OD – Overdraft
With “overdraft” facility in your current account, you may withdraw money more than your account balance. For example, you have given a cheque of Rs. 15 lakh to someone and you have only Rs. 12 lakh balance in your account. Now, if you have more than 3 lakh overdraft limit in your account, that cheque would be cleared with “3 lakh” overdrawn from your account.
It is kind of a small loan given for a short period of time. Some banks don’t even charge any interest on the overdrawn money. For an overdraft facility you must have a good past record with the bank.
