In fact, the interest rate on the deposit is unmatched by any private or government sector bank.

    Beats interest rates offered by banks very easily

    The Interest rate on a KTDFC deposit can go as high as 10.50 per cent, if the deposit is above Rs 25 lakh. If the deposit is under Rs 25 lakh, the interest rate offered is 10.25 per cent for a one, two and three year deposit, while it falls to 10.00 per cent for a 4 and 5 year deposit. No bank (do not include cooperative banks) in the country offers these interest rates.
