Types of FD

  1. Cumulative FD
    In cumulative FD, the interest earned on the deposit is reinvested along with the principal amount for the entire tenure of the deposit. The interest is compounded annually and paid at maturity. The investor gets back the principal amount plus the interest earned over the entire tenure of the investment.
  2. Non-cumulative FD
    It is a type of FD where the interest earned on the principal amount is paid out at regular intervals, such as monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or annually. Non-cumulative FDs are suitable for individuals who prefer regular income over the course of the tenure. The interest rate for non-cumulative FDs is generally lower compared to cumulative FDs.

Things to consider when investing in Rs. 3 crore FD

  1. Interest rates
    Compare interest rates offered by various financial institutions. A small difference in interest rates can significantly impact your return on investment.

If your interest earned from your FD goes beyond Rs. 40,000 (in case of senior citizen the limit is Rs. 50,000) then you will be charged 10% TDS. Consider the impact of taxation on your overall returns.
  5. Financial institution's credibility
    Choose a reputable and secure financial institution. Make sure the institution through which you are investing is reliable and financially stable to keep your amount safe. Bajaj Finance FDs are rated “AAA” from the rating agencies like CRISI and ICRA, which is the highest standard of safety in India.
