Best Fixed Deposit Interest Rate for Senior Citizens

in Fixed Deposits

Rahul just left a comment answering another reader about the best fixed deposit interest rate available for senior citizens right now.

I was certainly not aware of this, and at 10.5% for 8 years – Canara Bank is offering the best interest rate to senior citizens right now.

Some other banks that offer high interest rates are Axis Bank, IDBI and Tamil Nadu Mercantile Bank – all of them offer 10% to senior citizens for varying durations.

If you know of anything better then please leave a comment and I’ll update the post, and here is my earlier post about banks with high interest rates on their fixed deposits.

I hope that the readers of onemint will find following links useful

A (a) Fixed Deposit Rates
You can get FD rates based on institution types like banks (Public Sector / Nationalized Banks, Indian Private Sector Banks, Foreign Banks, Cooperative Banks, Post Office Savings Schemes, Companies etc.). You can get interest rates selecting as per deposit period range or you can select specific deposit period for your fixed deposit. Many banks pay different rates of interest for large deposits, you can select this criteria as well.

You can also search for senior citizen and non senior rates as well.

The search is broadly categorized in 4 types:

1. FD rates based on institution type/deposit period range
2. FD rates based on institution type/specific deposit period
3. FD rates in selected institutions/deposit period range
4. FD rates in selected institutions/deposit period range

You then fill your search criteria and the resulting table can runs into hundreds of pages. In many cases you have to narrow your search or you have to be specific in your search so that the table may not run in many pages.

You can sort this table as per you choice as per alphabetical list of institutions, period of deposit and rate of interest (highest to lowest) by clicking on the first row of the table.

B. Calculators

Fixed Deposit Interest Calculator – Calculate how much interest payments you can get based on your fixed deposit amount, interest rate and interest payment period.

FD Maturity Calculator – Calculate the maturity amount and effective yield (compound interest rate) of your fixed deposit based on your deposit amount, interest rate and duration

C. Find Bank IFSC Codes, MICR Codes, Postal Addresses
