IDBI Bank trims Fixed Deposit Rates
Following the RBI’s actions of slashing the repo rate to 7.25%, many banks have gone ahead in reducing the interest rates charged and offered. Among ICICI, HDFC, Axis and others, IDBI has also reduced its interest rates on high value term deposits starting June 30, 2015.
It’s worthwhile to mention that the growth trend pertaining to deposits with banks in financial year 2015 increased only by 11.42%, the lowest ever since 1961. Three consecutive policy rate cuts in 2015 and a slow credit market have forced the hand of most banks to trim deposit rates.
Government sponsored schemes like Sukanya Samriddhi still offer prospective depositors a comparatively higher rate of return now. In the face of such competition, the 55 basis points slash by IDBI might not seem a very lucrative option for depositors.
