Now this is plain and simple. People are attracted to those banks that offer high rates of interest. Irrespective of the deposits offers, Indian banks are recognized as the best and the safest option to go with. Depositing in SBI or any other nationalized banks are not considered a very good option by many. Some offer 8% or 8.5% for your money while some other offers deposit interest rates up to 10%. Though the variation might seem very small, even a minor difference of 0.5% interest rate will fetch you around Rs.500 more per year. This way over the years your hard earned money will increase in figure. Therefore, whenever you plan on depositing your money, make sure you deposit it with higher rate of interest.
For Non-Resident Indian, the benefits of making NRE Deposits are awesome. NRI gets a waiver on income tax as whatever money you sent from abroad is considered income tax-free plus the interest you can bag.
