The State Bank has also cut the interest rates on its long-term deposits. For fixed deposits maturing in 2 years to less than 3 years, the bank has reduced the interest rate by 5 basis points and now it will fetch you an interest rate of 6.70 percent.

For fixed deposits maturing in 3 years to less than 5 years, SBI will offer an interest rate of 6.60 percent - previously these FDs were fetching an interest rate of 6.70 percent. For deposits maturing in 5 years to 10 years, the bank has cut the interest rate from 6.60 percent to 6.50 percent.

The State Bank of India had earlier tweaked interest rate on some select maturities effective from 9th May 2019.

Many banks have been cutting the interest rates on fixed deposits because of a fall in interest rate in the financial system & surplus liquidity. Axis Bank, BoB, HDFC Bank, Kotak Mahindra, PNB are few banks who had revised their fixed deposit rates this month.

If compared to SBI’s interest rates, saving schemes like NSC and PPF are presently offering a return of 7.9 percent, whereas Kisan Vikas Patra is giving 7.6 percent with a lock-in period of 113 months. This may trigger problems for many banks as savings may flow into these instruments. Even before the State bank of India announced the reduction, the Bank of Baroda had slashed its deposits rates by 25 BPS & its 1 year and 5 to 10 year deposit rates now stand at 6.45%.
