2 Large Private Banks That Offer The Best Interest Rates On Fixed Deposits


The most trusted saving destination is a bank account, particularly the Fixed Deposit (FD). The bank that offers the highest interest rate on the deposits whether it's saving or FDs is the more searched destination. Out of these two, FDs are considered the safest saving option as it comes with a low market risk that also offers a high return on the deposit.


Interest rates vary based on the bank and customers such as senior citizens and the general public. FDs are great when it comes to tax savings.

Invest for shorter term tenures in bank fixed deposits

As there is a possibility that interest rates could go higher, we recommend that investors should take the short-term tenure for bank deposits. Globally, there are risks to inflation and many central banks around the world are looking at the possibility of hiking interest rates. Therefore, investors should look at short term tenure for fixed deposits. There is the possibility that even the Reserve Bank of India could hike interest rates considering that inflation in India has begun to trend higher.
