Interest rates on FDs in India: Important terms
Timely closure: This means that your FD account is closed when it reaches maturity. When you close your FD account at the end of the term you chose, the bank gives you back the amount you put in plus the interest earned.

Partial withdrawal: Partial withdrawals let you withdraw a portion of your FD amount. However, the bank usually imposes a penalty for this. The rest of your fixed deposit account will earn interest at the original rate.

Breaking an FD account: This contradicts timely FD account closure. Money is withdrawn after maturity in timely closure. Premature withdrawal, or breaking the FD, means withdrawing all the money before maturity.

What are the factors that determine the FD interest rates?
●Repo rate
●Deposit amount and tenure
●Frequency of interest payment
●Renewal
