Axis Bank Fixed Deposit Rate

A Fixed Deposit (FD) is one of the most popular financial instruments among the general population in India as it is a safe and reliable investment which provides a higher rate of interest than a regular savings account. It is considered to be a low-risk form of saving. The rewards are proportionately low as well when compared to investing in the stock market, for example, but is free from volatility and fluctuation.

Money can be deposited in an FD account for a period that typically ranges from 7 days to 10 years. Banks are free to set their own FD interest rate which in India can generally range from 3.5% - 8% depending on the tenure and amount among other factors. If you have some extra money that you wish to invest, opening an FD is a simple and safe option, with minimal documentation required.

Apart from banks, NBFCs and corporates too offer fixed deposits.

Axis Bank Fixed Deposit Rate

The rate of interest paid on a fixed deposit varies according to the amount deposited, period and the issuing bank. Axis Bank Interest Rates typically ranges from 4%-9% per annum.

The defining criteria for a fixed deposit is that the money cannot be withdrawn before maturity, unless on payment of a penalty. Once the deposit matures, the bank credits the original amount plus the interest earned to the bank account specified when the FD is opened. The money deposited earns the same fixed rate of interest throughout the entire FD period (except for certain kinds of floating rate deposits).
