Fixed Deposits (FD) are one of the most popular and traditional investment tools, preferred by people who have a low-risk appetite and want a fixed, assured income after a certain period.

 

Interest rates lowered

Interest rates lowered

Due to the pandemic, RBI, on behalf of the union government has lowered the interest rate in India, hence the banks are now obliged to offer low-interest rates on FDs. So, here is a list below that will compare the FD rates in the top banks, operating in India.

One must remember, to open an FD investment, one must open an account in a particular bank. Usually, people invest in FDs, when they have a lump sum. But investment below Rs. 2 crores is commonly chosen by Indian citizens, hence, the rates mentioned below are listed on investment less than Rs. 2 crores.

Comparison and best option

Hence, if you are going to invest in a 5 years' FD scheme with an interest for the general public (you are not a senior citizen), then Axis Bank can be your choice because they are offering a 5.75% interest rate. Other top banks are offering less than that. On the other hand, for 5 years or more FD for the senior citizens, Axis Bank is offering a lucrative interest rate at 6.50%, which is better than other banks. At a time when interest rates on FDs are low, one should always compare the rates offered by other banks. Additionally, Post Office offers a better interest rate on FD than other banks. So, one can follow post office FD rates too.
