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.

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.

    Sir, I have a FD for Rs.2.5 Lacs for 2 years with ICICI bank(9%). I learnt that TDS will be deducted if the interest is more than 10000Rs. I had quit my job and I no more have a job. Would submitting the 15G form would spare me from TDS? Kindly shed some light on this.

    HI Suresh, Thanks for such a helpful post. My question is regarding form 16, Could you advise if there is any provisoon to get form 16 via email from the bank?.


  • Mohamed Shafi

    Iam an NRI please advise which bank is secured and gives high interest… As of now iam using HDFC…………

    • Hi MD Shafi, All banks are safe as these are continously monitored by RBI. However if you still have doubt, you can invest in nationalised banks which are 100% secure.


    I understand Repco bank is giving high interest rates on fixed deposits. Additional bonus is, they do not deduct any TDS and don't need PAN card as well. Concern is, their cheques are not accepted by any bank and we can only withdraw money from them. They claim that this is "Government of India enterprise". Need some information on this bank as this is not registered as a bank with RBI and how safe is our deposit there.

    • Anandan, This is news to me. Have you verified that other banks do not accept Repco Bank cheques ? Several readers indicated on this blog that they heard about this bank and started investing in their FD schemes. This is how even I have included them as part of regular bank FD rates.
