Before locking their money in fixed deposits (FDs), investors tend to compare interest rates offered by different banks in order to maximise their earnings.

As of now, banks offer highest returns on their term deposits to align with prevailing high repo rates. RBI on Friday kept the repo rate at 6.5 percent for the seventh consecutive time in a row.

But when the RBI starts cutting down interest rates in the next monetary policy committee (MPC) meet, the interest rates would take a downward spiral.

But until that happens, deposits are advised to make the most of the prevailing high interest rates.

Here are the interest rates offered by top banks:

HDFC Bank: HDFC Bank offers the highest fixed deposit interest rate of 7.25 percent on its deposits with tenure of 18 to 21 months.

The bank also offers 7.15 percent on fixed deposits with tenure between 2 years 11 months to 35 months.

When tenure is one year to 15 months, the interest is 6.60 percent. When the tenure is between 2 years to 2 years 11 months, the interest is 7 percent. For short tenure fixed deposits, the interest rates range between 3 percent to 6 percent.
