The Reserve Bank of India reduced the repo rate by another 25 basis points on October 4, bringing it to 5.15 per cent - it's lowest in nine years.
The RBI maintained an accommodative stance, due to the prolonged economic slowdown. Additionally, higher market volatilities, poor investment sentiment and negative returns on market-linked instruments, have weakened investment portfolios.
The interest rates for most new savings schemes and policies have also been reduced, and the conventional savings method of pooling money into fixed deposits has now become a preferred investment avenue.
Despite the recent repo rate cut and the reduction of FD interest rates by most financiers, fixed deposits continue to rule the roost. As one of the safest alternatives for savings, fixed deposits promise high returns.
Known to offer one of the most competitive interest rates on FDs, Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit proves to be a cut above the rest. This investment option offered by Bajaj Finserv, through its lending and investment arm Bajaj Finance Ltd, provides some of the best features and benefits. Read on to learn how you can enjoy a hassle-free investment experience:
