Tax Saving Fixed Deposits: Top 5 Private Sector Banks With Higher Interest Rates

|

Without a doubt, fixed deposits are the most secure investment for both short and long-term financial goals. However, by making a fixed deposit for a 5-year lock-in period, both regular and senior citizens can claim tax benefits on investments of up to Rs 1.5 lakhs under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. This implies that, in addition to meeting your 5-year financial target, you may also claim tax benefits on your deposits or can be claimed as tax-saving fixed deposits. The lock-in term in tax saving deposits implies that your deposit will be locked in for 5 years and you will not be able to make premature withdrawals, which is the sole concern you need to be careful of. Amid declining interest rates, here are the top 5 private sector banks that are offering higher interest rates to both regular and elderly citizens who wish to earn substantial returns on their tax-saving deposits of 5 years.

 

Note: The interest rates on tax-saving fixed deposits of 5 years are marked in bold.
