The Recurring deposit account is an account in the bank where an investor deposits a fixed amount of money every month for a fixed tenure (mostly ranging from one year to five years). This scheme is meant for investors who want to deposit a fixed amount every month, in order to get a lump sum after some years. The small monthly savings in the Recurring Deposit scheme enable the depositor to accumulate a handsome amount on maturity. Interest at term deposit rates is computable on quarterly compounded basis. The account can be opened by individuals, firms, corporate bodies, clubs, associations etc.
