FD Interest rates

FD Interest rates

FD is a kind of term deposit, where you need to invest the lump sum money at once. The interest rate on the FDs will depend and vary on the tenure and the investment amount. The interest rates for public and senior citizens are generally different. The banks will normally offer around 0.50% higher interest rates to the senior citizens, compared to the public. For FDs, premature closure is allowed. That means, if an investor has chosen an FD of Rs. 1 lakh for 5 years, he/she can still withdraw the money before 5 years. However, in that case, the investor will receive lesser interest on the amount.

At present, the banks are trying to give competitive interest rates. The repo rate is at a historical low now in India. Hence, the interest rates on deposits are not attracting much profit. On the other hand, interest on loans is quite affordable now. So, investors need to check and compare the FD interest rates in different banks.
