Looking To Invest In Fixed Deposits? Compare Interest Rates Here

FD interest rates are subject to change from time to time


A fixed deposit (FDs) is a financial instrument which offers guaranteed return. Financial institutions such as banks, post office, small finance banks and non-banking financial companies offer fixed deposit accounts. Customers can deposit money in fixed deposits for a specific period, ranging from seven days to 10 years. Banks usually pay a higher rate of interest to senior citizens than general public on fixed deposits. FD interest rates are subject to change from time to time. Yes Bank revised its interest rates with effect from May 2, 2019, according to the private sector lender's website.
