How is Fixed Deposit Interest Calculated?

The interest rate on fixed deposit is usually calculated using two methods – simple interest and compound interest.

Simple Interest:

This is a pre-fixed rate of interest at a fixed period of time. It is calculated by multiplying the rate of interest per annum, the principal amount, and the tenure in years.

To take an example, if you deposit Rs.1 lakh at an interest rate of 10% p.a. for 5 years, then your interest amount at the time of maturity with a simple interest calculation will be the following:

SI: P x R x T/100

SI: 1,00,000 x 10 x 5/100 = 50,000

Maturity amount at the end of the 5-year deposit tenure: Rs.1.5 lakh.

Compound Interest

This is the interest that is earned on both the principal amount and the interest amount. It is calculated by multiplying the interest rate with the principal amount raised to the number of periods, taken in years, for which the interest is compounded.

A = P (1+r/n) ^ (n * t)

A = Maturity amount

P = Principal amount

r = rate of interest in decimals

n = number of compounding in a year

t = number of years

For a deposit amount of Rs.10,000 that is kept for a tenure of 3 years at a quarterly compounding interest rate of 10%, the interest at the time of maturity would be:

A= 10,000 {1 + (0.1/4)} ^ (4 * 3)

A = 10,000 (1 + 0.025) ^ (12)

A = 10,000 (1.025) ^ (12) = Rs. 13,449 (approximately)

Compound Interest (CI) = Maturity Amount – Principal Amount

CI = 13,449 – 10,000 = Rs. 3,449

Maturity amount at the end of the 3-year deposit tenure: Rs.10,3449
