Recurring deposit is a unique type of term deposit which is offered by all the banks in India. They enable the investor or account holder to deposit a fixed amount every month into their recurring deposit account. The amount so deposited earns interest rates as applicable. The interest rates are broadly similar to that of fixed deposits. Typically, the minimum amount of monthly instalments is Rs. 1000 every month. The term needs to be adjudged at the time of opening the RD account. The tenure can vary between 6 months and a maximum of 10 years.

Any delay in payment of installment will lead to penalty in the form of reduced interest rates, there by leading to a differential in the maturity value indicated and the actual maturity value generated.
