Recurring Deposit (RD) is a special kind of Term Deposit offered by banks or NBFCs. RD requires depositing a fixed sum of money month on month throughout the period of the scheme. A recurring rate of interest is applied to the deposit money which can be finally yielded at the time of maturity. This scheme is beneficial for people with regular incomes where they can make monthly deposit of a fixed amount into their Recurring Deposit account and earn interest.
At the time of opening an RD account, the maturity value is indicated to the customer assuming that the monthly installments will be paid regularly on due dates. In case of delay of one (or few) installments, the final maturity value may differ accordingly as the difference in interest will be deducted towards penalty. The rate of penalty will be fixed upfront.
