SBI recently advertised how the fixed deposits offered by SBI under Section 80C helps you save tax and the effective yield.

But this is pre tax return. The interest you get is taxable in case of above deposits. Since they have assumed tax bracket of 30%, your post tax yield would come to 14.15% (from 18.55%) for senior citizens and for others it would be 13.7% (from 17.77%).
So be careful when you are tempted with such advertisements 🙂

if i want to save 20,000 as the taxable amount then how much investment should be done by me in this scheme.
When do the banks increase the tax for fixed deposit? How can I know about that?
Banks don’t increase taxes on FD! Its the Govt which changes taxation rules in budget every year!
If I make a FD of 25k for 5 years on my wife’s name (she is house wife and dependent on me), can I use it to show as investment in my annual Tax Declaration ?
I hope yes, please correct me if I am wrong.
By the way the interest quoted above is Yield not actual rate of interest. Actual SBI rate of interest is (and was) 8.50% only.
So If I invest 25k for 5 years, my yield will be 38k.
Tax Saving FD should be done on your name for claiming exemption. If you want to include your wife’s name she can come as second holder.
You are correct about the maturity amount of 38K for investment of Rs 25K.

Unfortunately No! The interest earned on Tax saving FD is taxable by adding interest to your income.
