Fixed deposit (FD) and recurring deposit (RD) are the conventional financial schemes which probably most of traditional savers are aware of. These instruments are as old as the modern banking system in India. Hybrid plans like mutual funds, and other equity-based plans came much later. Therefore, many people still prefer FD and RD as a safe avenue for parking their money. Both the schemes offer fixed return and safety to the investors. However, money invested in both the schemes for the same tenure will not give the same returns. Interest rates offered by various banks can be different as well. On FD you get higher returns, but the amount has to be invested in one go. On RD, you get a bit lower maturity amount compared to FD, but you can invest the money in small installments every month till the maturity.
