Do remember that fixed deposits are protected by the deposit insurance program to the tune of Rs 5 lakh per depositor. It includes both the principal and interest amount. Under this insurance program, each depositor of each scheduled bank is covered for cumulative deposits (including fixed, current, savings, and recurring deposits) of up to Rs 5 lakh, in case of bank failures. This cover makes small private sector banks offering higher FD yields equally ‘safe’ as public sector banks and major private sector banks for cumulative deposits of up to Rs 5 lakh.
‘Start booking FDs for longer tenures’
“Depositors can start booking FDs for longer tenures, especially if those are offered at attractive yields. However, banks having more aggressive targets for their credit growth or those having relatively smaller deposit bases may resort to further FD rate hikes to achieve their targeted credit growth,” said Naveen Kukreja, Co-Founder & CEO, Paisabazaar.
