4 Best Special FD Schemes For Senior Citizens To End On September 30, 2021

|

Banks had lowered interest rates in the wake of the Covid-19 epidemic since last year. Senior folks who rely on a steady stream of income have been hurt the hardest by the current low-interest-rate environment. For older folks, bank fixed deposits have traditionally been a viable trend. As a result, in May 2020, a senior citizen special fixed deposit (FD) scheme was issued by some leading banks of India in an attempt to uphold senior citizens' earnings throughout the emergence of the Covid-19 epidemic. Banks, including SBI, ICICI Bank, and HDFC Bank, provide elderly citizens special rates on deposits of five years or more. These banks grant an additional 50 basis points above the standard bank FD rates under their senior citizen special FD scheme. However, according to the official websites of these banks, the senior citizen savings scheme will be phased down on September 30, 2021. So now let's know about the special fixed deposit schemes of these banks.
