Latest FD Interest Rates Offered By SBI, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Post Offices



Fixed deposits or FDs offer assured rates of return. FD interest rates are fixed over a specific period of time. Thus, even in times of market volatility, FD investors can be sure of earning fixed returns on their investment. FDs are also popular among customers because of the ease with which they can be created. Most banks these days allow the option of setting up a fixed deposit account online. FDs which come with a lock-in period of five or 10 years also offer benefits under the Income Tax Act.

However, fixed deposits with a facility of premature withdrawal do not offer income tax benefits.

Recently, banks such as SBI or State Bank of India, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank raised their FD interest rates across select maturities. India Post, however, last revised its FD interest rates on January 1.

Given below is a comparison of latest FD interest rates paid by SBI, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and India Post:
