"If you hold till maturity, you can earn about 150-175 basis points higher returns than bank fixed deposits with good liquidity," said Harshvardhan Roongta, CFP, Roongta Securities. A fixed deposit with HDFC Bank of six months to a year would fetch 4.65% in interest, while that with SBI for 180-210 days would return 4.4%.
