SBI FD Account Online: Rising inflation in the country remains a headache for both the Reserve Bank of India and the central government. In the last 5 months, the central bank has increased its repo rate four times. Now it has increased from 4% to 5.90%. In such a situation, the ever-increasing repo rate is directly affecting the customers of the bank.
