New Delhi: Fixed Deposit (FD) is considered to be the most preferred choice among the Indians for saving. One of the biggest reasons for its popularity is that the depositor gets good interest as well as a guarantee of money. Notably, the demand for FD has risen in the last couple of days as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) increased the interest rate by 40bps.

Following the RBI’s move, the State Bank of India (SBI), India’s largest lender, hiked its rate of FDs for its customers.
