Recurring Deposit

What is Recurring Deposit (RD)?

  • A Recurring Deposit, commonly known as RD, is a unique term-deposit that is offered by Indian Banks. It is an investment tool which allows people to make regular deposits and earn decent returns on the investment. 
  • Due to the regular deposit factor and an interest component, it often provides flexibility and ease of investments to users/individuals.
  • However, it is essential to know that RDs are different from Fixed Deposits/FDs . RDs are flexible in most aspects. An RD account holder can choose to invest a fixed amount each month while earning decent interest on the amount. RDs are an ideal saving-cum-investment instrument.
  • Most major banks in India offer Recurring Deposit Accounts, with a term that often ranges between 6 months  to 10 years, also providing individuals with the opportunity to choose a term according to their needs. However, the interest rate, once determined, does not change during the tenure.
  • On maturity, the individual will be paid a lumpsum amount which includes the regular investments as well as the interest earned.

Below are the Recurring Deposit (RD) Interest Rates offered by major banks for various durations :
