Better Than Fixed Deposits

Debt funds whose returns are more than a conventional fixed deposit instrument for a given time period. Fixed deposit rates vary from bank to bank and in different time periods also. So, a standard annualized rate of 8% p.a. is taken as a benchmark for fixed deposits. The rate is slightly greater than the rate offered by a conventional fixed deposit instrument. The debt schemes which provide better than 8% annualized rate will fall under this category.

  1. A fixed deposit is subject to TDS @ 10% (20% for non-PAN users) by the bank if interest income is greater than Rs. 40,000 as per Assessment Year 2020-21, except some exceptions. Please note that FD interest income is taxable as per the income-tax slab rate. So, an individual lying in the higher tax bracket will have to bear additional tax basis his/her tax slab apart from TDS.
  2. Debt funds are subject to Short-term Capital Gains tax (upto 3 years) as per income tax slab and Long-term Capital Gains tax (more than 3 years) @ 20% after indexation.
  3. No Securities Transaction Tax on sale of debt fund units
