Let's say that I invest 50K in a tax saving fixed deposit. According to my bank, it will take at least 48 hours to get an acknowledgment.

Meanwhile, can I submit my bank statement as a proof of investment as part of my year end investment declaration form?

To be a bit more clear, I have not made any investments for this financial year. My company has given a deadline of 17th Feb for submitting the investment declaration. Given the fact that I only have one more day left for my investment declaration, the only proof of investment I can show my company is my bank statement showing that I have invested 50K in an FD. Will my bank statment be accepted as a valid proof of investment or there are chances that it may be rejected?

Probably not. A debit of 50K in your Bank statement does not mean that its invested into tax saving instrument.
