  1. Simply typing ‘compare FD rate’ will take you to comparison portals.

    Best to stick to established private banks or psu banks

    As reg. investment options: to answer this you need to figure what low risk means

    That is the following needs to be factored in
    their age
    available corpus
    Income needed each month/year
    Are they dependent on children to support them
    How long do you think they will need the income (life expectancy of younger parent)
    Tax issues

    Loss of capital is only one type of risk. If you parents live for another 15 years will the present corpus support expenses if you were to invest the entire amt in FD?

    If the amt available is small and they need to depend on children for some % of expenses then it maybe best to invest entirely in FDs to guarantee some income.

    If the amt is enough to handle annual expenses for next few years then some portion should be used for income and some for investment.
