    SBI Fixed Deposit Interest Rates

    SBI offers short-term deposits from interest rates of 5.5%p.a. 6.5%p.a., quarterly compounded.

    The shortest term available is 30 days, which offers a 5.5% annual rate of interest. The rate of interest increases with an increase in the term of the FD . For deposit periods of 60, 90 and 120 days, the rate of interest is at 6.5% p.a. If you invest in a FD for 6 or 9 months, then the rate of interest you can earn are 6.5% p.a. respectively. The FD with a deposit tenure of one year earns an interest of 6.5% p.a. Considering a quarterly compounding frequency, the effective or annualized interest is quite competitive and a profitable short-term investment.

    Fixed Deposits that feature tenures of more than a year, up to 5 years, have interest rates ranging from 6.75%p.a. – 6.25% p.a. The term could be for 1.6, 2 years. While the rates for these tenures hover around 6. 5% p.a., the rate on a 1.6 is 6.5% but for 2-years, the interest rate is 6.25% p.a. Again these rates are compounded quarterly and give customers an effective yield that delivers attractive returns. More than 2 years the fd interest rate is 6.25%.

    Senior Citizens FD Rates

    Most banks offer higher rates of interest for senior citizens, with SBI the rates of interest range from 6% for a 30 day term to 6.75% for a 5 year FD. The rate of interest of the FD vary depending on the term as it does with FDs in general. Since the interest is compounded quarterly it can add great to the maturity value of the FD. This addition can provide senior citizens with a regular if not an additional source of income.

    SBI Reinvestment Plan Rates

The tenure for this kind of deposit will be minimum of 6 months - maximum of 10 years. The minimum amount to be paid will be Rs. 1,000. This Reinvestment plan will include premature withdrawal, loan in terms of overdraft, TDS as per Income Tax norms etc.

    How to Calculate SBI Fixed Deposit Interest Rate?

    The State Bank of India (SBI) is one among the country’s leading public sector banks which offers a wide range of fixed deposit schemes. The current interest rate on such term deposits are 6.75% for a period of 1 year.

    While calculating the amount that will be paid upon maturity, there are many factors that are taken into consideration.

    Factors influencing the maturity amount

    • The principal amount invested
    • Interest rate offered
    • Term of deposit
    • The compound interest frequency
    • Tax deduction

    For example, for a principal amount of Rs.1 lakh, an interest rate of 6.75%, and tenure of 1 year, the maturity amount will be approximately around Rs.106,750. This is if the interest is compounded annually. The aggregate interest earned on the principal is Rs.6,750.

    In case the interest is compounded quarterly for the same principal amount, interest rate and tenure, the total maturity amount will be Rs.106,923. The total interest earned will amount to Rs.6,923.

    Interest earned is usually higher if it is compounded quarterly.

    This can be calculated by multiplying the principal amount by the rate of interest and taking into consideration the tenure.

    By doing this calculation using SBI FD rates calculator, one can easily get to know the total amount of interest earned on the principal invested.

    SBI makes interest payments at regular intervals in the non-cumulative deposit. Interest may be credited on a monthly, quarterly or half-yearly basis depending on the type of scheme chosen and the mode of interest payment preferred by the customer.

    In case of a cumulative fixed deposit account, the payment of interest is made at the time of maturity along with the principal amount.

    * Interest rates may vary and can be changed, depending on the discretion of the bank

    • State Bank of India slashes FD rates to 7.05%, 6 year low

      In a huge setback for customers, State Bank of India has reduced the interest rate on its one-year Fixed Deposits to a six year low of 7.05%. This was done after the most recent round of cuts put forth by the largest bank in India and saw rates on two-year and three-year deposits being increased to 7% and 6.5%, respectively. The last time such as incident occurred was between October 1 and December 7 in the year 2010 when the rate of interest was down to 7%.

      SBI’s peer in Delhi, the Punjab National Bank has reduced the rate of interest on one-year deposits by 5bps or basis points to 7.2% and those on 2-year and 3-year deposits by 10bps or base points each to 7.05%. Bank of Baroda has maintained the rate of interest on Fixed Deposits of one and two years, but has decreased the interest rate on 3-year deposits by 5 base points to 7.25%. Important lenders from the private sector such as HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and ICICI Bank have held rates on their one-year, two years and three years deposit at 7.25%.

