Very bad!. The treasury FIXED DEPOSIT Interest rate has been always 1% higher than Bank rate. In fact it attracted huge amount of Deposits from every part of Kerala keeping and balancing the financial position of the government. By reducing the interest rate the government is helping the banking lobby resulting empty treasury. Who will get the benefits? Instead of using our own money begging for bank money for what?. Government treasury is providing all services free to the public. But bank deducts service charge for everything. The treasury department is fully computerised and capable to do all banking activities better. But why this is happening..........????????????????. who will suffer?......we the poor people of kerala

Yes,I also share the same comments. The rates should have been higher than bank rates. The Govt can not attract FDs.
