Frequently asked questions

What is the tenor for investing in a Bajaj Finance FD?

When investing in a Bajaj Finance FD, you can choose tenors ranging from 12 to 60 months.

What is the minimum amount for investing in fixed deposit?

You can start investing with just Rs. 25,000 in a Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit, or start saving with just Rs. 5,000 per month in a Systematic Deposit Plan.

Can I withdraw from my fixed deposit before maturity?

Yes, you can withdraw your fixed deposit amount after a minimum lock-in period of 3 months. However, you are likely to lose out on the interest amount that you may otherwise earn on your investment. Instead of withdrawing your deposit prematurely, get the funds that you need by choosing a loan against your fixed deposit, at nominal interest rates.

How is the systematic deposit plan different from fixed deposit?

A fixed deposit is best suited for lump sum investments. A systematic deposit plan (SDP) is ideal for those looking to invest a smaller amount every month. Under an SDP, each of your deposits are counted as separate FDs, which earn interest as per the interest rates prevailing on the day of booking.

How many deposits can I make with Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit?

You are free to make any number of deposits with a fixed deposit from Bajaj Finance. Systematic deposit plans, on the other hand, offer you the option of making between 6 and 48 deposits.

How much can be deposited in a fixed deposit?

With a Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit, you can start investing with just Rs. 25,000. If you wish to deposit an amount higher than Rs. 5 crore, contact our representative.

Can I get monthly interest on FD?

Yes, you can obtain monthly interest on a fixed deposit by selecting a non-cumulative FD plan. This is suited to customers seeking a fixed income regularly from their investment.

With the non-cumulative scheme by Bajaj Finance, customers can choose to fund their regular expenses by getting a periodic income. According to the selected tenor, you can withdraw the proceeds monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.

However, the monthly interest payment has a lower interest rate than what you would get upon maturity of the FD. To check monthly interest rates, use our FD Calculator.

How can I invest in a fixed deposit?

Investing in a Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit is easy. If you’re an existing customer, you can go to our online investment form and invest right away. A new customer can also fill the online application form along with the required details and get started on their investment journey. You can also visit any of our FD branches and invest offline.

Are fixed deposits safe?

Yes, a fixed deposit is one of the safest investment avenues as your principal amount remains intact, and there is no effect of market fluctuations. However, to ensure the highest safety of your deposit, you must choose the right FD issuer. Consider investing in a Bajaj Finance FD, which carries the highest stability ratings of FAAA/ Stable by CRISIL and MAAA (stable) by ICRA. This rating indicates that your investments are never at risk and that you can be assured of timely payments and a default-free experience.

Is FD a good option?

A fixed deposit provides you with stable returns. There are several other reasons too why an FD is a good investment option: 

Flexible period of investment: With Bajaj Finance, you can invest for a tenor ranging between 12 months and 60 months. The interest rate varies according to the chosen tenor.

Loan facility: Bajaj Finance offers a loan against FD facility to cater to those looking for emergency funds.

TDS limit: The proceeds earned from a fixed deposit investment are exempt from TDS if they fall under a certain threshold of Rs. 5000 for senior and non-senior citizens.

Since FDs are unaffected by the effect of market fluctuations, returns are guaranteed.

How can I save money on a fixed deposit?

A fixed deposit allows you to invest funds for a fixed term and earn returns at a fixed interest rate. The interest rate on your FD is higher than that on a savings account, and you can grow your savings furthermore.

Here’s how you can invest in an FD to save money easily.

  • Save monthly with the systematic deposit plan; deposits start from Rs. 5,000 per month.
What will be the minimum and maximum investment tenor?

The tenor for your fixed deposit or the deposits made under the systematic deposit plan ranges from 12 to 60 months.
