SBI raises fixed deposit rates. Check out the new rates here
Oddly enough the SBI claimed that the transfer was part of a strategy to freeze the accounts that did not comply with the know-your-customer requirements!

Mumbai: The country's largest lender State Bank of India Wednesday increased the fixed deposit rates by up to 10 basis points or 0.10 per cent to 6.80 per cent on select maturities.

The new rates ranging from 5 to 10 bps are applicable for deposits below Rs 1 crore and are effective immediately, the bank said on its website. One basis point is one hundredth of a per cent.

This follows an increase in deposit rates by HDFC Bank by up to 0.5 per cent and ICICI Bank by up to 0.25 per cent on select maturities earlier this month.

For fixed deposits maturing in one to less than two years, SBI has revised its rate to 6.80 per cent from 6.70 percent earlier. For senior citizens, the new rate for the same maturity has been increased to 7.30 from 7.20 per cent.

For deposits maturing in two to less than three years, the rate has been increased to 6.80 per cent from 6.75 percent.

Senior citizens will get a rate of 7.30 per cent as against 7.25 per cent on deposits with tenor of two to less than three years.

The lender has kept deposits rates unchanged for other maturities.

It is offering a deposit rate of 6.80 per cent for tenure three years to less than five years.
