After all interest in interest only shows that one wants to increase his 
welfare to enjoy the worldly pleasures,and gets bound by that.

Hare Krishna

What about brAmin's F.D.s, R.D.s  & other deposits in Banks & post 
offices, I think even our SB a/cs also attracting some rate of interest 
annually is it not ??  These transactions also to be shunned totally?? And 
what about, taking housing & personal loans &  ' paying interest' by 
brAhmaNa-s :-)) .  If the second one is not permitted in dharma shAstra-s, 
then I am ready to follow it, and will not give any interest nor principal 
amount  :-))  but who will give me the bail :-))  More seriously, without 
scratching our heads much about these dharma sUkshma-s, it is better to 
treat all these things as part and parcel of our materialistic life  and 
try to concentrate more on our adhyAtmika sAdhana with shraddha & bhakti 
towards almighty. 

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
