Earn Better Returns with High Interest Rate Fixed Deposits on Bajaj Markets

Business Wire IndiaThe Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has been periodically revising its repo rates by going on a ‘rate-hike’ spree, which began in May 2022. This has, in turn, resulted in an uptick in lending rates and Fixed Deposit (FD) interest offerings.
Official data shows that, over the past year, FD interest rates have surged by 0.35-2.75%. However, the same can’t be said for savings accounts, which continue to offer interest rates ranging around 3% per annum.
Consequently, Indians are moving their savings from such low-interest instruments to those offering comparatively higher returns, like FDs.
Some salient features of fixed deposits include:

  • Stable returns
  • Attractive interest rates
  • For FDs booked with banks, 10% TDS deducted if interest income crosses Rs. 40,000 (Rs. 50,000 for senior citizens)
  • For NBFC FDs, 10% TDS is deducted if earnings exceed Rs. 5,000
  • Tax deductions u/s 80C of up to Rs. 1.5 Lakhs via Tax-Saver FDs booked with banks
  • Flexible tenors
  • Auto-renewal facility
  • Premature withdrawal facility for certain FDs
  • Loan against Fixed Deposit
