Top 5 Banks Promising Up To 7.25% Interest On 5 Year Fixed Deposits

|

Fixed deposit investments under the debt category are a solid choice for both regular and elderly individuals who wish to earn a regular income, as well as the promise of deposit security, income tax benefits, reinvestment possibility, and so on if they stay invested for a long period of time, like 5 years. However, when it comes to investing for 5 years in a fixed deposit scheme, you can not make a premature withdrawal which is a key consideration you need to keep in mind apart from the goodies like fixed interest rate, tax benefits under section 80C, cumulative deposit option and so on. Hence, for risk-averse investors who have long-term financial goals, here we have compiled the top 5 banks that are currently promising good interest rates up to 7.25% on fixed deposits of 5 years or tax saving fixed deposits of less than Rs 2 Cr.
