Policies Framed by RBI – As per RBI guidelines, the change in Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and repo rate affects the interest rate of all banking instruments including the fixed deposit.

Recession – Recession results in a decrease in the interest rate offered on fixed deposit. At the time of recession, RBI is forced to release the funds in the market which it achieves by lowering the rates on cash reserve of the banks and hence, providing them with additional liquidity. As a result of high liquidity and low credit demand, banks reduce the rates on FD.

Inflation – Inflation has a positive effect on a fixed deposit interest rate. Banks typically fix interest rates of FD in a manner that it is higher than the existing inflation rates. Hence, FD rates tend to be higher in a period of rising inflation.

Current State of Economy – Economic condition of the country is the major factor that affects the fixed deposit interest rate. In a booming economy, people need and are willing to take larger credit to meet their personal and business requirements. In periods of high credit demand, banks offer higher interest rate to garner more funds through fixed deposits.
