Should a bank deny senior citizen rate of interest on a FD after the death of a senior citizen?



My father died at 86. He had a FD in a schedule bank which matured 6 months after his death. The bank has given interest at agreed rate upto date of death, but disallowed the extra 0.5% given to senior citizen on FDs after his death on the ground that he was no more a senior citizen after death. Is the bank right in holding that ground?
