Top 5 Private Sector Banks Promising Good Returns On Recurring Deposits

|

A recurring deposit (RD) is a particular type of term deposit for salaried persons who desire to make regular contributions, similar to a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) in mutual funds. A predetermined chunk of the money can be contributed towards your RD account every month in order to gain interest rates based on your selected maturity period or tenure and deposit amount. The applicable interest rates on recurring deposits are compounded quarterly as a result your RD investment can boost your yield and the maturity amount can be withdrawn at the end of your specified term. We've compiled a list of the top 5 private sector banks that are presently offering higher returns on recurring deposits, considering which you can earn good interest rates to cover your future financial goals against your regular contributions.
