Looking To Invest In A Bank FD? These Are The Returns You Get

Bank fixed deposits (FDs) are fixed-income instruments which guarantee a fixed rate of return on investments. Leading banks like State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, among others offer the facility of opening a fixed deposit. These days FDs can also be created online. Some fixed deposits offer the benefit of income tax deduction. However, bank fixed deposits which come with a premature withdrawal facility do not offer income tax deduction benefits. FD accounts which do not offer a premature withdrawal facility offer this benefit but have a lock-in period.

The interest rates on FDs vary according to separate maturity baskets across different banks. Most banks offer fixed deposits starting from seven days up to a tenor of 10 years. However, fixed deposit interest rates are subject to change from time to time.

Given below are the latest interest rates offered by SBI, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and IndusInd Bank on fixed deposits up to Rs 1 crore:
