NRI FD Interest Rates
At a Glance
DBS Treasures allows Non-Resident Indians to open NRI accounts and invest their money through fixed deposits at competitive interest rates.
The interest rates are different for each type of term deposit account i.e. NRE, NRO and FCNR accounts. For FCNR deposits, the rate of interest also varies based on the currency the account is held in.
Opening a fixed deposit is beneficial for NRIs since it allows for:
- Secure investments
- A convenient way to deposit and save money earned in India via NRO fixed deposits
- A safer way to grow your overseas earnings via NRE and FCNR fixed deposits
- High returns
Types of fixed deposits
NRE Fixed Deposit
DBS Treasures NRE fixed deposit accounts enable you to earn competitive interest on your foreign currency earnings. DBS Treasures NRE fixed deposits are fully repatriable. Moreover, interest earned on NRE deposits is tax-free in India.
NRO Fixed Deposit
DBS Treasures NRO fixed deposit accounts allow for higher interest earnings on income earned in India while you are overseas. DBS Treasures NRO fixed deposits can be opened jointly with resident or non-resident Indians.
When you are abroad and earning in foreign currency, you may still want to retain some of your funds in India. Your best option could be a Foreign Currency Non-Resident Fixed Deposit, commonly known as FCNR deposit. Deposit funds in foreign currencies and earn higher interest rates with an FCNR FD.
