Top 4 Banks Offering Interest Rate Upto 7.25%, In 3 Years Fixed Deposits (FDs)

For the past 4-5 years, investors are lamenting about the FDs mostly because of the low-interest rate on them. All the short-term FDs and Long term FDs are now offering low-interest rates, mostly around 5% for the public. The interest rates for senior citizens are higher by around 0.75%. But earlier, during 2015, FD rates used to stay around 8.25%, which has been degraded over the years.

However, some banks are offering better interest rates than the others in 3 years FD, and the top 4 banks are listed below.

So, investing in a small finance bank FD will not be different than investing in any other bank.
