Under the ASBA scheme, what if I have taken money from my FD/OD account ?
Will I be charged INTEREST ? (Just because funds have been fetched, in this case, from FD/OD account?)
I have account with IDBI bank.

How does it work when you are paying amount tru OD /LAS account, and what is the option to select ASBA application in the case of HDFC bank.

If someone have D/P with india infoline and wants to make one line payment tru his HDFC bank (OD ) account, than what will happen.
