Those who rely only on investments with lock-in periods wouldn't find it easy at the moment, while having cash on hand is a crucial need. With a fixed deposit, you may let your money grow without worrying about fund liquidity as you can opt for pre-mature withdrawal anytime, with a nominal penalty.


1. Why is FD preferable than SIP?

Fixed deposits provide good yields. An SIP, on the other hand, cannot guarantee returns. It is undeniable that a SIP offers larger returns than fixed deposits, however there is no assurance of returns with a SIP.

2. How much of your FD is tax-free?

If you have less than Rs 40,000 in annual interest income from all of your bank-held FDs, the bank is not allowed to take any TDS from that revenue. For senior citizens 60 years of age and older, the limit is Rs 50,000.

3. Which is better corporate fixed deposit or bank fixed deposit?

Corporate fixed deposits provide higher interest rates than bank FDs, whereas bank FDs are preferred for their safety of funds. If you would like to earn higher returns on your FD, it is better to invest in trusted corporate FDs like Shriram Fixed Deposit.

4. What is the new interest rate on FD?

Shriram Finance increased its FD interest rate up to 9.20%* p.a. which includes 0.50%* p.a. for senior citizens and 0.10%* p.a. for women depositors.
