The largest lender in the country, State Bank of India (SBI), launched a new term deposit scheme called "Utsav Deposit" in honor of the nation's 76th anniversary of independence, which was observed as Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. This fixed deposit scheme only lasts a short while and offers higher interest rates.

Let your finances do the hard work for you, SBI said in a tweet. We are pleased to introduce the "Utsav" Deposit, which offers better interest rates on your fixed deposits.

SBI is providing fixed deposits with a duration of 1000 days and an interest rate of 6.10% per year under its Utsav Fixed Deposit Scheme. Additionally, seniors will be entitled to an additional 0.50% over and above the standard interest rate. These tariffs are in place as of August 15, 2022, and the scheme is available for 75 days.

For fixed deposits with maturities of one year to less than two years, SBI raised interest rates from 5.30% to 5.45%. Deposits maturing in 2 years to less than 3 years now have an interest rate of 5.50% instead of 5.35%, while deposits maturing in 3 years to less than 5 years now have an interest rate of 5.60% instead of 5.45%.
