Top 5 Banks Currently Promising Higher Returns On FDs

|

A fixed deposit (FD) is an investment instrument offered by banks or non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) that pays a higher interest rate than a standard savings account upon maturity. Unlike market-based instruments which may lose your capital due to market fluctuations, fixed deposits offer a guaranteed rate of return. An FD's tenure can range from 7 days to 10 years or 20 years. The Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC) insures these deposits up to Rs 5 lakh, making them better than Post Office Schemes. However, before settling on an FD, you must compare the interest rates available. The top 5 banks with the highest FD rates for deposits up to Rs 2 crore over various tenures are mentioned below.
