    • Interest Rates On Long-Term Deposits To Be Lowered?

      With the reduction in interest rates for various small savings schemes, there is speculation that long-term interest rates will also be affected.

      The government has reduced interest rates by 10 basis points and this could spur banks to also reduce rates for their long-term deposits.

      State Bank of India (SBI) offers 6.25% on term deposits for up to 5 years. Since the benchmark marginal lending cost is based on the cost of funds in a bank, a reduction in interest rates would result in the cost of funds dropping, which in turn would reduce the lending rate.

      1st July 2017

    • SBI Decreases Interest Rate on Term Deposit

      From March 1, the interest rate of term deposits of SBI has been decreased. For a tenure of 180 days to below 1 year, the interest rate is 6.5% and for a tenure of 456 days to below 3 years, the interest rate is 6.75%.

      Last week, State Bank of India (SBI)reduced interest rates for bulk deposits at 15 basis points on all one, two and three year tenors immediately. Axis Bank on the other hand cut marginal cost of lending rate (MCLR) post demonetization of Rs500 and Rs1000 notes lead to rise in deposits.

    • SBI Cuts Rates on Bulk Deposits

      PM Modi’s fight against black money has intensifies, with banks receiving large deposits over the last month or so.

      Taking this as a cue, State Bank of India, India’s largest public sector bank, has decided to slash interest rates on bulk deposits.

      The interest rates have been cut by about 125 to 190 basis points and has supposedly been arrived upon due to the easy availability of funds.

      While all Indian banks have received over Rs.5.4 lakh crores from November 9-18, SBI alone has received up to Rs. 1.5 lakh crores, as suggested by RBI.

      SBI came to this decision after several other banks also decided to lower the rates as money felt flowing in at an incredible rate over the last month or so.

      24th November, 2016

    • 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.
