Fixed Deposit Amount
How are FD returns calculated?
You can calculate FD returns in two different ways.
Simple Interest formula:
M = P + (P x r x t/100),
P is the principal amount that you deposit
r is the rate of interest per annum
t is the tenure in years
Most Fixed Deposits use compounding interest (read about compound interest here)
Compound Interest formula:
M= P + P (1 + i / 100) t - 1,
P is the principal amount
i is the rate of interest per period
t is the tenure
What are FD interest rates?
A fixed deposit will provide a set return, specified in annual interest rates, on your deposit. FD interest rates are often higher than bank account savings rates as your money is deposited for a specified period of time, and can’t be withdrawn like a bank account.

What is a Fixed Deposit?
A fixed deposit (FD) is a term investment offered by banks and other institutions. These deposits normally offer a higher interest than a savings account, subject to specific terms and conditions. The sum you deposit in a FD is locked in for a predetermined period, which can range anywhere between 7 days and 10 years.
The rate of return for FDs is fixed at the time of opening the deposit and is independent of any market fluctuations, thus making it a safer investment that is less volatile than mutual funds.
