      HDFC RD is also very good. There is an option here, where one can transfer the funds on a monthly basis. Interest rate is one and the same as FD. I had given auto debit options where the funds would be transferred from my account to this RD. I dont get any tax benefit here and its a short term RD.

We earn an interest of rs 500 it was for a short duration of time which is 15 months and I earn an interest of 15% approximately for RD.
