Listen to this article

It is wise to give liquidity and returns equal weight when considering an investment because no one can foretell when a financial emergency will occur. This is why having a savings account is essential whether you are a salaried or self-employed individual. Savings accounts are interest-bearing investments that offer unfettered access to deposits and withdrawals. Savings accounts are crucial to our daily financial lives, and nowadays opening one is a requirement to begin any financial journey, whether it's for investments or fulfilling short-term necessities. It is preferable to hold a savings account with the bank guaranteeing higher interest rates in its sector in an environment of rising interest rates. Consequently, some private sector banks are giving savings account interest rates of up to 7% which are briefly discussed here.

DCB Bank

Currently, DCB Bank is the only bank in the private sector category that offers savings accounts with an interest rate of up to 7%. The bank's savings account interest rates are put in effect as of August 22, 2022, and they apply to resident, NRE, and NRO savings bank accounts. Savings account interest rates at DCB Bank are determined daily based on the account's end-of-day balance and are paid quarterly. DCB Bank is giving a 7% interest rate on savings account balances of 25 lakh and less than 2 crore.
