Small Saving Schemes Interest Rates Hiked But What Do Banks Pay On Fixed Deposits?

SBI or State Bank of India, the largest lender of the country, last revised its FD interest rates on July 30.

Small Saving Schemes Interest Rates Hiked But What Do Banks Pay On Fixed Deposits?

On deposits below Rs 1 crore SBI FD interest rates for the general public range from 5.75-6.85%.

Even as the government recently hiked small saving schemes' interest rates for the October-December quarter, bank fixed deposit or FD interest rates have so far not been hiked. Rise in interest rates of small saving schemes would nudge banks to increase deposit rates in third quarter of 2019, albeit less than the magnitude of revision in small saving schemes' interest rates, said rating agency ICRA. Most leading banks revised their FD interest rates around the central bank's August policy review meet.

SBI or State Bank of India, the largest lender of the country, last revised its FD interest rates on July 30. Punjab National Bank (PNB) last revised its fixed deposit interest rates on August 1. Private lenders HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank last revised their FD interest rates on August 6 and August 14 respectively.

On deposits below Rs 1 crore, SBI FD interest rates for the general public range from 5.75 per cent to 6.85 per cent, PNB FD interest rates range from 5.70 to 6.25 per cent, HDFC Bank FD interest rates range from 3.5 per cent to 6 per cent, and ICICI Bank FD interest rates range from 4 per cent to 7.25 per cent.

Given below are fixed deposit or FD interest rates of SBI, PNB, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank:
