Top 10 Banks Promising Best Returns On FDs For Senior Citizens In 2021

|

In the current low-interest-rate scenario where interest rates on fixed deposits of banks are at an all-time low of around 5.5 per cent, investors especially senior citizens are hunting for other instruments under the debt category. When it comes to secure investments for senior citizens there is a range of instruments such as Senior Citizen Saving Scheme (SCSS), Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY), Post Office Monthly Income Scheme (POMIS), or Floating Rate Savings Bonds.

 

These instruments have a long maturity period which purely implies that senior citizens having long-term financial goals can step out to invest in. However, for varying investment goals investing in fixed deposits is always preferred to senior citizens as they have a maturity period ranging from 7 days to 10 years. So, keeping the guaranteed returns, flexible tenure, and deposit cover up to Rs 5 lakhs by DICGC in mind, here we have compiled the top 10 banks that are currently promising the best interest rates on fixed deposits (below Rs 2 Cr) for senior citizens.
