FD (Fixed Deposit) Interest Rates Offered By SBI, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank Compared

A longer FD tenure typically fetches a higher rate of interest.

Comments
A fixed deposit (FD) is a popular savings instrument among investors because of the secured returns that it offers. People willing to park their money in FDs are required to keep a sum of amount with a bank for a particular period of time. On the basis of this, the investor gets a regular, assured rate of interest on his/her savings. "Much like a savings account, bank fixed deposits are a safe savings instrument unlike other investment avenues like stocks, mutual funds, gold, real estate etc, which are a function of market volatility," said Ambuj Chandna, Sr. EVP & Head - Retail Liabilities, Investment & Payment Products, Kotak Mahindra Bank.

A longer FD tenure typically fetches a higher rate of interest.


Here are the interest rates on fixed deposits offered by top three top banks of the country:
