Interest Rates Offered By Banks On Fixed Deposits Below Rs 1 Crore

Earlier this week, private sector lender HDFC Bank revised its fixed deposit interest rates.

A fixed deposit (FDs) is a secure investment instrument offered by banks, non-banking financial companies and the post office. Investment in a fixed deposit account fetches guaranteed returns. In a fixed deposit account, money can be invested for a higher rate of interest than savings accounts. One can deposit a lump sum of money in fixed deposits for a specific period, ranging from seven days to 10 years. Lenders also pay slightly higher interest rates on fixed deposits to senior citizens, compared to the general public. Earlier this week, private sector lender HDFC Bank revised its fixed deposit interest rates.

Here's a comparison of interest rates offered by SBI, Kotak Mahindra Bank, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank on fixed deposits up to Rs 1 crore:
