• SBI Reinvestment FD Plan

    While a regular fixed deposit offers the depositor the option to withdraw the interest earned at regular intervals, the SBI Reinvestment Plan, as the name suggest, does not pay the interest out. What it does instead is to take that interest and add it to the principal and then the whole amount earns compound interest. Once the fixed deposit matures the depositor is able to withdraw the original amount invested, along with all the interest that has been earned till date.
