Fixed Deposit Interest Rates Offered By Small Finance Banks

Fixed Deposit Interest Rates Offered By Small Finance Banks

Small finance banks often pay higher interest rates on deposits compared to commercial banks.

Fixed deposit (FDs), also known as term deposits, are secure financial instruments offered by private and public sector banks, small finance banks (SFBs), non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and post offices. Small finance banks pay higher interest rates on fixed deposits compared to commercial banks. Small finance banks focus on financial inclusion by provision of savings vehicles and supply of credit to small business units, small farmers, micro and small industries, and other unorganised sector entities.
