About SBI Bank

SBI, short for State Bank of India, is the largest Indian bank with a customer base of about 42 crores. It is headquartered in Mumbai and offers its customers a variety of products and services including savings accounts, fixed deposits, loans, and credit cards. Customers can park their surplus savings in multiple fixed deposit account options and enjoy attractive interest on them over a certain period. The depositor just needs to deposit the amount at the time of opening the account and choose a tenure that seems feasible to them. During the ongoing tenure, customers are not allowed to deposit any more money or withdraw either.

The FDs provided by SBI have been rated as FAAA/Stable by CRISIL. This implies that the FD offered by SBI is stable, and generates guaranteed and timely returns.
