On the occasion of India’s 76th Independence Day, many banks have announced new fixed deposit schemes with attractive interest rates for a limited period to lure investors. Banks such as the State Bank of India (SBI), the Bank of Baroda (BoB), Axis Bank, and Karnataka Bank have launched new deposit interest rates in order to entice customers with higher fixed deposit (FD) interest rates.
