Savings account interest rates: State Bank of India (SBI) offers up to 4%; Suryoday offers up to 7.5%.


Leading banks of the country such as State Bank of India (SBI) are also among the most popular ones. However, small finance banks such as Suryoday, Fincare Small Finance Bank and AU Small Finance Bank offer banking services to the under-banked people of the society including farmers, small business men - essentially, the ones who may not have an easy access to formal lending, but still require the credit and banking services. Interestingly, interest rates offered on fixed deposits (FDs) of these banks are higher than those of large banks such as SBI, but the former are still not among the first choice of depositors.
