  • Business bank accounts in India
The current account is the most popular business account in India. It is most commonly used by both businesses large and small. With these accounts there is no limit on the amount of transactions that occur during the day, the only obvious rule is that the funds must be available in the account for the transaction to be made.

There is no interest paid by the bank, too, on the current account balance. Cash credit accounts are popular, too. These accounts work where the bank actually lends money against the security of commodities. This is essentially like a loan, and if the business that takes out the loan does not or is unable to make the repayment as agreed then the bank will have the right to take commodities and assets worth the same as the repayment.
