The Reserve Bank of India has deregulated the savings bank account interest rate. Few private sector lenders responded immediately to the situation and raised their interest rates. However, the interest rate offered by the public sector lenders on the savings accounts has remained unmoved.

The Managing Director of State Bank of Hyderabad, Mr. M Bhagavantha Rao said, "There has been no impact of the hike in interest rate by a few players following deregulation. We have, in fact, added significant portfolio under SB accounts recently."

The Chairman and Managing Director of Indian bank, Mr. T.M. Bhasin said, "We have not seen any migration from our savings bank account. We have seen 16 per cent growth in the nine months till December 2011."

He also said, "I don't think the hike in savings bank rate will be done any time soon."
