Once an investor has invested a lump sum in a fixed deposit at the prevailing 10 lakh FD interest rate, it remains the same until maturity, without fluctuation during the entire tenure of fixed. Therefore, FDs ensure investors of attractive returns and the 10 lakh FD continue to grow over time without any interest risk.
