Tell me about Current Account
A current account functions quite the same as a savings account and a fixed deposit, whereby you will earn interest based on the amount of money that you stash into the account.
With a current account, you can have the chance to earn high interest on your savings. This means that the more cash you have in your account, the higher the interest you get to earn.
