The RBI has proposed a change in the classification of bulk fixed deposits, raising the threshold from Rs 2 crore to Rs 3 crore. This means deposits between Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore will now be considered retail deposits, which typically have different interest rates compared to bulk deposits.

Several banks have updated their fixed deposit interest rates and the retail deposit amount from Rs 2 crore to Rs 3 crore accordingly:

State Bank of India (SBI): Effective May 15, 2024.
