Sep-2014: Latest Fixed Deposit Interest Rates in India

Fixed Deposit Interest Rates in IndiaLatest FD interest rates in India indicate that, in the last one month, banks have been reducing interest rates which is not a good sign for investors. One of the safest fixed income options for all investors is bank fixed deposit schemes. Many of us have been investing in these schemes either for short term or for the long term. Parking money with high Fixed Deposit Interest Rates would be out motive. Any interest rate reduction is a bad news to  the investor.

Positive movers

Foreign banks: Last month, Deutsche Bank have increased Bank FD rates. Now it is the turn of Citibank. During this month, it has increased the fixed deposit interest rates for short term of 1 year and 2 year period to 7.75% and 7.5% respectively.

Private Banks: Among private banks, Axis bank has increased the FD interest rate for a 2 year tenure to 9.10%. This is the highest interest rate, this bank offers in their FD schemes.

Public Sector Banks: Andhra Bank increased the FD interest for 3 year fixed deposit scheme at 9%.

Negative Movers

Foreign Banks: No negative movements.

Private Banks: HDFC Bank and Lakshmi Vilas Bank have reduced interest rates for short term of 1 year.

Public Sector Banks: Bank of Baroda has slashed the rates for all tenures. Bank of India and IDBI Bank have reduced the fixed deposit interest rates for short term of 1 year period. SBH and SBI have reduced interest rates for medium term of 3 to 5 year period.

What does this mean for investors?

Investors have to be more alert and start parking their money in long term FD schemes. In future, interest rates may further drop and I am not surprised that in the next 30 days to 90 days the fixed deposit interest rates may further fall.

    • Hi Srinivas, Concept is good. However you would get returns up to 9% maximum. Instead, you can look to invest in mutual funds for some amount. Choose Balanced funds like HDFC prudence or ICICI balanced funds if you are low risk investor.

    Hi Suresh 

    Thanks for this very good article. Yes, this is the only site, which gives us the change in FD rates. 
    Can we request you to add one more column "effective interest rate", which tells us the effective rate post tax deductions. This would give investors better clarity to take decision. For exp if is bank is giving 9% and post tax if we minus the % it comes to 6.5%, it will better to add that there. 



    • Rajesh. It may not be possible to add a single column as there are 3 tax slabs and for each and every column, we need to add 3 more. Means we need to add approx 15 more columns.Let me check what best I can put it in this table

  • Maven
