A tax-saving fixed deposit is just like any fixed deposit, only it gives you tax benefits. Not all fixed deposits offer tax benefits. Only tax-saving fixed deposits provide you this benefit. A tax-saving fixed deposit has a lock-in period of 5 years. You get a tax deduction up to INR 1.5 Lakhs a year, under Section 80C of the income tax act.
