This is the ninth time in a row that small savings scheme interest rates have remained unchanged.

What is National Savings Certificate Scheme?

National Savings Certificate is a great option to save risk free in these small savings schemes. This scheme is best suited for those who want to invest for a short tenure of five years and also want to get tax benefits. While the five-year bank FD rate generally comes at 5.5 per cent interest rates, NSC gives a return of 6.8 per cent.
