How to Start Investing in Post Office Recurring Deposit (RD) 

Post Office Recurring Deposit (RD) Account is a government-backed scheme, which allows you to deposit modest amounts of money & earn a higher interest rate. You can start with investing as little as Rs 100. There is no maximum investment limit in this; you are absolutely free to invest as much as desire. 

This scheme’s account will be open for 5 years. Banks will provide Recurring Deposit (RD) Accounts for 6 months, a year, 2 years & 3 years. Every quarter, interest is calculated on the money deposited in it & it is directly credited to your account at the conclusion of the quarter.

How Much Interest Will You Get?

  • Currently, a 5.8% interest rate is available in RD Schemes; this new rate took effect on April 1, 2020. Every quarter, the Indian Government set interest rates for all its small savings programs.

  • If you invest R 10,000 every month in the Post Office RD Scheme for 10 years, you will have accumulated more than Rs 16 lakhs at a rate of 5.8%.
