Latest Fixed Deposit Terms: Following the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) latest monetary policy meet, several major banks have adjusted their fixed deposit terms and interest rates in line with the new regulations. RBI governor Shaktikanta Das on Friday announced a change in the definition of bulk fixed deposits, suggesting that banks’ fixed deposits of Rs 3 crore and above will now be considered bulk deposits, as opposed to the current threshold of Rs 2 crore.
“On a review of the bulk deposit limit, it is proposed to revise the definition of bulk deposits as ‘Single Rupee term deposit of Rs 3 crore and above’ for SCBs (excluding RRBs) and SFBs. Further, it is also proposed to define the bulk deposit limit for Local Area Banks as ‘Single Rupee term deposits of Rs 1 crore and above’, as applicable in case of RRBs,” Das had said.

Consequently, individual deposits between Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore will be categorized as retail fixed deposits, which typically have different interest rates compared to bulk deposits, according to an ET report.
Several banks have already implemented these changes and updated their retail deposit amounts from Rs 2 crore to Rs 3 crore.
HDFC Bank and Bank of Baroda have revised their fixed deposit interest rates and updated the retail deposit amount, with the changes taking effect from June 12, 2024. Utkarsh SFB has also revised its FD interest rate and updated the retail deposit amount, effective from June 7, 2024.
