Banks of the country are continuously increasing the deposit rates. In fact, due to the increase in the prime rates by the Reserve Bank, there has been an increase in the loan rates, due to which the banks have an opportunity to attract the deposits of the people and they are continuously increasing the deposit rates as well.
