IDBI Bank also runs a special FD scheme for senior citizens named Naman Deposit Scheme. In this deposit scheme, 0.75 percent interest is being given to senior citizens. This FD scheme of IDBI Bank is applicable till September 30, 2022.

Two years ago, no one would have imagined that there would be such a bumper return on Fixed Deposit (FD). See the benefit of increasing the repo rate, see how much bumper benefit is being received on FD today. It seems that there is a competition among the banks to pay more and more interest. The Reserve Bank is going to increase the repo rate again very soon, after which the FD rates will increase even more.

Meanwhile, many banks have started special FD scheme for senior citizens, on which interest is being paid more than the general public. However, such FD schemes are being run for a short period of time or say for a fixed period only. The senior citizen customer has to deposit money in this fixed period, after which he will get the benefit of higher returns.

If you want to take advantage of higher interest, then senior citizens will have to invest in this fixed period. If you want to take advantage of higher returns, then you will have to invest in the special FD scheme by 30 September because after that this plan will be closed.
