On deposits repayable after six months and where the terminal month is incomplete, interest should be paid for the completed months on a actual months basis and for the incomplete month on the actual number of days of the deposit in that month on the basis of 365 days in a year. When the deposit is repayable after six months and where the terminal month is complete, the interest should be paid on the basis of actual months completed.
