Question: Last year I had given zakath for bank deposit. Please clear my doubts that is may I must give zakath from bank deposit amount in this year.
Answer:

As long as you have the money saved in the bank you ought to pay Zakah on it every year. However, if the money is invested in shares that are considered as capital investments then you need to pay Zakah only on the dividends you receive every year.
