Speaking on the Bank RD investment Sebi registered tax and investment experts said, "Bank RD is one of the most preferred investment options among the earning individuals who are in the early phase of their career. It gives an assured return with zero risk factors. So, in my opinion, each and every individual should do at least one RD for an assured return when he or she is in the early phase of its career and their time frame should not be less than 5 years." He advised investors to check the interest given by various banks before opening an RD account as it can be now opened online through net banking and it hardly take more than 5 minutes.
Therefore, on the basis of the above advise, let's check the RD interest rate offered by the SBI, Axis Bank and HDFC Bank. According to the Recurring Deposit details at SBI, the interest rate offered is 6.25 per cent to 6.4 per cent and the period of recurring deposit SBI will be from 1-10 years.
