Deposit in banks is no longer a profitable deal, instead of increasing your money started to decrease, know why

If the inflation rate is adjusted, then in the month of March, the term deposit has yielded a return of minus 0.03 per cent.


During the Corona period, the Reserve Bank continuously cut the interest rate. Due to this, the banks also reduced the interest rate on the loan and people also got the benefit of it. Along with the reduction in loan interest rate, interest rates were also reduced on deposits, due to which millions of investors have started fearing negative returns. They believe that keeping money in the bank is no longer a profitable deal. If it is adjusted at the rate of inflation, then a negative return is available on the term deposit.



According to the Mint report, the inflation adjusted net interest rate on term deposits, excluding January and February, was minus 0.03 per cent in the month of March. This was plus 0.30 per cent in the month of January and 0.94 per cent in the month of February. After the adjustment, the net return was minus 1.13 per cent in June 2020, minus 1.63 per cent in July, minus 1.59 per cent in August, and in the month of October it reached minus 2.71 per cent.



Term deposits have been a favorite of Indians. The Reserve Bank of India estimates that retail inflation will be 5-5.2 per cent in the current financial year till the month of September. This is the reason why some banks have increased the interest rate on deposits in the recent past.
