State Bank of India (SBI) on Monday said it will reduce interest rate on fixed deposits across all maturities with effect from August 1. "For time deposits with longer tenors, there is a reduction up to 20 bps (basis points) or 0.2 per cent in the Retail segment and 35 bps or 0.35 per cent in the Bulk segment," SBI, the country's largest lender, said in a statement. The bank will now offer an interest rate of 5 per cent to general public and 5.5 per cent to senior citizens on fixed deposits of 7-45 days. Previously, the public sector bank paid interest at the rate of 5.75 per cent and 6.25 per cent to the general public and senior citizens respectively.
