 Note: The aforementioned FD rates are effective from October 21st, 2020.

The reduction in the latest interest rates of FD comes from a cut in repo rate by the Reserve Bank of India. After the Reserve Bank of India's announcement, the State Bank of India also cut down its FD rate of interest by 50bps across its different tenures.

It is not only the FD interact rates that came down, the government has also announced a reduction in the rate of interest of small savings schemes such as Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana, Public Provident Fund, Post Office Term Deposits, etc. The interest rates of these schemes have also been cut down between 70 bps to 140 bps.

A crisis is also seen in some of the categories of debt mutual funds. The falling equities as well mean that the banks have more space to lower the rate of interest of fixed deposits. Certificates of Deposits (CDs) have also become cheaper and the rate of interest of CDs of one month has also come down to 4.7% in April of 2020, which was around 5.5% during October 2019.
