When investing in fixed deposits, you need to invest a lumpsum amount in a single go. However, we all need a stable and secure monthly investment option, where we can deposit a fixed amount regularly to create a corpus over time, in a disciplined manner.
To fulfil this need, Bajaj Finance now offers a Systematic Deposit Plan, wherein you can invest in small monthly deposits. Under Systematic Deposit Plan, you can choose to save through any of the two variants – Monthly Maturity Scheme and Single Maturity Scheme.
Difference between Monthly Maturity Scheme and Single Maturity Scheme
Systematic Deposit Plan offers two schemes to suit the convenience of different kinds of savers. The two schemes are Monthly Maturity Scheme and Single Maturity Scheme. Read on to know more about these schemes.
Monthly Maturity Scheme – With Monthly Maturity Scheme, you can invest in 6 to 48 deposits, and the tenor you choose, gets applied to all the deposits you invest in. The maturity date for each of these deposits is different, as your deposits mature as per your tenor selected.
Single Maturity Scheme – With Single Maturity Scheme, you receive maturity proceeds of all your deposits on a single day. Hence, the number of deposits and the tenor you choose, has to be as per the below grid. The tenor of each deposit placed after the first deposit will gradually reduce such that all of them mature on a single date.
It is also important to note that deposits under Single Maturity Scheme cannot be renewed, and you have a common application form for both schemes.
To understand this better, let’s consider an example where the tenor is chosen as 36 months, and the number of deposits is chosen to be 6, excluding the first deposit made. If you had booked your first Single Maturity Scheme deposit on April 1, 2020 and the date of deduction for every deposit is chosen to be the 3rd of every month, here’s the tenor of every deposit, basis the above details:
|Mode of Payment||Start Date||Maturity Date||Tenor of each deposit|
|SDP 1||Cheque||01-Apr-20||01-Apr-23||3 Years, 0 Months, 0 Days|
|SDP 2||NACH||03-May-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 10 Months, 29 Days|
|SDP 3||NACH||03-Jun-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 9 Months, 29 Days|
|SDP 4||NACH||03-Jul-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 8 Months, 29 Days|
|SDP 5||NACH||03-Aug-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 7 Months, 29 Days|
|SDP 6||NACH||03-Sep-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 6 Months, 29 Days|
|SDP 7||NACH||03-Oct-20||01-Apr-23||2 Years, 5 Months, 29 Days|
The interest rate prevailing on the date of each monthly deposit will be applicable to that particular deposit.
Bajaj Finance Systematic Deposit Plan has tenor options ranging from 12 months to 60 months. You even have an option to choose any one of these three days to make your monthly deposit – 3rd, 7th or 12th of each month. However, the date you choose once, will remain fixed for the rest of the deposits.
You can look at an deposit of Rs. 5,000 monthly to start a Systematic Deposit Plan.
You need to make the first payment by account payee cheque so that the bank account gets registered. Subsequent payment for deposits will be deducted from the depositor’s bank account through NACH mandate issued in favor of BFL and duly registered with Depositor’s Bank
Premature withdrawal is permitted for either one or more deposit under the SDP provided the FD has completed more than 3 months from the date of its issuance. Current RBI regulations on premature withdrawal will be applicable.
You may also avail loan against each deposit under SDP as per the applicable norms.
