“The first thing to focus on is a reliable scheduled bank so that the safety aspect is addressed. Then one should look at the tenure they want to invest for. If they just want to invest for getting decent returns consider special tenures offering good rates. Else go for relatively shorter tenures like two years. That way reinvestment of the maturity at that time can happen at potentially higher rates, as the interest rates are expected to go up further for a year or so,” said Suresh Sadagopan, founder of Ladder7 Financial Advisors.
