The lender also informed on its website that the change in FD interest rates will be applicable to all deposits below Rs 1 crore from today.


After the latest revision, the bank is now offering 6.80 per cent interest rate on those FDs which have a maturity period of one or two years; the previous rate was at 6.7 per cent. The SBI FD interest ratewith a maturity period of one or two years for senior citizens has also gone up to 7.30 per cent.
