A fixed deposit scheme is a savings option that helps you earn fixed interest on your money. Based on the payout scheme that you select at the time of the investment, you receive returns at different intervals.
Why settle for a 4% interest rate in your savings account when you can get much higher returns? Fixed deposits offer higher returns when compared to the savings account. Here’s a look at why Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposits are the best investment options for you:

Payout Options

Fixed deposits have two schemes – cumulative and non-cumulative. In cumulative fixed deposits, the interest is compounded annually and is payable at the time of maturity along with the principal. In the non-cumulative fixed deposit scheme, the interest is paid out at different intervals – monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or annually. Individuals who need periodically earnings, can opt for non-cumulative fixed deposit scheme. Usually, the interest rates for low tenor is less.
