When it comes to investment with a guaranteed return, bank fixed deposits (FDs) continue to be popular investment products not just among senior citizens, who are looking for guaranteed income, but also among investors who are looking for low-risk investment tools.  Before choosing an FD, you should compare the interest rates on offer.  Investors are most likely to put their money in a bank that gives them the highest interest rate. But the rate offered by top lenders like the State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and others have been falling for some time. On the contrary, some small finance banks (SFBs) are offering lucrative interest rates when compared to top lenders. Although, they have also cut the rates.

Small finance banks offer the highest interest rate ranging from 6.75% and 7%.
