A Fixed Deposit is an investment option that is risk-free, simple, and calls for only a one-time initial deposit. This facility allows you to deposit a certain sum of your choice with the bank for a specific period, which is also known as tenure.
During this time period, interest will be accrued on the deposit and when the tenure ends, the deposited money will be returned to you, along with interest. An FD can be opened with as small an amount as Rs 1,000 by anybody who has a bank account, and the minimum period for which the money needs to stay in the bank is 7 days.
Fixed Deposit is a widely accepted form of saving money for many people and is easily one of the most popular methods of investment.
