposits, short term deposits, LIC policy, bank guarantee, Kissan Vikas Patra, national savings certificates, NRI deposits, and property related title deeds or security. Participants can get higher returns on winning the prize money early. And if you are dire need of money, KSFE provides loans through Chitty Pass Book Loan and Chitty Loan.
