The revised FD rates, to apply for deposits below Rs 1 crore, will come into effect from tomorrow, it said.
OBC, however, has kept the deposit rates for maturities of above one year unchanged.
The increase has been effected for fixed deposits ranging from one month to one year.

OBC, however, raised the fixed deposit rate to attract short-term funds.
