Listen to this article

Several lenders, including the country’s largest bank, State Bank of India (SBI), have raised interest on deposit rates in order to woo customers with higher fixed deposit (FD) interest rates. As the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is hiking the repo rates in order to tame the inflation, banks are expected to pass on the benefit to customers. The banks in turn are hiking the rates on term deposits.

SBI recently launched a special FD scheme offering higher interest rate with a tenor of 1,000 days. Bank of Baroda has also unveiled similar offer. Private lender Axis Bank also came up with similar scheme.

On Utsav Fixed Deposit Scheme, SBI is offering an interest rate of 6.10% per annum on fixed deposits with a tenure of 1000 days. And senior citizens will be eligible to get an additional interest rate of 0.50% over and above the regular rate. These rates are effective as of 15th August 2022 and the scheme is valid for a period of 75 days.
