Business Wire India
An investment that earns guaranteed returns is always beneficial, more so when market-linked instruments aren’t yielding returns as per your expectations. A fixed deposit is one such safe investment as it helps you grow your money and protect your portfolio against volatility.
Currently, Bajaj Finance Ltd., the lending and investment arm of Bajaj Finserv, is offering Fixed Deposit at up to 8.70% interest, making it one of the top FDs available in India. Moreover, its credibility is ratified by some of the best rating agencies.
Here’s how you can earn securely through the Bajaj Finance Fixed Deposit:
Earn 8.35% interest as a new customer

Bajaj Finance offers regular customers a maximum interest rate of 8.35%. As is the case with most deposits, the interest rate peaks when the investment term crosses the 3-year mark and when you opt for interest payouts at maturity only. What’s more, the minimum deposit amount is just Rs.25,000 making it easy for you to get started right away.
To understand more about the returns you can get through this FD, take a look at how an investment of Rs.1 lakh grows over different tenors.
Deposit amount (in Rs.) Tenor (in yrs.) Interest rate (in %) Interest earned (in Rs.) Maturity proceeds (in Rs.) ROI (in %)
1,00,000 1 8 8,000 1,08,000 8.00
1,00,000 3 8.35 27,200 1,27,200 27.20
1,00,000 5 8.35 49,329 1,49,329 49.32
Get 0.35% extra interest with a senior citizen’s FD

The steady growth of wealth is paramount to your wellbeing and financial independence, especially if you’re a senior citizen. Bajaj Finance understands this and aids wealth creation by offering a higher rate of interest on a senior citizen’s fixed deposits. Here, the principal invested grows at a rate of up to 8.70%.

As is the case with regular FDs, this interest rate is applicable when you opt for interest payouts at maturity only and invest for at least 3 years.
To understand how the 0.35% interest rate increase benefits you, take a look at the following table where Rs.1 lakh is invested for varying tenors.
Deposit amount (in Rs.) Tenor (in yrs.) Interest rate (in %) Interest earned (in Rs.) Maturity proceeds (in Rs.) ROI (in %)
1,00,000 1 8.35 8,350 1,08,350 8.35
1,00,000 3 8.70 28,437 1,28,437 28.43
1,00,000 5 8.70 51,757 1,51,757 51.75
Secure additional 0.10% interest when you renew your FD

As you may notice, your returns are higher when you pick a long investment tenor. This is because of the power of compounding. At the end of each compounding period, the interest earned is reinvested with the principal and so, you earn more as time goes on. When your tenor is long, the number of compounding periods increase, thus offering better returns.
Moreover, to help you make the most of compounding, Bajaj Finance offers a convenient auto-renewal facility that you can opt for at the time of booking your FD. This allows you to reinvest in a hassle-free manner and secure an additional 0.10% FD interest rate so you can grow your money faster. Here’s how.
Customer type Deposit amount (in Rs.) Tenor (in yrs.) Interest rate (in %) Interest earned (in Rs.) Maturity proceeds (in Rs.) ROI (in %)
Regular 1,49,329 5 8.35 + 0.10 = 8.45 74,694 2,24,023 50.01
Senior 1,51,757 5 8.70 + 0.10 = 8.80 79,606 2,31,363 52.45
Enjoy liquidity at periodic intervals to cater to regular spends

While opting for payouts at maturity ensures that your gains are as high as can be, choosing regular payouts allows you tend to recurring expenses. Therefore, to help you achieve timely liquidity, Bajaj Finance allows you to pick the payout frequency for your FD. It's important to note that the more frequent your payouts are, the lower is the interest rate that you get.
Here’s what you earn when you invest Rs.5 lakh for 3 years in a senior citizen’s FD, and opt for monthly, quarterly, bi-annual and annual payouts.
Deposit (in Rs.) Frequency Interest rate (in %) Interest earned (in Rs.)
5,00,000 Monthly 8.37% 3,487
5,00,000 Quarterly 8.43% 10,538
5,00,000 Bi-annually 8.52% 21,300
5,00,000 Annually 8.70% 43,500
Invest for the long term without worrying about stability

When you invest with Bajaj Finance you can look forward to timely interest and principal payouts. This is based on the ratings that this FD has been awarded, post an assessment by credible rating agencies. The Bajaj Finance FD has to its name ICRA’s MAAA and CRISIL’s FAAA rating. These attest to the FD’s safety, a quality that certainly has a bearing on your investment decisions.
