Difference between salary account vs Savings account?
For most of us, a salary account is our first bank account. A salary account is really just a savings account. You deposit money, and the bank pays you interest. Often, banks let you pay into the account. A salary account is special because it pays you interest, and the money you earn is tax-free (limited).
Salary accounts are different from current accounts because the money you put in a salary account is your money. You own it, and you can keep or invest it in any way you want. For a salary account to be a savings account, you have to be able to withdraw your money at any time.
If you are in the habit of withdrawing money from a salary account every month, you are probably saving. But if you withdraw your money less often, you are probably not saving. If you tend to spend small deposits, you are probably spending. If you want, you can even put the money in your salary account on a credit card. A salary account is a kind of savings account, but a savings account is not the same kind of bank account as a salary account.
