State Bank of India increased fixed deposit rates following the recent repo rate hike. Across tenures, the increase has been 15-20 basis points. Typically, the rate increase has been made for deposits maturing between 211 days and less than 3 years. It should be noted that the increase only applies to deposits of less than Rs. 2 crores.

A deposit of 211 days to less than one year will now yield 4.6 percent per year. In addition, Fds with 1 year to less than 2 years will now offer 4.6 percent, up from 4.4 percent previously. Furthermore, Fds with a term of one to two years will now yield a 5.3 percent return.

Investors are advised to invest in fixed deposits for shorter terms because interest rates are expected to rise in the long run.

If you are investing for the long term, you can break your deposit and reinvest because there will be charges. It is possible that interest rates will rise by at least 50 to 75 basis points over the next few months. The RBI is likely to raise interest rates in the future.
