ICICI Bank new FD rates in comparison with those of SBI and HDFC Bank
- ICICI Bank has cut interest rates on fixed deposits citing the impact of COVID-19 lockdown.
- The bank says lower interest rates will help one of the biggest lenders in the country reduce the cost of funds.
- Here we compare ICICI Bank’s present FD interest rates with those of SBI and HDFC Bank.
As per the announcement, deposits up to one year will henceforth fetch an interest of 5.25% while those deposited for more than a year will invite 5.7-5.75% interest rates.
The bank’s interest rate cut follows the expert opinion that the banks are now flush with deposits and the scope for additional lending has shrunk due to the lock-down economy. A week back, State Bank of India (SBI), the biggest lender in India, declared a 20-basis point reduction in FD rates.

Fixed deposits have been one of the safest options for investors in India due to the assured returns they offer on pre-set investment periods. FD interest rates are significantly higher than those of regular savings accounts.
One of the advantages of FDs is their flexibility. The investors can choose to deposit their money for specific periods ranging from 7 days to 10 years depending upon their investment goals and financial position.
Depending on the tenure for which the investor chooses to invest the money, the bank can be selected for an FD investment to get a significant gain in interest rates.
