Interest rates on short term deposits
Short-term deposits of banks are meant for risk-averse individuals who intend to liquidate their investment in a maximum investment horizon of 6 months- 1 years time. In a move to battle, liquidity concerns in the system, several banks have revised interest rates upwards on short term deposits to mobilize funds. And as the cost of funds for short-term borrowing for banks has risen, banks prefer to deploy funds from general public at a lower rate.

So, in the expectation that high rates on short term deposits would continue to be offered for a couple of months, retail investors can lock in their money in these deposits.

The lists include the interest rate being offered by different banks on short-term deposits for deposit amount less than Rs 1 crore and above:
