News

  • Check the Latest News Related to Decreased Rates of ICICI Fixed Deposits

    • Presently, the banks have enough liquidity as there is comparatively less demand for loans because of the lockdown.
    • This has impacted the interest rates of FDs.

    ICICI Bank is cutting down its FD rates. However, this is not the case with ICICI Bank only, but most of the Banks are lowering their FD rates because of the surplus liquidity. The main reason for surplus liquidity with banks is a lesser demand for loans due to this pandemic and resultantly lockdown.

    Most of the private sector lenders including ICICI Bank have cut down the interest rates on their deposits of savings accounts that are less than Rs.50, 00, 000 to 3% from 3.25%. In the same manner, the deposits of Rs.50, 00, 000, and more have also seen reduced rates of interest from 3.75% to 3.50%.

    The main reason for the reduced rates is lockdown due to which there is less demand for loans and banks have ample liquidity. This is putting pressure on the banks and thus they have to reduce the interest rates.

    Almost all the FDs starting from 7 days to 5 years and more all have seen a cut down in their interest rate.

    On the other hand, the FDs for senior citizens are getting an additional interest rate of fifty basis points in all the maturities.
