HDFC FD Interest Rates:

Before moving onto the HDFC bank FD rates, more emphasis needs to be placed on what fixed deposit means and how it can benefit customers of financial institutions.
Fixed Deposit (FD) is the type of investment instrument or scheme wherein customers deposit a lump-sum amount (be it a small or large amount) to their financier, upon which they decide a lock-in period or tenure. After deciding the lock-in period, the bank, in accordance with their Fixed Deposit scheme pays a fixed interest rate on the deposit depending on the tenure of the FD.
The tenures vary from bank to bank but conventionally, banks follow a lock-in period ranging from 1 year to 10 years.
Given below are the HDFC FD rates for Indian Residents and Non-Resident Indians (NRI)s. Fixed deposit tenures vary from 7-14 days all the way up to 5-10 years in the case of Indian Residents. And in the case of Non-Resident Indians (NRI)S, Fixed deposit tenures vary from a minimum of 1 year all the way up to 5-10 years.

What can be inferred from the above is that a lot of people choose HDFC Bank FDs over other options because HDFC offers a slightly higher rate of interest on deposits compared to its competitors. But the risk is on the slightly higher side in this case than public sector banks which may offer slightly lower interest rates but prove to be a safer and more reliable choice.