      Reducing the rates on fixed deposits are necessary for banks to maintain their margins while transmitting the Reserve Bank of India’s rate cuts, which has amounted to 175 base points since the January of 2015 to borrowers. Borrowers are likely to get better deals but fixed deposits are also becoming increasingly unappealing for savers.

    • SBI to Benefit from Lower Bulk Deposit Rates As Government Looks To Park less Surplus with RBI

      Deposits of over Rs 1 Crore have seen interest rates rise over the previous two months on the back of tightening liquidity conditions within the system. This rise has impacted the ability of lenders to reduce rates even though the Reserve Bank of India has hinted at this effect taking place as an outcome of its policy decisions.

      The biggest lender in the country, The State Bank of India, have raised their bulk deposit rates over the previous two months. They have coupled this with a raise in interest rates on term deposits of over Rs 1 crore by 25-125 basis points from mid-January.

As per the study conducted by SBI, a person belonging to the age group of 30-45 mainly saves for the purpose of tax saving whereas individuals above the age of 45 years save for social security related reasons.

    • SBI Slashes FD Interest Rates on 1-3 Year Tenures

      In August of this year, India’s premier public sector bank, State Bank of India (SBI) had slashed its prevalent interest rates on fixed deposits for tenures exceeding five years from 8.75% to 8.50%, a full drop of 0.25 basis points. Continuing this trend, the bank has now extended a similar cut to fixed deposits with tenures ranging from 1-3 years that host fixed deposits of less than Rs.1 crore. Starting December 8, the interest rates for such maturities will lower by 0.25%, a fall from the current rate of 8.75% to 8.50%, specifically applicable for NRE deposits that have tenures of one year and above. According to experts, this move is aimed at curbing the problem of high liquid funds available with SBI, and the lack of demand for credit that correspondingly requires an adjustment of the Asset Liability Management (ALM).

    • SBI Cuts Interest Rates on Short Term Deposits, Again

      India’s largest public sector bank, the State Bank of India (SBI) has slashed interest rates on select short term maturities, yet again. This strategic move, to be effective from November 1st 201, is the third time in the last three months that SBI has taken the axe to it’s promising short term maturities portfolio (up to Rs.1 crore maturing in 7-45 days). The lender has dropped a whole percentage point, going from the prevalent 6% to 5%, a move that will not be enthusiastically received by depositors in the higher investment bracket.

      SBI Chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya lists the bank’s excess of liquid funds and lack of demand for credit that requires an adjustment of the Asset Liability Management (ALM), as the express reason for this flash move. Experts at the India Ratings and Research Pvt Ltd believe that these gradual changes in the deposit rates will allow SBI to improve it’s Net Income Level (NIL) over the forthcoming period of time. Earlier, the premier lender had reduced the interest rate on deposits in the 7-45 days margin by 100 basis points to 6% as on 30th September. Before that, on 16th September, the bank had slashed interest rates on medium term deposits with tenures of a year to less than three years by 25 basis points to arrive at 8.75% and a further 25% basis points on deposits in the 180-210 days bracket to a value of 7.25%. All in all, it’s a period of aggressive shake-ups at SBI.

      29th October 2014

    • SBI’s Second Rate Revision on Short-Term Deposits

      SBI announced 1% rate reduction on it's FD schemes of tenors up to 45 days. The returns now stand at 6% p.a. from 7% p.a., effective October 7th, 2014. This is the second time within a span of one month that SBI has revised interest rates following 0.25% reduction in the month of September on it's medium-term deposits.

      Stiff competition in the retail loan segment and the start of the festival season prompted many banks to offer discounts on their lending rates. In order to sustain profitability banks will have to maintain a healthy balance between deposit and credit growth. While SBI’s deposit growth remains satisfactory, credit growth has not kept pace. This is a situation most banks appear to be facing given the slow uptake in corporate credit demand.

      I am very much comfortable with the FD PROCESS followed by SBI . All I had to do is, I have to just go online and place a request for FD. The information about the FD interest rate are also available online and it is very easy to find that too. No tax benefits and any time i can liquidate the funds by breaking the funds online , the same is not the case with other banks where there would be charge else it would be done the next day with SBI it is done on the same day and that is the biggest advantage here.
