Q. What is the tenure of the Overdraft Facility?

Your credit limit is restored as and when you make repayments. If you don’t need additional funds any more, you can close the Overdraft Facility by paying all the pending amount. If you close the account before 3 months of its approval, you will need to pay a cancellation charge.
Q. Can I get an Overdraft Facility to make investments?
A. Yes. If you are certain of getting good returns on the investment you are planning to make, and the interest charges and other fees applicable on the Overdraft Facility can be covered with the investment, then you can go ahead and invest your loan amount.
