NEW DELHI - The Indian government has increased interest rates on some small savings schemes for the July-September quarter, it said on Friday.
The interest rate on the five-year recurring deposit has been hiked by 30 basis points (bps), the highest for any instrument in this revision.
The interest rate on one-year deposits and two-year deposits have been raised by 10 bps each, while rates on savings deposits will remain unchanged at 4%.
The government reviews and revises interest rates every quarter, and has aligned the increase in deposit rates with higher interest rates.
The new rates will be applicable from July 1.
