What Is the HDFC FD Calculator?
The HDFC FD online calculator is a simple and convenient tool to calculate an FD's maturity amount for a given investment, rate of return, and duration.
Fixed deposits (FDs) are a popular, risk-free investment option that gives a rate of return usually higher than savings deposits. The rate of return is fixed. Hence you can calculate the final maturity amount that you will get for a particular investment by a given formula. In order to make the above calculation, you either have to do the fairly complex math manually, or you can simply use an online FD calculator.
How Does an HDFC Fixed Deposit Calculator Work?
An HDFC FD online calculator uses a compound interest formula and shows you the future value of the investment and the estimated return. All you have to do is enter the required details such as the principal, the interest rate and duration - the maturity and interest amounts will be in front of you.
What is the HDFC Bank FD Calculator Formula?
The following is the HDFC FD calculator formula for calculating the maturity amount for a fixed deposit:
Maturity Amount= p (1+r/n) ^ nt
p = Principal amount
t = Time Period
n = Frequency of compounding in each time period
r = Rate of Interest
How to Use the HDFC FD Calculator Online?
The online HDFC FD calculator of Angel One is a tool to help you calculate all the maturity amounts for various investment amounts, interest rates and durations for HDFC FDs.
For example, suppose you want to invest Rs. 5,00,000 for 5 years. There is an FD that gives 5.75% interest. In order to calculate the interest amount, you simply have to:
- Go to the HDFC FD calculator page on the Angel One website
- Enter Rs. 5,00,000 under “Total Investment”
- Enter the interest rate as 5.75%
- Enter the duration as 5 years
You will then automatically find the future value of the investment at the end of 5 years to be Rs. 6,66,824 and the estimated return to be Rs. 1,66,824.

- Five Year Tax Saving FD - This allows you to save taxes under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. It has a 5-year lock-in period.
- FCNR Deposits - These accounts will allow you to hold money in up to six different currencies and repatriate the principal and interest.
- Non-Withdrawable Deposits - No premature or partial withdrawals are allowed in case of such deposits. The minimum amount is Rs. 2 crores.
Factors Influencing HDFC FD Earnings
- Principal amount - The principal is the amount that you initially invested. Any earnings over and above the principal are the interest earned. The higher the initial investment, the higher the maturity amount will be.
- Rate of interest - The interest rate is the return that the investment gets at the end of every period, calculated as a percentage of the principal. Therefore, the interest rates are directly proportional to the principal.
- Tenure of investment - This is the period when the principal remains invested. The higher the tenure of the investment, the higher the interest earned.
- Frequency of compounding - This means how frequently the interest is calculated and added to the principal within a given period. Higher the frequency of compounding, the higher the interest earned because the effect of compounding is repeated a higher number of times.
- Taxation - A higher tax rate means you get less return for the same principal, interest, and investment tenure.
- Inflation - Even if you earn a high return on your FD, a high inflation rate may reduce the real value of your return, i.e., compared to your expenses.
