Private sector lender Kotak Mahindra Bank is the latest bank to increase its interest rates on fixed-term deposits below Rs 2 crore. This is for the second time the bank has revised its rates within a week. The bank hiked its fixed deposit interest rates on August 10. A week later, the lender raised the interest rates on fixed deposits with maturities in the various tenures ranging from 390 days to 3 years. 

The bank is currently offering fixed deposits for tenors ranging from 7 days to 10 years, the interest rate ranges between 2.50 and 5.90 per cent for general investors, and between 3.00 and 6.40 per cent for senior citizens. The rates are already effective from August 17, 2022.
