  • Recurring Deposit for Senior Citizens

    Several Banks offer Recurring Deposit for Senior Citizens for a tenure ranging from a minimum period of 6 months up to a maximum period of 10 Years. The tenure can be chosen by the depositor, in multiples of 3 months. Senior Citizens can avail special benefits on recurring deposit schemes, such as an additional interest rate of 0.25% to 0.75% over and above the regular interest rate offered by most banks. Once the amount of installment and tenure is fixed, it cannot be changed once the account is opened. Interest on the recurring deposit scheme is compounded on a quarterly basis.

    The interest rate applicable on the recurring deposit is similar to that applicable on the Fixed Deposits, for a similar tenure. Financial institutions like Bank of India offers 0.5% additional interest rate on recurring deposit, compared to the fixed deposit available for the same tenure. Usually, the minimum recurring deposit amount can be a minimum of Rs 100 per month. However, this varies from bank to bank.

    Defaulting on deposits can lead to penalty charges on your recurring deposit account and if there is defaulted payment of multiple installments, the bank at its discretion, can close the recurring deposit account and reimburse the investment to the depositor.

    Several banks also offers loans against recurring deposit or offer an overdraft facility against the amount that is available in an individual’s Recurring Deposit account. In this case, the rate of interest applicable will be 0.5% - 1% more than the interest applicable on recurring deposit. Another factor is that, senior citizen recurring deposit accounts are also subject to a penalty fee if they make a premature withdrawal from the account.

    News About Recurring Deposit for Senior Citizens

    • Senior Citizens Can Avail Interest of 8% for 10 Year Tenure

      Interest rates can decline any time and to protect the senior citizens from such a situation, Narendra Modi stated that they will be able to enjoy an interest rate of 8% fixed on their deposits of more than Rs.7.5 lakh with a tenure of 10 years.

      Monthly interest can be availed by the senior citizens under this particular scheme. As per Arun Jaitley, this is a very good news for all the senior citizens of India. At present, the banks offer 0.50% extra interest to the senior citizen customers. The largest lender in India, State Bank of India, gives 7% interest to all the customers who are senior citizens. This rate is available for tenures that range between 5 years and 10 years. Post demonetisation, the banks are reducing their rates of interest with fixed deposits which will affect everyone including the senior citizens. At post offices under the SCSS (Senior Citizen Savings Scheme), interest rate of 8.5% can be availed for deposits of Rs.15 lakh with a maturity tenure of 5 years.

      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%.
