It provides the right balance of flexibility and commitment to invest  so that you can assess its benefits. The tenure basically ranges between 3 years to 7 years. 

    Long-Term RD

    The long term RD is best suited when you want to earn the return on your investment but do not have the lump sum amount to invest in fixed deposit. By investing recurring deposits you get the flexibility of making monthly investments, and earn the return similar to FD. The tenure basically ranges between 7 years to 10 years.

    SBI RD Account

    SBI offers recurring deposit option to their customers to park their periodically generated surplus savings for a fixed tenure.

    SBI Recurring Deposit Rates

    There are some factors that affect SBI Recurring Deposit interest rates. These are as follows:

    • Policies Framed by RBI : The change in Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) and repo rate as directed by the RBI affect the interest rate of all banking instruments including the recurring deposit.
    • Recession – In times of recession, RBI releases funds in the market and hence injecting liquidity in the market. As a result of high liquidity and low credit demand, banks reduce the rates on RD.
    • Inflation – Inflation has a positive effect on a fixed deposit interest rate. Hence, RD rates tend to be higher in a period of rising inflation.
    • Current State of Economy – In a booming economy, people take larger credit to meet their personal and business requirements. In periods of high credit demand, banks offer higher interest rate to garner more funds through recurring deposits.

    SBI RD Interest Calculator

    • Period of deposit- Bank offers low interest rate for short tenure RDs and higher interest rate for long tenure RDs.
