Protection of investment ... Guaranteed return. What's more, there is only one fixed deposit that can be withdrawn when needed. Bank fixed deposits are an immediate reminder for those who want to hide money for future needs.
There are mainly two types of deposits in banks. One is Demand Deposits and the other is Term Deposits. In addition, we are all familiar with savings account and current account demand deposits. The amount of money deposited in these can then be taken as and when required.
When it comes to time limit deposits, there are four main types
When deciding on which bank to deposit, we first need to look at what banks are available to us. Interest rates on various deposits should be first checked on the websites of the respective banks. Banks offer a higher rate of interest from 0.25% to 0.50% for those over 60 years of age.
Fixed Deposits (FDs) and Recurring Deposits (RDs) are both safeguards for investment and provide a stable return to customers. Liquidity opportunities are similar in both cases. There is the option of taking out a loan on these deposits or withdrawing some money before maturity.
In terms of returns, fixed deposits get the first place compared to the two deposits. We deposit all the money in a fixed deposit at once. That is why the interest from the first month is at maximum. Recurring deposits mean we deposit some money in the bank for a month. There are differences in interest. The month-to-month interest rate also varies.
Returns are higher in fixed deposit with the addition of common interest and cyclical interest. The investor will no longer receive full interest on the recurring deposit investments. All the benefits are greater if the duration of fixed deposits is longer. Taxes pay interest on the interest on these two deposits
Short Term Deposits: Short term deposits are sums deposited over a period of seven days to six months.
Special Term Deposits: Deposits made from six months to ten years are called special term deposits. Compound interest is paid once in three months.
Fixed Deposits: Deposits that are payable on interest on the money we deposit at least once a month or for 3 months, 6 months and a year.
Recurring Deposits: A recurring deposit is best if you want to save a certain amount each month. Compound interest is paid every three months.
