DHFL Fixed Deposit Calculator

DHFL fixed deposit calculator helps you to calculate maturity value of your deposited amount at the interest rate offered compounded at quarterly. The amount of fixed deposits, interest rates on FD, deposit tenure and compounding frequency of interest together determine the maturity amount of the FD at the end of the tenure.

  • Deposit amount – This is the initial amount deposited by a customer in DHFL. Bank may allow higher interest rate on larger deposits. DHFL offers deposit amount in the range of 1,000 to No Limit.
  • Rate of Interest - Interest rate is the rate charged by the bank on your fixed deposit. DHFL offers a higher rate of interest on fixed deposits of longer tenure and lower interest rate on deposits of less than a year. Highest interest rate offered by DHFL is 9.25% for deposit amount below Rs. 1 crore corresponding to a deposit tenure of 36 months to 120 months.
  • Period of deposit - Bank offers low interest rate for short tenure FDs and higher interest rate for long tenure FDs. Bank offers a rate of 8.50% for a 36 months FD and a rate of 9.25% for a 120 months FD.
  • Interest Compounding Frequency - This determines the frequency at which interest is compounded. Compounding frequency can be monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annual frequency.
  • TDS applicability and TDS rate
    • Illustration: Mr. A opens a FD account of ₹ 1,00,000 with a tenure of 360 days at an interest rate of 8.50%. In this case, the maturity amount at the end of 360 days will be ₹ 1,00,671 which includes the principal of ₹ 1,00,000 and interest of ₹ 671 is earned on the principal amount during the period. Similarly, you can calculate the interest and maturity amount for higher tenures by using FD calculators.
