Bank Fixed Deposit: Whether you are an ordinary person or a senior citizen, investing in FDs under the loan category is a must. Here you get returns at a fixed rate of interest during the chosen maturity period. In FD, you get the facility to invest with maturity ranging from 7 days to 10 years.
This allows you to meet various investment objectives. On the other hand, in FD, your money remains safe, as your deposits up to Rs 5 lakh are insured by DICGC. Despite the fact that fixed deposit interest rates are falling (as many RBIs have kept the repo rate constant at 4%) here we will give you a list of banks that are still giving good returns on FDs. These interest rates are for less than Rs 2 crore and tenure of 3-5 years.
