Top 7 Banks Offering 7 To 8% Returns To Senior Citizens On Recurring Deposits of 2 Years

|

Whenever it pertains to a safe investment plan with consistent returns, senior citizens choose recurring deposit (RD) accounts since they not only earn a higher interest rate than regular deposits but also allow them to make contributions on a monthly basis. Individuals aged 60 and more generally earn an additional 0.25 percent to 0.65 percent interest rate over standard RD rates, and with banks raising interest rates on term deposits, now is the best time for senior citizens to invest in recurring deposits. Deposits made in recurring accounts are insured by DICGC up to Rs 5 lakhs, which defines the importance of having RDs in a senior citizen's debt portfolio.

 

Recurring Deposits are not eligible for tax deductions, thus income tax must be paid on the interest earned, which elderly folks should consider. The duration of a recurring deposit typically spans from six months to ten years, and banks deduct TDS (tax deducted at source) on the interest that is earned on the RD, therefore the TDS rate is ten percent. In the midst of the bank's rising interest rate cycle, here are the top 7 banks that are now giving 7 to 8% returns on recurring deposits with a two-year maturity. It's worth noting that we have selected banks based on higher interest rates rather than market capitalization.

Note: Interest rates applicable on recurring deposits maturing in 2 years are marked in bold.
