Banks’ Deposit Rate Surges to All-Time High
After the State Bank of Pakistan recently increased its policy rate, the minimum deposit rate (MRD) or profit rate offered to customers by various commercial banks soared to an all-time high level of 18.5 percent (SBP).
The new deposit rate went into effect the day after the new monetary policy was announced. From April 1st onward, banks will apply this rate to deposits made in March 2023.
Customers and investors who would receive up to Rs. 18,500 on an investment of Rs. 100,000 excluding various taxes and duties are drawn in by the rising profit rates offered by banks on savings accounts and term finance certificates, which also attracts significant deposits from customers and investors.
In comparison to Islamic banks, conventional banks offer higher deposit profit rates. However, due to the importance of religion to most people, savings accounts or term deposit certificates (TDR) are preferred in Islamic banks.
Due to MDR, which increases customer profit rates, the banking industry’s overall deposits have been rising. Around Rs. 22.75 trillion worth of deposits were made in the banking sector as a whole, which is the highest amount ever. The number of savings and investment products offered by various financial institutions, such as mutual funds and National Savings, increased in addition to savings accounts and investment certificates.
Depending on the length of time that customers and investors hold their investments, these institutions may also charge for services and deduct government taxes from the overall gain.
