New interest rates announced by the Money and Credit Council have failed to convince depositors to park their money in banks, secretary-general of the Iranian Private Banks’ Association said.

The MCC, Iran’s top monetary decision-making body, decided on Tuesday to raise interest on one-year maturity deposits by 1 percentage point to 16%.
Likewise, interest on two-year deposits was set at 18%. On short-term deposits with 3-month maturity, the rate increased by 2 percentage points to 12%, the Central Bank of Iran website reported.
