Fixed Deposit: Want to invest in FD, here is the information about which banks are offering the highest interest rates?


 

Fixed Deposit: Investing in fixed deposits is very popular among senior citizens, as it keeps liquidity always. This keeps on earning interest income from time to time. Most banks have reduced interest rates on FDs after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) kept the key repo rate unchanged at a low of 4 per cent for over a year. Despite the fall in interest rates, small private companies offer interest rates of up to 7 per cent on three-year FDs for senior citizens, according to BankBazaar data. Here are the FDs of top five private banks, which are offering the highest interest rates on three-year FDs for senior citizens.
