    5 Best Fixed Deposits With The Highest Interest Rates

    |

    Interest rates on fixed deposits in 2015 have dropped by almost 0.75 per cent to 1 per cent, as the Reserve Bank of India has cut interest rates or repo rates.

    With a drop in inflation, the country's central bank has dropped repo rates by 125 basis points or 1.25 per cent. This has led to a drop in lending rates, as also a drop in fixed deposit interest rates.

    5 Best Fixed Deposits With The Highest Interest Rates
    Over the last one month, it has become extremely difficult to get interest rates of over 8.5 per cent, in a bank deposit. However, there are a few places, where you could still get high yields on fixed deposits.
     

    Take a look at some of the best fixed deposits with highest interest rates in India:

    1) RBL Bank

    RBL Bank was formally known as Ratnakar Bank. It is soon slated to go public sometime later next year. The bank's fixed deposits are one of the best in the banking industry. Take a look at how the RBL Bank fixed deposits compare over various tenures:


    12 months 24-36 months 36-60 months
    8.50% 8.75% 9.00%

    A 9 per cent interest would be the best among banks, unless you are also comparing the smaller cooperative banks. With interest rates falling, it would be a good idea to lock money in Ratnakar Bank fixed deposits at 9 per cent. Interestingly, with compounding, the yields can go as high as 9.84 per cent on the 36 month deposits.

    2) Bandhan Bank Fixed Deposits

    Bandhan Bank is the newest bank on the block, after getting approval from the Reserve Bank of India last year. The bank was started earlier this year. Like RBL Bank, Bandhan Bank's fixed deposits are the best bank fixed deposits in the country in terms of interest rates.

    12 months 24-36 months 36 months
    8.50% 8.50% 8.25%

    3) Mahindra Finance Fixed Deposits

    5) Shriram Transport Finance Corporation

    Shriram Transport Finance Corporation offers an interest rate of 8.65 per

    cent for 36 months. This is pretty good considering present rates of interest. The 12 and 24 months tenure come with slightly lower interest rates.

    12 months 24 months 36 months
    8.42% 8.42% 8.65

    Conclusion 

    Interest rates in the economy are falling. It's time investors invested in the best fixed deposits with high interest rates for a longer tenure. We wish to emphasize again that interest rates in the next one year could fall further. Hence, place deposits for a period of atleast 2-3 years. This would help, if you have interest falling in the years to come.
