@Suraj sir doubt in question number 3 and 5th aren’t both financial institution and banks are same
Explain the difference , ? How answer differ

1. Suraj

See in ques 1 it is given who can issue COD
CDs can be issued by
(i) scheduled commercial banks {excluding Regional Rural Banks and Local Area Banks}; and
(ii) select All-India Financial Institutions (FIs) that have been permitted by RBI- (other than banks)
Fis can be like NBFC, insurance company etc

Now when a bank issues a COD and when a FI issues a COD there is difference of time period for both
Bank it is 7 days to 1 year
FI it is 1 year to 3 year
