Bank fixed deposits or FDs are fixed-income instruments which guarantee a fixed rate of return on investments. Leading lenders like State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, and Kotak Mahindra Bank offer the facility of opening a fixed deposit. Some fixed deposits come with a premature withdrawal facility while some require a compulsory lock-in period. The interest rates on fixed deposits (FDs), which are revised from time to time, vary according to the tenor of a fixed deposit. Most banks offer fixed deposits starting from seven days up to a tenor of 10 years.

Given below are the latest fixed deposit interest rates offered by SBI, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank:
