These Banks Offer Interest Rates Up To 8.5% On 1-Year Fixed Deposit

Since small finance banks need more customers, their FD interest rates are higher than larger lenders.


Fixed deposits of small finance banks offer higher interest rates than larger peers like State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank, all of which recently hiked their FD interest rates. Small finance banks cater to niche customers, especially focussing on extending banking facilities to the under-banked customers. Since these banks are new and need more customers, interest rates on their deposit schemes are much higher than larger lenders, say experts. Consider this: on a one-year fixed deposit, while SBI offers FD interest rate of 6.7 per cent, HDFC Bank 7.25 per cent and ICICI Bank 6.75 per cent, Jana Small Finance Bank offers 8 per cent, Utkarsh Small Finance Bank 8.25 per cent, Equitas Small Finance Bank 8  per cent, Suryoday Small Finance Bank 8.5 per cent and North East Small Finance Bank 8.5 per cent.

Given below are the fixed deposit or FD interest rates offered by Suryoday Small Finance Bank, Utkarsh Small Finance Bank, Jana Small Finance Bank, Equitas Small Finance Bank, and North East Small Finance Bank:
