Fixed deposit (FDs) are trusted by a large number of common men for its predictable and secured returns. This is one of the most conventional ways to deposit savings. Very recently the country’s top lender State Bank of India (SBI) and non-Banking finance company (NBFC), HDFC Ltd have launched new fixed deposits schemes. If you are planning to invest in fixed deposits, it’s always better to know the recent changes and compare the interest rates.
SBI is offering an exclusive FD on the occasion of the 75th year of Independence. This special offer was launched on August 15 and is going to close on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.
Under the scheme the customers of the bank could earn the benefits of up to 15 basis points on term deposits for different brackets, namely for 74 days, 525 days (75 weeks) or 2,250 days (75 months tenure).
If anyone goes with 75 days FD, then the person will get 3.95% yearly interest instead of 3.9. On the other hand, a senior citizen will get 4.45%, in place of normal 4.4%.
For 75 weeks a normal person will get 5.1% interest rate in place of 5%, senior citizens will get 5.6% in place of 5.5%.
For a 75-month FD, a normal person will get 5.55%, in place of 5.4%. On the other hand, a senior citizen will get 6.2%.
