Top 5 Public Sector Banks Promising Best Interest Rates On FD In 2021

|

A fixed deposit is among the finest debt instruments offered by banks, offering a variety of advantages such as risk-free interest rates, guaranteed returns, tax benefits, deposit safety, flexible tenure, and additional interest rates for senior citizens, among others. Fixed deposit instruments, as opposed to equities, mutual funds, or other market-linked instruments, are the best short- and long-term investments since they are not market-driven. By taking into account all of these variables, we've prepared a list of the top 5 public sector or government banks that are currently giving the best interest rates in the market to both regular and senior citizens.
