By investing in issuers like Bajaj Finserv who offer high interest rates and additional features on Fixed Deposits, you can make the most of your investments. A 3-year FD with payout only on maturity offers an interest rate of up to 8.75% for regular investors and 9.10% for senior citizens. Apart from this, you can also enjoy 0.25% additional FD interest rate on renewal of your FD.

What’s more, based on your interest payout requirement, you can choose your payout frequency and set it to receive income every month, quarter, half-year or yearly, depending on your financial needs. If you aren’t interested in long tenors, make use of the special tenor scheme of 15 months that offers 0.05% extra interest than a 12-month FD. Further, the interest rates on this special tenor scheme are higher for senior citizens. Manage your account online conveniently without having to rush to the nearest branch for simple queries or information and acquire a loan using your FD as collateral in times of need. Get started now and fill in a simple online application form to benefit from assured returns.
