Amid rising interest rates which have been witnessed this month on the back of a rise in repo rate decision made by the RBI, several banks have already started hiking interest rates on fixed deposits. Interest rates on fixed deposits have been raised by three private sector banks this week: ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, and Federal Bank. As a result, let's look at these banks' new interest rates to see if they're worth investing in.

HDFC Bank, the largest private sector lender, raised interest rates on 9-month and above deposits by 10 to 20 basis points on May 18, 2022.
