SBI raises fixed deposit rate by 0.2% on select maturity

Days after RBI hiked short-term lending (repo) rate by 0.25 per cent, State Bank of India (SBI) today raised fixed deposit rate by 0.2 per cent on select maturity.

With the revision, term deposit between 180-210 days less than Rs. 1 crore would now earn 7 per cent against existing 6.80 per cent, SBI said in a statement.

The new rate would be effective from tomorrow, it added.

However, there is no change in the interest rates for other maturities in less than Rs. 1 crore bracket. For high-valued fixed deposit above Rs. 1 crore, interest rates have been reduced between 0.25 per cent to 2 per cent.

The maximum rate reduction of 2 per cent is there in the tenor of 7-60 days. The rate would be 6.50 per cent as against existing 8.50 per cent.

Besides, over Rs. 1 crore term deposit between 61 days to 1 year would also attract lower interest of 7.75 per cent against 8.25 per cent, down 0.5 per cent.

At the same time, 2-10 year fixed deposit in the same segment would earn 8.50 per cent, down 0.25 per cent. Earlier this week, RBI raised short-term lending (repo) rate by 0.25 per cent to 7.75 per cent making cost of fund expensive for the banks.

At the same time, the RBI lowered marginal standing facility (MSF) rate by a similar margin to 8.75 per cent. Accordingly, the bank rate is reduced to 8.75 per cent with immediate effect. Consequently, the  reverse repo rate is adjusted upward to 6.75 per cent.

The RBI has left unchanged other rates such as the cash reserve ratio at 4 per cent and the mandatory holdings in government securities and other  liquid assets as a solvency measure (SLR) at 23 per cent.
