What is a Fixed Deposit?

Fixed Deposit is also known as FD or Term Deposit. This is a Financial Product offered by Banks, where a lump sum amount is credited to a savings account along with a predetermined period of time and interest rate. The interest rates offered on a Fixed Deposit Account are traditionally higher than the Regular Savings Accounts. 

How Does a Fixed Deposit Work?

  • Choose a Financial Institute and open an FD Account
  • Deposit a Lump Sum amount in your FD Account
  • Choose a Tenure based on your Financial Goals
  • The bank will offer you a fixed interest rate
  • Decide how you want to receive your Interest payouts
  • Once you reach the completion of your tenure, your FD will be considered as matured
  • Access your initial deposit and the interest earned during the entire tenure

Note: In some cases, the account holder could need to break the FD before its maturity, which is called premature withdrawal. In this case, the banks usually either charge any amount on it or reduce the interest rate.

  • A Fixed Deposit is a financial product offered by banks and financial institutions where you deposit a lump sum amount of money for a specific period at a fixed interest rate. The money is locked in for that duration, and you earn interest on it.

You deposit a specific amount of money into an FD account for a chosen tenure. The bank pays you interest on this amount at a predetermined interest rate. At the end of the tenure, you receive your principal amount along with the interest.

The minimum and maximum tenure for an FD can vary depending on the bank or financial institution, but typically, tenures range from 7 days to 10 years.
