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.
