A Recurring Deposit (RD) is a form of a term deposit that is provided by many banks. It allows the customer to deposit the needed amount of money in periodic intervals with the bank and, it acquires a certain amount of interest on the same. These periodic monthly deposits can be made over a certain period decided by the depositor.

The major difference between a fixed deposit and a recurring deposit is that a recurring deposit allows one to make regular investments in the deposit that goes on for the full duration, whereas a fixed deposit, allows one to deposit the entire sum of money at the time they open the fixed deposit account.
