Top 5 Banks Promising Good Returns On Tax Saving Fixed Deposits In 2021

|

Among the debt category those investors having lower tax brackets want to seek tax benefits under section 80C of the Income Tax Act with a blend of assured returns in the form of regular income, tax-saving fixed deposits are undoubtedly a must to invest. These deposits have 5-years of lock-in period and as a result, no premature withdrawals are allowed which investors need to keep in mind before investing.

 

For investors who are unfamiliar with the stock market, mutual funds, or have a low-risk appetite, tax-saving fixed deposits are always preferred because they not only provide tax benefits and fixed returns, but the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC), a subsidiary of the RBI, also cover their deposits of up to Rs 5 lakh. Hence, by keeping all the above factors in mind, here we have compiled the top 5 banks in India that are now offering higher interest rates on tax-saving fixed deposits to both regular and senior citizens.

Note: Interest Rates On 5-Year Tax Saving Fixed Deposit Are Highlighted In Bold.
