FD rates are rising: What should be your strategy now?
With the back-to-back repo rate hikes by the Reserve Bank of India, the banks have also raised interest rates on fixed deposits. For individuals planning to invest in fixed deposits, Gaurav Aggarwal – Senior Director, Paisabazaar, said, “Consumers planning to open or renew fixed deposits should stick to shorter tenures, preferably between 1 to 2 years. As fixed deposit rates can be expected to continue to increase over the short term, they should not opt for an auto-renewal facility while booking or renewing their fixed deposits. This might allow the consumers to renew their fixed deposits at higher interest rates, after factoring in the highest interest rate slabs available at the time of renewal.”
