ICICI Bank and Axis Bank recently revised their fixed deposit (FD) interest rates.

When the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is expected to slash repo rate later this year, this is seen as a good time to lock your money in fixed deposits.

Ideally, one can lock the money for a long duration in order to make the most of prevailing high interest rates. Usually, the interest rate rises with the tenure of deposit. This means longer the tenure, higher the rate of interest and shorter the tenure, lower the rate of interest.

Here we give a lowdown on the top banks and the interest rates they offer on 3-year fixed deposits:

As we can see in the table below, the highest rate of interest of 7.25 percent is given by Punjab National Bank to regular depositors on 3-year deposits, and 7.75 percent to senior citizens.

At the same time, HDFC Bank offers 7 percent on its 3-year deposits to regular citizens and 7.5 percent to senior citizens.

Likewise, ICICI Bank also offers 7 percent per annum on 3-year deposits, while an extra 50 basis points is offered to senior citizens.)

Bank                                                 Regular (%) Senior citizens (%)

ICICI Bank                                             77.5
