The interest on an HDFC Bank FD can be earned every month, every quarter, every six months or once a year.

How Does an HDFC Bank FD Calculator Work?

An HDFC FD rates calculator work by using a formula to calculate the maturity amount for a fixed deposit. The applicant needs to provide the details of fixed deposit, such as the FD amount, tenure, interest rate applicable and the interest calculation frequency for the calculator to determine its maturity amount. Take a look at the formula used by an HDFC FD calculator:

A= P(1+r/n)^n*t

In the above formula,

‘A’ stands for the fixed deposit maturity amount

‘P’ stands for the amount you invest in the FD

‘r’ stands for the HDFC Bank FD rates

‘n’ stands for the number of times interest on an FD is calculated. ‘N’ can equal to ‘1’ if the interest is calculated annually, ‘2’ if calculated half-yearly, ‘4’ if calculated quarterly and ‘12’ if calculated every month

‘t’ stands for the tenure of the fixed deposit

Let’s understand the formula with the help of an example:

Suppose a person wants to apply for an FD of Rs 1.2 lakh in HDFC Bank for a period of 8 years and the applicable interest rate is of 6.5% which is calculated every quarter. In this case, an HDFC fixed deposit calculator will apply the given information on the above-mentioned formula in the following way:

P = 1,20,000

r = 6.5%

n = 4

t = 8 years

Thus, A = 1,20,000 (1+6.5/4)^4*8 which comes out to Rs 2,01,001.

Therefore, the depositor will get a maturity amount of Rs 2,01,001 after 8 years.

Simple Interest vs. Compound Interest

The HDFC Bank calculates the interest on a fixed deposit using two methods, i.e. simple interest and compound interest method. Here are some of the major difference between simple interest and compound interest method of calculating FD interest:

Categories

Simple Interest on HDFC Bank FD

Compound Interest on HDFC Bank FD

Meaning

Simple interest method calculates the interest on an HDFC Bank FD amount on a fixed rate of interest for a specified tenure.

Compound interest method calculates the interest and adds it to the fixed deposit principal  amount. The interest is compounded and paid only at FD maturity.

Investment/ Principal Amount

Under the simple interest method, the interest is calculated on the investment amount or the principal amount with which the FD account was opened.

Under the compound interest method, the interest is calculated on the principal amount and not on the original investment amount. The interest earned in the first interval (month/ year) is added to the original principal amount and their total becomes the principal amount for the next interval. The procedure continues until the FD matures.

Change in Principal Amount

The principal amount under this method remains unchanged until the FD matures.

The principal amount changes at every interval (month/ quarter) as the interest is added to the principal amount and the sum of the two becomes the new principal amount.

Returns Earned

Lower returns are earned under simple interest method as the principal amount does not change throughout the FD tenure.

Higher returns can be earned under the compound interest method as the principal amount increases at every interval or period.

Formula

The formula of simple interest is P*R*T/ 100. Under this formula, ‘P’ stands for the principal amount invested in an FD, ‘R’ stands for the HDFC Bank FD rates applicable and ‘T’ stands for the maturity period.

The formula of compound interest is P (1+R/100) - P. In this formula, ‘P’ refers to the principal amount of the FD and ‘R’ refers to applicable HDFC Bank interest rate.
