Recurring deposit (RD) is a kind of term deposit under which one needs to deposit a fixed amount at fixed interval, which generates interest income. Recurring deposit interest rates, once determined, do not change during the tenure. In fact, the Reserve Bank of India ensures that strict guidelines are followed by banks. On maturity, the depositor is paid a lump-sum amount which includes periodic investments and the interest income earned on it. Institutions such as small finance banks and post offices also offer the facility of recurring deposit.
