News About Kotak Mahindra Bank Recurring Deposit Interest Rates

  • Kotak Mahindra Bank supports slash in savings rate

    As per reports, Kotak Mahindra has initiated a move to slash its small savings rate, which currently stands at 7.7%. While speaking to the media, the executive chairman of Kotak Mahindra, Uday Kotak, said the move was made amidst the continuous battle with the postal system for deposits with disparity in rates.

    He further said the small savings rates are higher than what the government securities yield. In order to raise deposits, there should be some sort of balance in interest rates across banks, he further added. He also suggested that the small savings rates should be linked to RBI’s (Reserve Bank of India) benchmark rate so that all banks are able to roll out attractive rate of interest on small savings. Only interest rates of special schemes like Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana need to be regulated, he suggested. Currently, RBI repo rate stands at 6%.

    However, it is being speculated that any cut in small savings rate can cause a furore among the public as the scheme is one of the few risk-free investment channels. However, the bank officials argue that the proposed cut in small savings rate would slash the government’s interest costs.

    In recent years, there has been a noticeable slump in bank deposits. However, eminent economist, Pronab Sen, says that small savings is not the root cause of the slump in bank deposits. According to Pronab, the slump is more likely due to the sharp increase in mutual fund investments. He also expressed shock over small savings schemes, which are long-term deposits, are being proposed to be linked to RBI repo rate.

  • Kotak Mahindra Bank Will Not Reduce Their Rates oN Deposits

    Top executives at Kotak Mahindra Bank stated that they do not wish to cut their interest rate on their savings bank deposits anytime in the near future as it has helped them immensely to grow their base twice the industry rate in the past.

    Unlike State Bank of India who offer only 3.5% p.a on savings bank account, Kotak Mahindra Bank offers 6% p.a., which is very high than its peer banks.

  • Rate of 1 year Fixed Deposit Reduced By Kotak Mahindra Bank to 7%

    Kotak Mahindra Bank, one of the country’s leading private-sector lender has brought down the interest rates on fixed-deposits of one year by 25 basic points to 7% - visibly lower than 7.05% offered by the State Bank of India on the same. This new rate will come into effect on Monday. This move by Kotak Mahindra Bank comes close on the heels of a similar lowering of interest rates by its larger competitor HDFC. Earlier, the State Bank of India had rolled back interest rates by 10bps – starting on October 24 – bringing it to a six-year low. HDFC had followed suit - cutting interest rates by 25 bps – starting November 8. Kotak has also slashed interest rates on two and three year deposits by 50bps each - bringing it down to 6.75%. Meanwhile, SBI’s rates for the same are at 7% and 6.5% respectively – and HDFC offers the same at the rate of 7% for both terms. Meanwhile, private sector competitors ICICI Bank and Axis Bank continue to offer interest rates of one, two and three year deposits at 7.25%.

    With the recent demonetization move undertaken by the government and the resulting stoppage of 500 and 1000 rupee notes, the average quantum of deposits in banks have witnessed a significant rise.
