2) Save Money with Recurring Deposit

In India, fixed deposit (FD) and recurring deposit (RD) are the most popular investment schemes. Investing in FD and RD are considered very safe investment options as there are hardly any instances of banks defaulting on these. If you have saved a considerable sum of money, then you can invest in FD. Not everyone would have saved enough to invest in FDs, and hence banks have come up with the RD scheme, in which you invest certain amount each month.

Recurring Deposit is a fixed amount term deposit under which you invest a certain amount each month. Money deposited in RD earns annual interest. All banks and some non banking financial companies (NBFCs) offer the facility of RD.

You can choose the tenure of the deposit and the minimum monthly deposit you wish to make as per your convenience. RD schemes are usually more flexible than FD schemes and are generally preferred by those who want to save and build a sizeable corpus for the future.

The Below Table Shows the Key Features of RD:

Interest Rate

4.00% to 8.00%

Minimum Deposit Amount

Investment Tenure
