## Factors Influencing RBL Bank RD Interest and Maturity Amount

The rate of interest on your RBL Bank recurring deposit will directly affect how much you will earn on maturity of your deposit. The following factors influence the interest rate:

• RBI Reverse Repo Rate: The Reserve Bank of India’s reverse repo rate is an important factor that influences the interest rate as it is the rate at which the apex bank borrows money from commercial banks such as RBL Bank. A low reverse rate means a low-interest rate on your RD and vice versa.
• Deposit Maturity Period: The maturity period of your RD will determine how much your maturity amount will be. This is because the interest rate varies from one tenure to another.
• Depositor’s Age: Anyone above the age of 60 is offered an additional interest rate of up to 0.50% on their deposits.

### Calculation of Compound Interest on RBL Bank Recurring Deposit

RBL Bank deposits accumulate interest on a compounding basis every quarter. This means that you open an RD account with RBL Bank on 1 May, the interest compounds every 1 August, 1 November, 1 February, and 1 May. This cycle repeats up to the end of the maturity period as chosen by you. The formula for calculating the compounding interest is given below:

M = R x {(1 + n) x n – 1} / 1- (1 + i) (-1/3)

Where:

M = Maturity value

R = Deposit amount

n = Maturity period (in quarters)

i = Rate of interest divided by (4×100).

The RBL Bank RD online calculator is based on this formula. So, using the calculator, you can calculate how much you will earn in the scenario given below:

If you open an RD with RBL Bank with an initial deposit of Rs.3,000 for a period of 12 months at an interest rate of 6.85% p.a., your maturity amount will be Rs.37,364.

The RBL Bank online calculator will give you an accurate and error-free calculation as compared to manual calculations. This will help you choose the best deposit amount and investment tenure for your requirements.
