In recurring deposit or RD, you get a pre-assured sum, without any investment risk.

A recurring deposit or RD is an investment plan meant for long-term wealth creation in which investment is made in small instalments at fixed intervals systematically. Today, an investor can choose from a variety of terms – or maturity period – up to 10 years to set up a recurring deposit account with a bank. In a recurring deposit, a depositor usually makes small value remittances, say Rs.500 or Rs 1,000, at monthly intervals. Unlike any other market-linked instrument, a recurring deposit allows the depositor to earn a pre-assured sum (with applicable tax deduction) without any investment risk after completion of the maturity period.

Here’s a comparison of interest rates paid by State Bank of India (SBI), India Post and small finance banks in recurring deposit accounts:

ESAF Small Finance Bank Recurring Deposit Interest Rates 2018
ESAF Small Finance Bank provides three types of recurring deposits: regular, fixed and micro. In a Flexi Recurring Deposit, the customer can deposit over and above the contracted monthly instalment up to 10 times the same amount per month. This will help in earning additional income on the surplus deployable funds, according to a bank spokesperson. In a Micro RD, which is a group-based RD product, the deposit can happen at very small values, say Rs 50, at weekly or monthly intervals.
