Conclusion

Conclusion

RD is a risk-free investment option because the principal amount invested, as well as generated interest at the applicable rate, is assured. Though the returns are fixed they can be used for both short-term and long-term goals. RD interest is determined at a fixed rate for the duration of the deposit. Thus, if your bank provides an interest rate of 8.50 per cent on your RD, interest will be calculated at that rate regardless of market fluctuations. The interest income from a Recurring Deposit is taxable, and the bank would deduct TDS at a rate of 10% if the income exceeds Rs. 10,000. And it is important to note here is that just like fixed deposits and savings accounts, recurring deposits are also insured by DICGC up to Rs 5 lakhs. As a result, because it is a monthly investment option rather than a lump sum, it is ideal for investors such as salaried individuals who want to build a corpus by their monthly contributions.
