      "Good Service"
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      When I have started to deposit the money I was getting good interest rate but know the rate of interest is decreased with SBI Fixed deposit. I have started the fixed deposit around 6 years ago with SBI. Initially I got around 9.5% as interest rate but now I am getting only 7.5% interest rate. The service with State is good.

      It has been two years when I opened fixed deposit with State bank of India. The period is for five years. Since I completed two years, three years to go. Interest rate is of 11%. Actually SBI is located near to my house so I feel more comfortable in visiting the bank at any instance. All the staffs are very friendly and very cooperative.

      Compared to other banks SBI offering good interest rate on fixed deposit, they offered me 7.95% of interest. I have the amount of Rs. 2.4 lakhs for the tenure of three years. After the maturity period I got the amount around 2.9 lakhs. I am very much fine with that.

      I had invested in fixed deposit with the State bank of India and the interest rate is very less like its around 7.15%, also the returns are also very less, which will be also applicable with the tax. Services provided by them is really not good and I would like to suggest that they need to provide the customer service in a much better way.

      The prime reason for selecting SBI for the Fixed Deposit is the rate of interest which is 7.8% as it is the best in the market. I am holding this FD for a period of 4 to 5 years of time. No drawback nor challenges as such. This FD was opened at the Branch.

      Interest that I earn on my SBI FD is awesome. I am not getting any prefential interest for my profile though I am a defense person The bank is next to my locality that is the benefit. I had been to the branch for opening this account I had produced a cheque for opening this FD. On the same lines, I guess they require a SBI account for opening FD with the said bank.
