Tax-saving fixed deposits are one of the most popular options among conservative investors who want to reduce their tax burden. The reasons are that, similar to what their name implies, tax-saving fixed deposits are subject to a 5-year lock-in requirement and only enable tax deductions of up to 1.5 lakh every fiscal year under Section 80C. Tax-saving FDs can be opened with monthly and quarterly payouts, and interest rates vary depending on who is applying, from the general public to senior citizens. Individuals can look at the five public sector banks listed below, which, according to our own research, give the highest interest rates on tax-saving FDs in the market, amid the rising interest rates on bank fixed deposits.

Union Bank of India

First on our list is Union Bank of India, which has changed the interest rates on its fixed deposits (FDs) effective November 25, 2022. The bank currently offers a 6.70% interest rate on tax-saving fixed deposits with a 5-year term, and elderly persons are eligible for an extra 50 basis points of interest, bringing the total interest rate to 7.20%.
