Central Bank of India - Front Page advertisment

Viewers of The Hindu - Bangalore Edition, might have noticed that only a small advertisement, in the left lower corner appears frequently.
This Advertisement is by Central Bank of India, regarding it's Fixed Deposit Interest Rates.

What I liked about this concept
01) It is attractive
02) Though small, it is eye-catching.
03) The cartoon image attracts the viewer instantly.

ING Vysya Bank has launched a new Term Deposit Scheme known as ING ACTIVE DEPOSIT.
The highlights of the scheme are at the Bank’s website @

In simple terms, as I understand, the distinctive features of this Term Deposit are:
01)  This deposit allows the Depositor to earn better returns, while enjoying the power of liquidity, with the instant withdrawal feature. 
02)  ING Active Deposit facilitates the depositor to withdraw the deposit either at the ATM or through a cheque.
03)  The ING Active Deposit is broken only for the amount withdrawn, while the balance continues at the original rate.
Well as a Safe   ePayments Motivator, I would have preferred one more withdrawal option i.e NEFT via Net Banking
