Important to Check Overall Yields

Calculators help you to check overall interest rates yields. For example, with the calculator above, you can check the overall maturity value including the yield. So, all you need to do is enter the time period and the interest rates to easily get the maturity value of your FD. SBI interest rates on FDs have dropped dramatically, which has made it imperative to check the overall yields. Remember that if you are checking interest, the yields turn higher because of the law of compounding, hence it becomes necessary to check the yields. Most banks compound interest rates once every three months, or as they say quarterly compounding. State Bank of India has dropped interest rates on deposit rates and the yields have fallen, hence it is necessary to check the overall yields with the help of the calculator. Do not forget that these are with the tax liability on these deposits.

Feeding in Correct Data in FDs of SBI Calculator

If you wish to get the correct maturing FDs amount with the correct interest and principal amount on the calculator, you must put the correct data. Most of the calculators may fail to see the correct yield, unless there is a correct awareness on the time period for compounding. For example, in the case of the banks the compounding of the interest rates is done every quarter. In the case of non banking finance companies the yields after calculating the FD rates may not be high, as the compounding may happen on a half yearly basis or may happen annually. Every FD calculator, including the SBI FD calculator must take this into account before arriving at the final figure. The yields can vary and in some cases dramatically based on the data.

What is Compound Interest? How to calculate using an SBI FD Interest rate Calculator?

Compound Interest means the interest which we get after adding the interest on the initial deposit and also the accumulated interest of the specified period. Here the specified period means every bank gives some specified time like quarterly, half yearly or on an annual basis for the interest rate to get compounded.

For making things easy, it is better to check the FD interest rate using an SBI FD Interest Rate Calculator. On goodreturns.in you can calculate the interest rate of not only SBI but also of various banks such as HDFC, ICICI, almost of all the banks. If you visit the fixed deposit interest rates page, you will find the details of every bank such as maturity period, interest rates for general and senior citizens. If you want to check the exact interest rate for the amount you have deposited better to visit the SBI FD Interest Rate Calculator page and check.

How FD interest rates are changed by SBI?

State Bank of India like most other banks reviews its own credit requirement, asset liability match and general movement in interest rates, before deciding on hiking or reducing the same. One of the big reasons to also move interest rates, depends in what the Reserve Bank of India does with the repo rates. These are the rates at which the country's central bank lends money to other banks in the country.

When these are hiked, most banks like SBI too raise their interest rates. This is how the country's largest bank, manages to either raise or hold FD interest rates steady. Generally, the SBI is a trend setter as far as rates are concerned. For individual investors it is important to compare the interest rates before placing money in bank deposits.

This help in ensuring maximum returns. Also, one must use the SBI deposit calculator to know exactly, how much returns one would fetch on deposits.
