Airtel Payments Bank announces 6% p.a. interest on deposits over Rs. 1 lakh

Airtel Payments Bank today said that its customers will get an increased interest rate of 6% p.a. on savings account deposits of over Rs. 1 lakh.

This follows Airtel Payments Bank becoming the first payments bank to implement the enhanced day-end savings limit of Rs 2 lakh as per the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines. 

Anubrata Biswas, MD, and CEO, Airtel Payments Bank, said, “RBI’s increased savings deposit ceiling is a major milestone for payments banks as this was a key ask from customers. With an attractive 6% p.a. rate of interest on deposit sums in excess of one lakh, we are making our banking proposition even more rewarding. Our unmatched footprint of 500,000 banking points and a global first secure and simple experience delivered digitally, Airtel Payments Bank offers a market leading proposition for both the urban digital and the rural underbanked customer.”
