50 Best Bank Fixed Deposit Schemes – March 2013

With Budget 2013, there is speculation that Reserve Bank of India (RBI) would reduce interest rates going forward. This might decrease your EMI burden but would negatively impact people who invest in Fixed Deposits. We have already seen the interest rates on Tax Free Bonds have already come down.

I was also expecting fall in Bank FD Rates but on the contrary FD rates have been increased by 0.25% by banks like State bank of India (SBI) and PNB.

Here is 50 Best Fixed deposit scheme spanning across various banks and different tenures that you can choose from.

    Dear Amit,

    This is really very helpful … BUT this will become more useful if in addition of bank name you can add one more column to identify the type of Bank, Like Nationalised Bank, Co-Operative Bank, Privet Sector Bank OR Foreign Bank. 🙂

    and if you can also add print this tab with social netowrking tab 🙂

    Again Thanks for posting this kinds of useful information contineously …

    • Hi Chirag

      Would add the classification of banks.

      About the print options, let me find out the right plugin and would do it in next few days.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts
      Amit
