Fixed deposits that have long been a safe bet for most of the traditional investors have in today's arena lost much of their sheen due to other safer investment bets providing far better returns.

Banks Hike FD Interest Rates
Nonetheless, some of the major banks have revised their FD interest rates for different maturity baskets. All in all for FDs with shorter maturity term, rates have been reduced or lowered down by as much as 25-50 basis points. 1 basis point is one hundredth of a percentage. While, rates have been revised upwards in case of FDs with higher maturity term.

Few of the banks that have made the revision with FD rates are provided here:

How upward revision in FD rates can profit you?

Though it is a time when interest rates are constantly falling, ideally you shouldn't be making an FD investment. Nevertheless if FDs interests you as a safe instrument, make a better choice in respect of the return as to which maturity term fetches you higher returns. Alternatively, without compromising on the standing and overall worthiness of the bank, you can also look for FD offerings by new banks with higher rate of interest.
