    Details of KVB FD

    You can apply for a KVB FD with a minimum amount that is as little as Rs.100 with no maximum amount set. The period of deposit is also very variable and stretches from 15 days up to 10 years. The interest pay-out options are also varied and range from monthly and quarterly to half-yearly. You can also avail a loan on your deposit up to a certain percentage of the deposit amount. Nomination facility is also available. If in need of funds on an emergency basis, you can either take out a loan against the FD or close the account prematurely with a nominal penalty involved for premature closure.

    FD Calculator

    Using an FD calculator has many benefits. It can help you compare different FD tenures and interest rates within the same bank or even among different banks. It can help you decide how much to invest and for how long. It can help you choose the investment tenure that will yield the maximum returns for your FD.

    The FD calculator is an online tool that is free to use. It is also easy and quick to display the accurate maturity amount. All you have to do is enter the data required, which is the FD amount you wish to invest, the investment tenure you would like, and the current interest rate for that tenure.

    For example, if you want to invest Rs.1 lakh in a KVB FD and want to find out which tenure is best for the maximum returns, just enter the data required and choose among the different tenures that are available with KVB.

    Taking the example of two different tenures such as one year and above 5 years, you will be able to see that the one-year tenure, with an interest rate of 5.00% p.a., will fetch you a maximum amount on maturity of Rs.1.1 lakh, with an interest rate of Rs.1000, whereas for a tenure of 5 years with an interest rate of 5.75%, you will get a maturity amount of Rs.1.3 lakh with an interest rate of Rs.30,000.
