Top banks pay interest rates to the tune of 3.50-6.85 per cent on fixed deposits – also known as term deposits – up to Rs. 2 crore. State Bank of India, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank provide a range of maturity options to retail customers for setting up fixed deposits, starting from seven days to as long as 10 years. All three banks provide slightly better returns to senior citizen customers.
