Mumbai: ICICI Bank today announced an increase in interest rates of term-deposits of less than Rs 1 crore by upto 25 basis points. Effective from November 15, 2018, the rate hike is applicable across various tenors for domestic term-deposits.

With this increase, the Bank offers a peak interest rate of 7.50% on term-deposits with a maturity of above 2 years upto 3 years.
Pranav Mishra, Senior General Manager & Head – Retail Liabilities Group, said, “With the prevailing volatility in financial market, we see renewed interest by customers to invest in fixed deposits which offer a combination of attractive interest rates, liquidity and assured returns. The 2-3 years tenor offers customers an opportunity to invest at a higher interest rate of 7.50% p.a. (8.00% p.a. for senior citizens). As a prudent asset allocation strategy, we feel customers should definitely look at capitalising on this opportunity.”
