Citibank Fixed Deposit Rate - FD Rate 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 instrument which provides a higher rate of interest as compared to a regular savings account. It is considered to be a low-risk form of investment which translates to savings in the long run. The rewards are proportionately low as well when compared to investing in the stock market, 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 saved some extra money that you wish to invest, opening an FD is a simple and safe option, with minimal documentation required.
Apart from banks and NBFCs, corporates also offer fixed deposits.
Citibank Bank deposit rates
The rate of interest paid on a fixed deposit varies according to the amount deposited, period and the issuing bank. Citibank 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The defining criteria for a fixed deposit is that the money cannot be withdrawn before maturity, unless on payment of a penalty.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).
Citibank offers convenient and flexible Fixed Deposit schemes, which is a safe mode of investing your funds. You can book deposits with Citibank on Citibank Online or Citi Mobile Banking App.
