Bank fixed deposit: HDFC Bank recently revised its interest rates on fixed deposits on select maturities


Banks make adjustments in the interest rates for retail customers from time to time. Lenders adjust these interest rates based on factors such as cost of borrowing from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The central bank earlier this month announced a 25-basis-point hike in repo rate to 6.5 per cent. That made short-term borrowing of funds from the central bank more expensive for commercial banks. Public sector banking major State Bank of India (SBI) and private sector peer HDFC Bank recently revised their FD interest rates across select maturities.

Here's a comparison of FD interest rates paid by top banks today on amounts up to Rs 1 crore:

In contrast to equity-related financial instruments such as mutual funds, fixed deposits offer fixed returns without market risks. That is why investors with a low appetite for risk prefer investment in FD over a mutual fund, say financial planners.
