RD Calculator


Recurring Deposit scheme is offered by almost all banks (RD schemes of SBI, PNB, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, IDBI Bank, Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Corporation Bank  ) in one form or the other.  Recurring Deposit is very popular among the salaried class, specially who can afford to save only few hindered or say few thousand rupees per month.   This scheme is a boon for people who do not have a large amount of savings and thus can not use the Fixed Deposit scheme of the banks.  Under this scheme, the customer deposits a minimum amount (normally fixed) every month, and bank pays the interest at the pre-determined rates (which is usually the  same as applicable to fixed deposits ).  At the end of the period i.e. on maturity date, the customer is paid the maturity value i.e. principle deposited and the interest payable.
