5 Bank FDs That Can Fight The Inflation Battle For You

Due to the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic-related liquidity infusion and the Russia-Ukraine war-induced hyperinflation, the repo rate hike momentum is gaining strength. For June 2022, the retail inflation rate in India is 7.01%. This shall be reflected in the FD interest rates soon. However, there is a delay in the transmission of the benefits of a rate hike from the banks to the depositors.

Now, it is a good time to park your money in bank FDs. But, it is safe to say this is not the best time to open a long-term FD or renewal of a big FD. In short, it will be a wise strategy to book an FD with a tenure of 6 months to one year to earn maximum benefits from the hike during the investment period. You will get a better rate at the time of FD renewal, and then, you can reinvest them and earn bigger returns.

Now, let us check out the top 5 bank FDs you can trust to fight the inflation battle for you and help you reap benefits in the current interest rate scenario.
