How is RBL Fixed Deposit Interest Calculated?

You can calculate the RBL fixed deposit interest using 2 methods. Firstly, simple interest and secondly compound interest. Again, the maturity and interest amount are driven by factors such as investment amount, rate of interest, compounding frequency, and interest payout.  

Simple Interest on FD 

Simple interest is the interest earned on the investment amount for a given period of time at a predetermined interest rate. RBL bank offers fixed deposits at simple interest if the tenure is less than 181 days. 

Simple Interest Formula- (P * R * T)/ 100

Where,

P = Principal amount of investment

R = Rate of FD Interest (%)

T = Tenure of investment 

Let us understand the calculation with the help of an example

Mr. Anil invests Rs 200,000 in a fixed deposit on 1st May 2021 for 5 months at a rate of interest of 6% per annum. 

Here, 

P (the investment amount) = Rs 100,000

R (rate of interest) = 6% per annum

T (tenure) = 5 months

Simple interest = (P * R * T)/ 100

                         = (Rs 200,000 * 6 * 5 months) / 100 * 12 months

                         = Rs 5,000

Maturity amount on FD = Principal Investment Amount + Interest Earned

                                      = Rs 2,00,000 + Rs 5,000

                                      = Rs 2,05,000

Compound Interest on FD

Compound interest is the interest earned on the principal amount invested as well as the interest earned. The interest rate is raised to the number of periods (years) for which the interest will be compounded and multiplied to the principal amount invested. 

The RBL bank provides fixed deposits with compounding interest for a tenure of more than 181 days. You can also select the compounding frequencies like monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, and yearly. The higher the frequency of compounding higher will be the interest amount. Needless to say it is always better to select a payout on maturity to ensure a higher return on investment.

However, if you need a regular income in hand then you can surely select a periodic payout of interest. It is clearly evident that an FD with compound interest is a better investment option than an FD carrying simple interest. 

Compound Interest Formula

A = P (1+r/n) ^ (n * t)

A = Maturity Amount

P = Principal amount invested

r = Rate of Interest (in decimals)

n = number of compounding in a year

t = number of years

Example

Mr. Anil invests Rs 50,000 for a period of 2 years at  a rate of interest 6% per annum compounded half-yearly. 

Here,

Principal amount = Rs 50,000

Interest Rate = 6% per annum compounded half-yearly

Number of compounding in a year = 2 (once every 6 months)

Number of years of investment is 2 years

A = 50,000 (1+0.06/2) ^ (2*2)

A = Rs 56,275

Interest amount = Rs 56,275 – Rs 50,000 = Rs 6,275
