Mumbai: The country's largest lender State Bank of India on Wednesday increased the fixed deposit rates by up to 10 basis points or 0.10 per cent to 6.80 per cent on select maturities. The new rates ranging from 5 to 10 bps are applicable for deposits below Rs 1 crore and are effective immediately, the bank said on its website. One basis point is one hundredth of a per cent.

For fixed deposits maturing in one to less than two years, SBI has revised its rate to 6.80 per cent from 6.70 percent earlier. For senior citizens, the new rate for the same maturity has been increased to 7.30 from 7.20 per cent. For deposits maturing in two to less than three years, the rate has been increased to 6.80 per cent from 6.75 percent.
