For FDs of less than ₹2 crore, SBI hikes interest rates by up to 25 bps


The State Bank of India (SBI) has hiked interest rates by up to 25 basis points (bps) on fixed deposits (FDs) of less than ₹2 crore, HT’s sister publication Mint has reported. The hike in interest rates comes days after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the policy repo rate by 25 bps to 6.5%.

SBI’s new interest rates came into effect on Wednesday. These are for both general customers and senior citizens.

General FD rates

For deposits with tenure of less than a year, the country’s largest public sector lender has not made any change. This, therefore, means it continues to offer 3% on 7-45 days, 4.5% on 46-179 days, 5.25% on 180-210 days, and 5.75% on 211 days to less than 1 year.

On the other hand, on FD’s for 2 years to less than 3 years, the interest rate has been increased from 6.75% to 7%. For tenures from 3 to 10 years, it now stands at 6.5% for each, up from the earlier 6.25%.

FDs with a tenure of 1 year to less than 2 years received the lowest hike, of 5 bps, from 6.75% to 6.8%.
