How does Arunachal Pradesh Rural Bank Fixed Deposit Interest Rate Calculator Work?

Arunachal Pradesh Rural Bank Fixed Deposit Interest Rate Calculator calculates the interest earned on a fixed deposit with the help of outlined components:

(1) Deposit Amount

It is an amount that an FD account holder wants to invest in the fixed deposit. It is also called the principal. It is to be remembered that this amount can be deposited only once hence you have to decide the amount to be invested according to your investment objectives.

(2) Interest Rate

It is the rate of interest offered by the bank where you open the FD. It differs for different tenures. Once FD is opened for a specific tenure then the interest rate will remain the same for the whole tenure.

(3) Term of Deposit (FD Tenure)

It is the duration for which the amount is invested in an FD which may vary from 7 days to 10 years. In the calculator, you can select the tenure in days, months or year.

(4) Compounding of Interest

Interest can be compounded on a monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis. It can be a simple interest as well. You need to enter it based on the offer by the bank.

Automatic Renewal of Bank FD

Bank FD matures on a specific date. On maturity, if you have not given any specific instructions such as payout or renewal of FD, most of the banks automatically renew the FD for the same period for which it was initially made at the interest rate prevailing on the date of maturity of FD. This is called Automatic Renewal of Bank FD.

You should choose the option on the account opening form if you do not want the bank to auto-renew your FD. You have 2 options on the account opening form while depositing money in FD, first one is auto-renew and the second one is a deposit of an amount to your account after maturity. In case you have not mentioned any option on the account opening form then you will need to visit the bank branch on the maturity day of your bank FD and opt for credit of the final proceeds of your bank FD into your savings account if you do not want an auto-renewal of your FD.
