ICICI Bank has revised its fixed deposit interest rates on select maturities with effect from Wednesday, August 14. ICICI Bank has cut the interest rate applicable to maturity periods such as 30-45 days, 46-60 days and 1 year-389 days, according to the Mumbai-based lender's website, icicibank.com. The bank is offering an interest rate of 5.25 per cent to general public and 5.75 per cent to senior citizens on fixed deposit accounts of 30-45 days. Previously, the private bank paid interest rates of 5.5 per cent and 6 per cent to the general public and senior citizens respectively.
On fixed deposits of 1 year-389 days days maturity period, the lender has lowered its interest rates by 20 basis points or 0.20 percentage point. After the revision, ICICI Bank is offering interest at the rate of 6.7 per cent and 7.2 per cent on the fixed deposits to general public and senior citizens respectively.
The announcement comes a week after the bi-monthly review of the Reserve Bank of India's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). The RBI had slashed the repo rate by 35 basis points to 5.40 per cent, marking a fourth straight reduction in interest rate.
