    The interest payable on such account will be lower of the base rate for the original / contracted term for which the RD account has been opened. The base rate is the rate applicable to an RD account of less than 1 crore as on the date of opening the account. If the account is closed within a month, no interest is payable apart from the principal amount.

    Factors to Consider Before Opening an RD Account:

    • Instalments: The instalment amount is chosen by the account holder at the time of opening the RD account which cannot be changed later. HDFC Bank doesn’t accept partial payment of instalment. The bank can close an RD account if more than 6 instalments are overdue. The interest rate on these types of accounts is subject to the premature liquidation policy of the bank.
    • Lock-in Period: The RD account comes with a lock-in period of one month. If the account holder opts for a premature liquidation, he/she will only get the principal amount without any interest.
    • Maturity: At maturity of the account term, the total earned interest along with the principal amount is credited to the account holder’s funding account provided all the due instalments are cleared. The maturity amount may change due to various factors such as due instalments, premature liquidation, new tax rules, etc.
    • Tax Deducted at Source (TDS): The interest earned through an RD account is subject to TDS as per the Income Tax rules.

    • Bulk Deposit Rate Cut By HDFC Bank: Down By 125 BPS to 5%

      Interest rates on deposits with maturity dates over a year away and with a value of over Rs.5 crore have been slashed by HDFC Bank by 125 bps (basis points). This will take effect on Friday, and the new interest rate will stand at 5% for such deposits.

      Following suit with a number of banks that have reduced deposit rates post demonetization, HDFC has narrowed the differential between its bulk deposit rate with that of the State Bank if India, to 75 bps (previously 200 bps).

      Most banks have slashed their effective interest rates on deposits owing to the massive influx of funds following the de-recognition of Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 value currency notes. The total value of deposits (released by RBI) between the 10th of November and the 10th of December, 2016 was reported to be Rs.12.44 lakh crore.

    • HDFC Bank Reduces Interest Rate for Deposits

      In news which is likely to impact the savings of thousands of customers, HDFC Bank reduced its interest rate on fixed deposits. The new interest offered by the bank stands at 7% for a one-year term, a cut of 25 basis points. Rates for other tenures have also been reduced, with HDFC now offering 7% interest on two and three-year terms as well. This move could have a huge impact on its customers, for other private banks offer much higher rates, with ICICI and Axis Bank offering 7.25% compared to 7%. A major reason why HDFC chose to reduce rates was to ensure that their margins did not suffer following the RBI rate cut.

      The rate cut issued by RBI has reduced the cost of loans, which means that banks will have to resort to other means to maintain parity. The current rate cut has meant that the actual interest is just 0.59% after tax deduction, which could lead to customers opting for other investments.

      I have most of my banking products with HDFC bank. As I'm an employee as well as I liked HDFC bank's services I decided to start a reccurring deposit for my future savings with HDFC bank itself. If we book recurring deposit through online then we will get offers some like free deal, provogue bags or watches, vouchers. Annually I pay Rs. 3000 and I get an interest of 7.75%.
