Fixed deposits (FDs) continue to be popular among investors, who are looking for guaranteed income. Interest earned from FDs gets added to your total income and is accordingly taxed at your slab rate. Many banks including SBI, ICICI, HDFC, Axis, IDFC First Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank offer FDs ranging from 7 days to ten years. Recently, top lenders revised their FD rates after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lowered repo rate, also known as lending rate, by 25 basis points for the third time in a row.
