What are Cash Deposits?

Posted on November 23, 2022

A cash deposit is the money that you put into your bank account. The bank keeps your money safe for you until you decide to withdraw it. Cash deposits can be money transfers or cheques deposited in an account and don't only have to be cash. The account in which you deposit the money is a liability. However, it is an asset for the bank. It is not your asset anymore and turns into a right to money withdrawal on the terms agreed between you and the bank. 

You can generally deposit cash in two types of accounts: 

  1. Checking or current account
  2. Savings account

Different types of accounts give you different kinds of services and advantages. 

You have to pay a small amount of money as cash deposit charges in some types of current accounts. There might be a cash deposit limit per day as the rules governing transactions are getting tighter. A cash deposit limit is the maximum amount of money you can deposit in a bank account in one day. Similarly, there is a monthly and yearly cash deposit limit. Interestingly, Bandhan Bank does not have a monthly or yearly cash deposit limit. 
There are many banks around the country and the world, and everyone has their own savings and current account cash deposit limit. The cash deposit charges in current account and savings account depend on the bank you choose to bank with. Each bank has its own current account withdrawal limit per day and current account cash deposit limit per year. Similarly, each bank has its own limits for savings accounts.

  • You can find a deposit slip yourself or ask a representative at the bank for one. 
  • Fill in the necessary information on the slip, such as amount, phone number, email, account number, and name.

  • Visit your nearest ATM. 
  • Select the deposit cash option once you insert your ATM card. Enter your deposit amount, account type, and account number if you don't have your ATM card. 
  • Put your money in the deposit area.
