What is fixed deposit?

A fixed deposit is a type of investment where you deposit a lump sum amount for a fixed period at a fixed interest rate. At the end of the tenure, you receive the amount you have invested along with the compounded interest after deducting TDS if applicable. TDS is charged when the interest amount exceeds Rs. 40,000 and for senior citizens the limit is Rs. 50,000

Types of FD

  1. Cumulative fixed deposits: In cumulative fixed deposits, the interest earned is reinvested along with the principal amount for the entire tenure of the deposit. This means that interest earned is compounded annually and paid on maturity. Investors can earn higher returns as the interest earned is added back to the principal. Cumulative fixed deposits are best suited for investors who are looking for long-term benefits as it allows compounding of interest.
  2. Non-cumulative fixed deposits: In non-cumulative fixed deposit, the interest earned on the deposit is paid out at regular intervals. Investors can choose the payout frequency as per their requirements like monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annually. Non-cumulative fixed deposits are best suited for investors who are looking for regular payouts.
