Top 5 Banks With Higher Interest Rates On 3-5 Year Fixed Deposits

|

For both short-term and long-term investors, term deposits or fixed deposits (FDs) are among the most secure and highly preferred investment option due to some factors such as guaranteed returns, tax benefits, high liquidity and flexible tenure. Due to the assured interest rates of fixed deposits, risk-averse investors especially senior citizens in India consider investing in them for their post-retirement life. But in order to mitigate the economic repercussions of the Covid-19 epidemic, RBI has kept the repo rate constant at 4% which has led to most banks lowering their FD interest rates since the last year.

 

For fixed deposit investors like senior citizens, this is no doubt a serious matter of concern. Because after lowering interest rates on fixed deposits, most of the leading banks are presently offering an average return of 4 to 5%. But some private and small finance banks are offering more than the average interest rates of banks on fixed deposits. So if you have a personal finance goal that you want to achieve between 3 to 5 years, then here are the top 5 banks that are currently providing higher interest rates on 3-5 year fixed deposits on a deposit amount of less than Rs 2 Cr.
