  1. I have open a rd account of 5000/pm for 5years. If i would like to close the rd account before maturity on third month of its opening. Then what will be tbe principal amount of the deposited money and what amount will be deducted from the principal amount.

    1. The penalty on premature withdrawal for recurring deposit would ary from bank to bank. In most cases there would be no deduction from principal but you would get lower interest.

    1. I cannot tell you the maturity amount until you disclose the interest rate. Assuming investment at 8%, you would get Rs 40,7728 on maturity.

    1. Choose which ever bank offers highest interest rate for your duration – here is comparison of RD interest across major banks in India

    1. Assuming you invested at 8% interest rate, you would get Rs 62,648 on maturity. Of this Rs 60,000 is the principal amount and Rs 2,648 would be interest earned.

        1. If you deposit Rs 5000 for 1 year at 8%, you get Rs 400 as interest. In case of 1 year RD, you deposit 1st installment for 12 months, 2nd installment for 11 months and so on. So you cannot get Rs 4800!

  2. Hello Sir,
    Can you please suggest to me monthly account or fixed deposit, which is best sir, i have only 20,000 present… but this amount belongs to my child, tell me which is the best….

    1. I have compared the recurring deposit interest rates across all major banks in India. The FD rates are also in this range. You can have a look and decide for yourself.

    1. @Ashish this information is not enough for suggesting where to invest. It depends on your risk bearing capacity, duration of investment among other things.

      1. I would like to invest 6000/- per month for a period of 3years.which will be better for me..rd or mutual fund??? Please suggest.

        1. It depends on your risk profile and tax bracket. Debt Mutual funds are risky but more suited for higher tax bracket else go for recurring deposit.

    Sir I want to invest rd 2000 per month for 15 years in a sip plan.can you suggest a best plan and way to invest.approximately how much I ‘ll get get in maturity….Pls ans……

    1. SIP and Recurring deposits are two different things. You can do SIP in Mutual Funds while RD is done with banks. If you are looking for 15 years investment horizon, I would recommend equity or balanced mutual fund. On an average you can expect 10 – 12% annualized returns but remember the returns are volatile. You can gain 50% in one year while loose 30% in another. But historically speaking, Indian broader market indices (SENSEX/NIFTY) have never given negative returns for period of more than 10 years.

      1. Thanks amit for quick reply.I m a housewife and interested in sip.Pls advice me how and where to start.can I invest ‘rs 2000 per month….Pls make me know the safest process with low to medium risk

  4. Dear Sir,
