Indian Bank FD Calculator

Indian Bank FD Calculator is a digital tool to assist investors in chalking out a financial strategy in harmony with their financial objectives. Indian Bank offers a host of options in their Fixed Deposit range, usually referred to as Term Deposit.

As the name suggests, the Term Deposit remains invested for a specified period to earn attractive interest rates depending on the chosen tenure. The Indian Bank Fixed Deposit Calculator provides the necessary impetus to design a product to the customer’s satisfaction. Moreover, it is available as a digital platform to be accessed anywhere and anytime at one’s convenience.

How Does an Indian Bank FD Calculator Work?

The Indian Bank Fixed Deposit Calculator is a versatile online tool designed to project future financials derived from a few essential information. However, it is easier said than done due to the FD variants offered by the bank. There are options to invest for cumulative benefits and receive the earned interest component every month or quarterly every 3 months. Investments are made in Tax Saver FD or in Recurring Deposit, which accumulates investment in monthly installments. It must be understood that the applied interest depends on the FD design stated above, providing either simple or compound interest based on tenure.

Accordingly, the outcome is readily obtained by inputting the amount, customer type – whether regular or senior citizen, type of the FD scheme, tenure, and the registration date. The Indian Bank FD Calculator picks up the relevant applicable interest rate based on the input and displays the outcome instantly.

Simple Interest vs. Compound Interest:

Indian Bank offers Fixed Deposit products in different flavours to cater to individual customer preferences. FD is a broad term encompassing all Term Deposits providing fixed tenures ranging from 7 days to 10 years. There is Money Multiplier, Recurring, Fixed, with monthly or quarterly interest payout, Tax Saver, and Short Deposits for this range. The names suggest their fundamental nature but may have different regimes of simple and compound interest applications.

As a thumb rule, the Indian Bank FD Calculator computes simple interest for product tenures not exceeding 180 days while it is quarterly compounding for the others. It is important to remember that the interest rates are reviewed periodically and revised. However, the revised rates are applied to the new deposits and do not impact the existing FDs. However, what is simple and compound interest in the first place? Let us find out:

  • Simple Interest: It is a straightforward calculation of interest payable on the invested amount, called the principal. While the interest is applied, the principal remains constant, signifying that the interest amount is also constant. The following formula calculates the simple interest.

SI = PxNxR/100 (The variables used are SI = simple interest, P = principal, N = tenure, and R = interest rate)  

  • Compound Interest: It is more complex as the principal changes on every occasion when interest is applied. In simple words, the compounding principle translates into interest paid on the already accrued interest added to the previous principal. Thus, the incremental interest accrual is paid as the cumulative maturity value on the tenure’s expiry. The Indian Bank FD Calculator uses the following formula for calculation:

MA = P (1+ R/N) ^ N*T (The variables used are MA = maturity sum, P = principal, R = interest rate, N = interest application frequency in a year, and T = tenure)

After learning the intricacies of the interest application, let us now check the Indian Bank FD Calculator interest rates.
