The interest rates on Fixed deposits offered by Union Bank of India are a bit disappointing if we compare them with what other banks have with them to offer us. Fortunately, the threshold in case of this bank is 5 crore (rather than 1 crore in most of the banks) from where the interest rates take a huge drop (interest rates are lower than the normal investment up to five years).

For senior citizens, the rate of interest varies because of an additional 0.75 percent which is fairly good in comparison with most of the banks which give 0.50 percent only. The highest of the high rate of interest offered is 6.85% for investment for more than a year up to 10 years.
