Top 5 Banks Promising An Interest Rate of 7% On Savings Accounts In 2021

|

When it comes to your personal finances, the first step is opening a savings account for your short-term needs and to meet your regular expenses. The Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation (DICGC) insures your deposits up to Rs. 5 lakh, so it's a safe bet to put your money in a savings account. You'll also get enticing perks like cashback or reward points on your ATM or debit card transactions, good interest rates for keeping a monthly average balance with a sweep in, passbook, net banking, and cheque book options, and more.

 

Savings account interest rates are low when compared to fixed deposit interest rates, but some banks can offer higher savings account interest rates than fixed deposit interest rates. Despite leading banks such as HDFC, State Bank of India (SBI), Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, and others promise savings account interest rates from 2.75 percent to 3.50 percent, certain small finance banks may provide savings account interest rates as high as 7%, which is something that you can't ignore. As a result, here are our selected top 5 small finance banks that are now offering an interest rate of up to 7% on savings accounts including deposit safety of DICGC.
