What is Fixed Deposit (FD)?
An FD is a savings account with a bank where a customer can deposit a lump sum of money for a fixed tenure at a fixed interest rate. Unlike a normal savings bank account, the interest earned is fairly higher. Unlike a mutual fund, the deposit amount and the stated interest rate are both guaranteed.
The FD may have a lock-in period during which the funds cannot be withdrawn without paying a penalty. Fixed deposits are generally considered a low-risk, low-return investment option and are popular among investors in India. Different banks offer different interest rates for fixed deposits, including different rates for senior citizens. It is important that you research fixed deposits adequately before committing any large sum of money to a fixed deposit.
What is a FD Calculator?
A FD calculator is a free, online tool that can help you automatically calculate the future value of your fixed deposit investment based on the amount invested, the duration of investment, and the rate of returns offered by the bank. It is a better alternative to manually calculating the maturity amount of an FD. Since it is publicly available online, anyone with a device with internet access can use it to accurately calculate returns on their FD investments.
Since calculating the FD returns is so easy with an FD calculator, you can use the calculator to compare the maturity amounts and impact of various interest rates of FDs from various financial institutions.
How does FD Calculator Work?
The Angel One online FD calculator gives you accurate figures on your FD returns based on what you enter under total investment, duration and rate of interest. It does so automatically and almost instantaneously, based on the FD calculator formula that is programmed into the online calculator. You can access it anytime for free. All you have to do is enter the required details regarding the invested amount, rate of interest and duration and the FD calculator will show you the final amount that you will receive at the end of the duration.
How can a FD calculator help you?
The following are some of the ways in which an FD calculator can help you:
- Estimate returns in advance - The online FD calculator will show you the final maturity amount that you will receive from investing in an FD with a certain amount, interest rate and for a certain time period.
- Comparing various investment options - Easy and fast calculations allow you to compare an FD against several alternative FDs offered by other banks, as well as different returns from different durations for the same fixed deposit.
Formula to Calculate FD Maturity Amount
The calculation of the final maturity amount of an FD is done using the following formula:
Maturity amount = p(1 + r/n)^nt
p = Principal Amount
r = Rate of interest
t = Tenure of investment
By inputting these values, our calculator is able to determine the returns for the investments for that specific period of time using this formula.
r = rate of interest = 6.5% = 6.5/100 = 0.065
n = frequency of compounding = 4 (compounded quarterly)
t = tenure = 5 years
p = principal amount
Maturity Amount = P (1 + r/n)nt
= 100,000 (1 + 0.065/4)^(5x4)
= 100,000 (1.01625)^20
= 100,000 (1.38041977)
Interest Amount = Maturity Amount - P
= 1,38,042 - 100,000
Assume that Mr A is planning to invest in an FD with ₹3,00,000 for 7 years
at a 6.5% interest rate. Before investing, he can check out how much he
will receive at the end of the duration of the investment. If he enters
invested amount as ₹3,00,000, the rate of interest as 6.5% and the
duration as 7 years, then the final amount that he will receive will be
shown by the calculator as ₹4,71,126. Out of this ₹3,00,000 will be the
invested amount and ₹1,71,126 will be the interest that he has earned from
the FD investment.
However, it might be the case that Mr A is unsure whether he wants to stay invested for 7 years or 10 years. To resolve this dilemma, he can quickly calculate the final amount from the same FD but for 10 years to be ₹5,71,668 i.e. an interest amount of ₹2,71,668. Now Mr A can simply decide which FD is suitable for him.

FD Calculator Approaches
There can be two different approaches to calculating investments. You can either take the investment approach where you enter the details of the amount invested to find out what amount you will receive in the end. Or, you can enter the details of the target amount that you want to achieve in order to find out what amount you need to invest and over what timeline.
The investment amount approach refers to method where the user enters the invested amount, rate of interest and duration in order to find out the final amount or the future value of investment that they will receive at the end of the investment tenure. This is the standard approach that is available for the Angel One FD Calculator.
This is in contrast to the Target Amount approach where the user enters their target future value that they want to have at the end of the duration, along with the duration and rate of interest. In return, the FD calculator gives them the initial amount that they need to invest in order to achieve that final amount at the given interest rate and within the given duration.
NRI FD Calculator
As an NRI or Non-resident Indian, you too can invest in fixed deposits in India. Therefore, you can use the FD calculator for calculating your future returns from an FD investment. Follow the same steps i.e. enter the investment amount, the duration and the rate of interest. You will be shown the final value of your investment automatically.
FD Calculation for Resident Customers & NRI
NRIs have to follow certain regulations for their FD investments. Therefore, while using the FD calculator, you must use the correct details that apply to you, if you are an NRI.
As an NRI, you can use the FD calculator only for Non-Resident External (NRE) and Non-Resident Ordinary (NRO) Term Deposits with a premature FD withdrawal facility. You cannot use the FD calculator for calculating the maturity value for Foreign Currency Not Repatriable (FCNR) Account Deposits.
For the calculation of NRI FD rates, use the following information -
You must also follow these restrictions while calculating your FD returns if you are an NRI -
- Senior citizen rates do not apply to NRE and NRO Deposits
- The minimum FD amount should be ₹25,000
