List of fixed deposit rates across all banks in India
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 also relatively low when compared to investing in the stock market, for example, but the returns are 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 set their own FD interest rate which in India generally ranges from 3.5% - 8% (or more) depending on the tenure and amount among other factors. If you have idle money that you wish to invest, opening an FD is a simple and safe option, which requires minimal documentation. Conservative investors prefer FD accounts over other avenues of riskier investments as it is safe and gives assured returns.
