Bank fixed deposits (FDs) are one of the most popular instruments used to save money for the future. Despite falling interest rates, many people prefer FDs over other savings/investment products as they offer a secured return and easy access to liquidity in case of an emergency.

Although, bank FDs are most popular savings instrument in India, you must know that interest earned from a fixed deposit is taxable. Banks are liable to deduct TDS at the rate of 10 per cent on the interest earned (based on FD interest rates) if the interest income for the year is more than Rs. 10,000.
