  • SBI Hikes Up Rate of Interest On 1 Crore To 10 Crore Deposits

    The excess liquidity that had flooded the banking sector due to demonetization, is drying out. As per Nomura Global Research, deposit growth normalized to 9.8 percent in the month of October. Bank credit has moved up as well. Now State Bank of India has hiked its rate of interest on bulk deposits. It has, also, reversed its rate cut immediately after demonetization.

    In the previous month, SBI had cut down the interest rate on deposits below 1 crore Rupees by 25 basis points. It has decreased the space between bulk deposits and high yielding retail deposits to 175bps, earlier it was 200bps. With this increase, space has narrowed down further to 100bps.

    As per a Times of India report, the revised rates are a reflection of stiffening liquidity due to the move reducing the distance between wholesale rates and retail rates. As per C. Venkat Nageswar, DMD (Deputy Managing Director) global markets, SBI- "The decision was solely pushed by investment opportunities."

    While the spike in rates looks tempting, cautiously shop around before investing your money. According to the media reports, these bulk deposit rates, even after the spike, are lesser than what is offered by other banks for bulk deposits.
