Usually, a choice of premature withdrawal is provided to the customer, i.e. breaking the RD before it is fully mature. However, the initial interest might get hindered depending on how early the RD is broken from the actual maturity date. Your interest rate might get reduced.
Indian Bank provides the option of premature withdrawal. But, in that case, the interest accumulated on the principal amount will differ (depending on the bank rules.) Partial withdrawal of money is not allowed.
