    Fixed Deposit BYTES FROM OUR KITCHEN

    Banks Offering Fixed Deposit Rates Above 9% in 2016

    Fixed Deposits are one of the most widely procured investment options by customers. It is also relatively safe and reliable especially for short term gains. Reasons for its popularity include -

    • Returns are guaranteed although they are lesser compared to those that come with higher risks.
    • Compounded interest decides the returns offered.
    • Risk factor is minimal and sometimes, individuals can also procure loans or credit cards against this although rates of interest charged on this is relatively higher.

    However, despite the advantages, individuals must note that although Fixed Deposits have tax benefits, the interest charged on them is taxable. Individuals cannot withdraw prior to maturity either as this will result in a penalty. Another disadvantage is that, even if the market is in good shape, interest rates will not change.

    • Identity Proof such as PAN Card, Passport, etc.
