Fixed Deposit Interest Calculator

Deposits are of two types – periodic interest payout and cumulative.

Periodic Interest Payout - In this option, you would receive a fixed interest at the end of every period (say, a quarter). The interest amount would remain unchanged through the tenure of the FD. Entire principal would be repaid at the end of the period.

Cumulative deposit - You may remember having studied “compound interest” in middle school. Say, you place a deposit of ₹ 10,000/- with Bank A at 10% p.a. for 3 years. Now, how much money would you get at the end of 3 years?

  • Is it ₹ 10,000 in principal plus 10% interest or ₹ 1,000 multiplied by 3? That comes to ₹ 13,000. However, if you use the FD interest calculator here, the result will be ₹ 13,449. Why does bank pay you this extra ₹ 449? This is the compounded FD interest.
  • In simple terms, interest on bank FD’s is typically compounded quarterly. So, a 10% per annum rate of interest means 2.5% per quarter. At the end of first quarter, the bank credits ₹ 250 to your deposit account and in the next quarter, the interest payable is 2.5% on ₹ 10,250 and not on ₹ 10,000. This process repeats itself for 12 quarters and earns you a total compound interest of ₹ 3,449.
  • More the compounding frequency, higher the interest a customer earns on FD. So, instead of quarterly compounding, if the above FD was on monthly compounding basis, the interest amount would be ₹ 3,482 instead of ₹ 3,449 with quarterly compounding.
  • In the context of fixed deposits, FD interest compounding refers to earning interest on the interest itself! Slightly complicated but then you make more money this way!

FD Maturity Calculator

The interest earned on a FD depends on the deposit amount, interest applicable, deposit tenure and the type of interest calculation frequency. Interest on FD can be calculated monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and annually. The interest rate for senior citizens is higher than the normal rates.

Suppose if you make an investment of ₹ 1,00,000 in FD for a 5-year tenure at an interest rate of 7.00% for depositors below 60 years and 7.50% for senior citizens. The interest calculation on the deposited amount is done quarterly. The maturity amount for this deposit amount is ₹ 1,41,478 and the total interest earned is ₹ 41,478 for below 60 years of age citizens. However, the interest earned for senior citizens is ₹ 44,995 which is higher. The maturity schedule of FD for 5 years is explained below in the table –

Maturity Schedule for ₹ 1,00,000 FD at 7.00% for Citizens below 60 years and at 7.50% for Senior Citizens for 5 years

FD Calculation Formula

FD investors can calculate the returns and maturity amount on a fixed deposit by using the FD maturity calculator. The FD maturity calculator is an online tool that helps one determine the FD interest rate earned and the maturity amount, on the basis of a mathematical formula. The formula to calculate the FD returns is, A=P(1+r/n)^n*t. Here, A is the maturity amount, P is the principal amount invested in the FD, r is the rate of interest and n is the tenure. The FD interest rate calculator or FD maturity calculator is a reliable, and convenient tool that helps one to determine the returns offered on FD.

Income Tax on Fixed Deposit Interest

  • Interest income from FD’s is taxed at the tax rate applicable to the deposit account holder. It means that the interest income forms part of the total income of the account holder while and it is taxed as per the applicable tax slab the individual falls under.
  • One word of caution - interest on deposits is to be taxed on an accrual basis and not a receipt basis. Say, you place a cumulative deposit with a bank for 5 years and hence will receive interest only at the end of five years. Still, you must pay tax on the accrued interest for each of the years in that year itself.

TDS on FD interest
