Latest Recurring Deposit (RD) Interest Rates: SBI Vs Post Office

Recurring deposits (RDs) offer option of investing small portion of money unlike fixed deposits (FD).


A recurring deposit (RD) helps one build savings through regular deposits over a fixed period of time. RD accounts offer you the option of investing a small portion of your money unlike fixed deposit (FD) accounts, which require you to block your money until a given period of time.

On maturity, the individual will be paid a lump sum amount which includes the regular, periodic investments and the interest earned on them," said Abhinav Angirish-Founder-www.investonline.in.
