4 Special FD Schemes For Senior Citizens Which They Can Avail Before June 30, 2021

|

Senior citizens' fixed deposit (FD) schemes have now been extended until June 30, 2021. Some banks, such as State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC, ICICI, and Bank of Baroda (BoB), had launched special FD schemes for senior citizens for a tenure of 5 years and more in May 2020, amid the Covid-19 pandemic and declining interest rates. All of these banks have extended the deadline for senior citizens seeking to invest in a bank FD for the long term until June 30, 2021. State Bank of India (SBI), Bank of Baroda, ICICI Bank, and HDFC Bank, four of India's largest commercial banks, have launched special fixed deposit schemes for senior citizens. Although standard FD schemes provide an additional 0.5 percent interest to depositors over the age of 60, special FD schemes for senior citizens provide a higher rate of interest. For the scheme's period, the additional rate will be valid on all new and renewed deposits. There is an annual rate of interest on senior citizen deposits under the special FD scheme, in addition to the current rate of 0.50 percent. For deposits for more than 5 years, an additional interest rate of 0.80 percent or more will be given.
