Factors that affect the Bajaj Finance FD rates for senior citizens

Some factors responsible for changing FD rates are:

  • Money invested: For senior citizens, the interest rate of 6.75%, including the additional rate of 0.25%, is on a minimum investment of INR 25,000. If an investor invests a higher sum, then the rate of interest that they will receive will be higher. Therefore, the loan amount and the interest rate are directly proportional.
  • Investment duration: This is again directly proportional. It means a higher rate of interest is offered for a more extended invested period.
  • Method of payout: As discussed above, there are two payout methods, cumulative and non-cumulative. In the cumulative method, the interest amount earned gets compounded yearly. This ensures higher returns. However, if an investor opts for the non-cumulative approach, then their return might go down as well as the rate of interest.
  • Age of the investor: As discussed already, senior citizens get higher assured returns on the same amount of money invested compared to non-citizen customers. Therefore, the age of the investor also directly affects the FD rates.
