After the latest deposit rate hike, SBI will offer 9% interest on 1-10 year retail deposits. Till date, this bank was offering 8.75% on such deposits.

 

Base rate is the rate below which banks cannot lend. This move from the country's largest lender may prompt other public sector lenders to hike their base rates.
