What is the difference between Current Account and Savings Account?
Both are deposit accounts whereby you can keep your money in a trusted hand of the bank. Current Account, particularly, provides you more freedom in managing your cash flow daily.
Some Current Accounts allow for you to borrow cash up to a certain limit even though you have used up all of your deposit. To open a Current Account, however, requires you to have a big enough capital or be a Premier banking customer.
