Planning to invest in a fixed deposit for 1 year: Top 5 banks offering highest interest rates

When the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is expected to cut down repo rate towards the end of the year, investors are recommended to lock their investments in fixed deposits (FDs) in order to make the most of the prevailing high interest rates.

It is worth mentioning that the repo rate cut is likely to kick off the onset of low interest rate cycle in the market. So, if RBI happens to slash the benchmark repo rate in this calendar year, banks would also follow suit by reducing the interest rates they offer on their term deposits.

Investors must be mindful of the fact that all the banks offer varying interest rates for different time periods. So, based on the time period for which you want to lock your fixed deposit, you should opt for the bank.
