  • Senior Citizen Savings Scheme or SCSS – Increased by 0.2% (now at 8.2%)

Note – Since the interest rates of RBI FLoating Rate Savings Bonds 2020 (Taxable) are pegged to NSC interest rates, the above hike in NSC rates by 0.70% will also lead to an increase in RBI FLoating Rate bonds by a similar amount. The RBI Floating Bond rates are always 0.35% above NSC rates. So with NSC rates now at 7.7%, then assuming they remain at the same level, the RBI Floating Rate bond rates will also increase to 8.05% per annum during the next review in June 2023.
