Fixed Deposit Interest Rates

A Fixed Deposit (FD) is a safe investment instrument, where investors earn interest on their deposit from banks. FDs are among the most popular fixed income investments, largely due to their less volatile nature. They do not depend on equities, so their value does not fluctuate regularly.

Fixed Deposit accounts are the most worthy option for risk-averse investors. Interest on Fixed Deposits is accrued on the deposited amount over a set timeframe. Read More

FD interest rates are also dependent on the type of financial entity you are choosing. The duration might range from seven days to ten years. Another attractive feature of FD interest rates is that they are not subject to market fluctuations, offering a guaranteed interest rate at maturity. IDFC FIRST Bank’s Fixed Deposit rates ensure you make handsome returns at the end of your maturation period.Read Less
