A private sector lender, Federal Bank, has reported an increase in interest rates on savings accounts.

A private sector lender called Federal Bank has announced a rise in interest rates on savings accounts. The new rates go into effect on October 1st, 2022, according to the bank’s official website. Because Federal Bank’s savings account interest rates are based on the repo rate, they have also increased as a result of the RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee’s decision to raise the repo rate by 50 basis points.

“As the interest rates are tied to repo rates, the interest rates will fluctuate as and when the repo Rate gets changed by RBI on a T+1 basis,” Federal Bank states on its website. The rates previously mentioned will be determined using the daily End of the Day balances held in Savings Bank accounts (Resident/NRE/ONR), and they will be credited to the appropriate accounts quarterly.
