This may weigh on the banks' margins for a few quarters at least. Data released by RBI showed that the weighted average domestic term deposit rate (WADTDR) for PSBs has increased to 6.79 percent in August, which is higher by 5 basis points from the previous month. PSBs account for 70 percent of all deposits in the Indian banking system.
