      What are Fixed Deposit Interest Rates?

      Fixed Deposits, also known as FDs, are a popular investment option in India, known for their stability. With FDs, you can deposit a certain specific amount for a predetermined period at an agreed-upon interest rate.

      The FD interest rate signifies the percentage of interest you will earn on the principal amount over your FD tenure. You will earn different rates for different tenures. The FD interest rates are influenced by factors like the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) monetary policy, inflation rates, and the overall economic scenario.


      Why Invest in FD?

      When it comes to growing your savings, Fixed Deposits (FDs) are a reliable and secure investment option that offers numerous advantages. As an investor, it is essential to explore options that provide stable returns, and bank FDs stand out for their competitive interest rates.

      One of the primary reasons to invest in FDs is the predictability of returns. Unlike market-linked investments, Fixed Deposit rates remain unaffected by market fluctuations. This stability is especially beneficial for you if you are looking for a risk-free steady growth.

      Furthermore, FDs offer flexibility in terms of tenure, with options ranging from a few months to several years. This makes it adaptable to your financial plans, whether you are saving for a short-term goal or planning for the long term.


      Special Features Of Fixed Deposit Interest Rates

      Fixed Deposit interest rates come with the following features:

      • Lucrative Interest Rates: FDs tend to offer higher interest rates than Savings Account. There is a potential to earn greater returns with FDs.

      • Senior Citizen Perks: At HDFC Bank, individuals above 60 years of age can enjoy higher FD interest rates and special taxation benefits.

      • Interest Payout Frequency: You can opt for monthly, quarterly, annual, or even cumulative interest payouts, aligning with your income needs or reinvestment strategies.

      • Flexible Tenure Options: FD rates differ across tenures. You can opt for a tenure of your choice, depending on your goals.


      Additional features associated with FDs:


      • Instant FD Booking: As an existing customer of the bank, you can instantly open an FD via online banking channels like NetBanking or Mobile Banking.

      • Premature Withdrawal Available: You can close your FD before its maturity date. Note that doing so will attract premature withdrawal penalties.

      • Autorenewal Facility: The bank will automatically renew your FD per the previous arrangement, at prevailing interest rates. You may provide renewal instructions of your choice.

      • Nomination Facility: You can appoint a nominee for your FD at any time during the tenure. You also have the option to modify nominee details.

      • Loan Against FD: You can pledge your FD to secure a quick loan to meet financial emergencies. This way you need to break your FD.


      Taxation on Fixed Deposit Interest Rates

      The interest you earn with your Fixed Deposits is considered as ‘income from other sources’ while computing your Income Tax Returns. Per section 194A of the Income Tax Act, 1961, tax is deducted at the income’s point of origin. In case of FDs, since the point of origin is the bank, the bank will deduct TDS (tax deducted source) when your interest exceeds a certain specific threshold.

      If your interest income on FDs exceeds ₹40,000 per financial year, TDS will be applicable. For senior citizens, the threshold for TDS deduction is ₹50,000. If you are exempted from tax payments, you can submit Form 15G to prevent the bank from deducting TDS. Senior citizen FD holders must submit form 15H.

      Fixed Deposit Investment Tips

      To make the most of your fixed deposit investments, consider these tips.


      1. Assess your financial goals and choose an FD tenure that aligns with them. Short-term FDs might suit immediate requirements, while long-term FDs can provide higher interest rates and tax benefits.

      2. Diversify your investments by staggering FDs with different maturity dates. This strategy ensures regular liquidity while benefiting from higher FD rates on long-term deposits.

      3. Keep an eye on interest rate trends, as they can impact your earnings. Opting for a cumulative FD could help compound your interest and provide greater returns upon maturity.

      4. Consider splitting your investments between FDs and other investment instruments to balance risk and returns.

      5. Be mindful of premature withdrawals, as they can attract penalties.

      Fixed Deposit Interest Rate FAQs

      Can I get monthly interest on FD?

      You can opt for a monthly interest payout option with your FD. This option provides a regular income stream by disbursing a portion of the interest earned each month.

      Is FD tax free? 

      Fixed Deposit interest is taxable. The interest earned on FDs is added to your total income and taxed based on your applicable income tax slab.
