Note

Banks had lowered interest rates in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Senior citizens who depend on a steady stream of income have been struck the hardest by the current low interest rate climate. Leading banks, such as State Bank of India (SBI), promise senior citizens a maximum of 6.2 percent on fixed deposits with a period of 5-10 years, whereas post office small savings schemes promise a better rate if the investment goal is for the long term. However, if a senior citizen is searching for a short-term investment, such as one or two years, the above-mentioned fixed deposits can be considered. Since all of the above-mentioned banks are covered by DICGC for a Rs 5 lakh insurance cover, investing for 1 to 2 years in the above-mentioned bank FDs is secure, which is a consideration that always outweighs interest rates.
