Fixed deposits (FD) are one of the most popular savings instruments in India that let you deposit money into a bank or NBFC for a specified period of time which grows at a fixed rate of return.

How Can an FD Calculator Help You?

The fixed deposit calculator is a tool that can help you not only calculate the values surrounding your FD savings but also a tool that harbours many essential benefits to make your decision-making process seamless. Following are the benefits of the FD return calculator to help you understand how it is useful for you.


Interest Rates & Charges

Fixed deposits are one of the most secure forms of investing and saving. Here, you will receive a decided FD interest rate payable by a bank or Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC)  at preferred time intervals. Fixed deposits, hence, are a very easy way to utilise spare funds in a productive and profitable manner since the returns earned through FDs are safe and guaranteed until the date of maturity. 

However, before you book your FD, it is essential for you to understand the crux of FD rates, the factors that affect interest on FD, CRISIL and ICRA ratings and taxation on FD interest rates.

Taxation on Fixed Deposit Interest

Fixed deposits in India are entirely taxable since, according to the Income Tax Act of 1961, the returns earned through FD interest rates are considered as alternate income-earning sources. It is added to your gross yearly income and hence, taxes are calculated.  

When the annual interest is credited to your FD account, the bank or NBFC will deduct the TDS liable from the interest amount that was earned. Once you reach the point of earning ₹40,000 in returns, you are liable to pay 10% - 20% in taxes. Senior citizens have special provisions that stretch the limit amount to ₹50,000 after which 10% - 20% will be levied on the annual returns.
