HDFC Bank Vs ICICI Bank RD Rates Comparison After The Recent Hike, Check New Rates Here
A recurring deposit (RD) is a type of fixed deposit or term deposit (FD). The only difference is that with an RD, an individual can continue to deposit money every month, whereas, with an FD, he or she must deposit a lump sum. So, in essence, it is a systematic investment plan (SIP) with a guaranteed fixed return. Putting it in simple words, a recurring deposit (RD) is a type of investment that allows you to save money on a regular basis while earning interest. The main benefit of an RD is that you can save by making small regular contributions and earning interest on your savings.
