Top 4 Lenders of India Offering Good Returns On Fixed Deposits

|

A fixed deposit (FD) is a form of fixed-income investment that offers guaranteed returns for a set period of time. After post office savings schemes it is among the better choices for those looking for steady and risk-free returns. To gain decent returns you need to lock-in your deposit amount for a fixed period of time. Generally, investors can select a tenure of 7 days to 10 years. The interest rates on FDs are subject to adjustment from time to time, and they differ from one lender to the next. In the case of FDs, choosing the tenure is important since if holders withdraw the funds before the maturity date, they will be charged a penalty, which will reduce the net interest received against the principal amount. The below is a comparison of the interest rates on fixed deposits (FDs) up to Rs 2 crore provided by the four major banks: SBI, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, and HDFC Bank:
