    The bank had last raised deposit rates, revisions on which generally precede similar moves on the lending side, by up to 1 percentage point in November. At least, three banks have already hiked their lending rates earlier this month. The deposit rate revisions are effective immediately, the bank said in a statement.

    On tenors from 1 year to 455 days deposit, the bank increased the interest rates to 6.25% from the earlier 5.25%. For tenors from two years to up to 10 years, the rates have been revised upwards to 6% from 5.25% earlier, the bank said.

    For deposits of 180 days to 210 days, the rate has been revised to 6.25% from 4.85% earlier. The bank said the revised rate structure will be applicable to fresh deposits and also renewals of maturing deposits. Premature penalty for bulk term deposits for all tenors will be 1%. It will be applicable for all new deposits including renewals.
