Our take on the deposits
The 10 years deposits are suitable for those looking at a very long term. Interest rates in the economy are headed lower and hence investing in the deposit maybe a good idea, as you would be locking money in a deposit for the long term.
Inflation in the economy is falling and in all probability the Reserve Bank of India may cut interest rates going forward. This makes the deposits a good bet against falling interest rates. You would have locked-in at higher rates should interest rates keep falling.
A good time to buy the fixed deposit for the long term, especially considering the good yields.
