  1. Hi Suresh,

    Iam interested to invest in Kerala Transport Finance Corp. Whats your thoughts on it ? What kinda of rating does it have.  Thanks for your advice.

    1. Kumar, they are not rated by rating agencies. However it is Govt. company, hence the money is secured.

  2. Hi Suresh,

    As we see FD interest rates might increase/decrease month on month basis. So the rate at which we open a FD is fixed for my deposit or its a floating rate.



    1. A FD or RD or VRD (Variable RD), the interest rate which is offered by bank at the opening of such account is FIXED for the tenure. Recently I heard some banks are offering floating rate FD, but you can ignore for timebing as you would not know what would be the maturity amount with that.

  3. Dear Suresh,

    Is it safe to invest in a IDBI Bank FD. I am still confused if it's a Public Sector or Private Bank.


    1. Mohan, IDBI Bank is a public sector bank (51%+ is owned by central govt.) Here is the link for quick verification.

      Regd safety, since it is public sector bank, capital should be 100% safe

  4. Dear Suresh

    Could also please update the latest recurring deposits rates.

    Best regards


    1. Hiren, it is in que, would get auto published this week.

      1. Hi
        I want to know how safe is the money if
        I invest with luxmi vilas bank in
        NRE FD. I guess it is s private bank.

        1. Hi Nicl, Avoid such small banks. Open with any large private bank or nationalised bank.

          1. Well suresj g
            Only laxmi vilas bank had 9.75%
            NRE FD rate. It comes to 75000 diff. Per annum to any other bank. In worst case
            What can happen if bank close down.
            Can I still safe to get money.

          2. Hi Naresh, Worst is you may loose money. All FD’s are insured by Insurance deposit corp up to Rs 1 Lakh only. Any thing over and above, one may loose money in case in case bank shut downs.
