- April to June – Quarter 1
- July to September – Quarter 2
- October to December – Quarter 3
- January to March – Quarter 4

The formula to calculate compound interest on RD is:

**M=R[(1+i) (n-1)]/1-(1+i)(-1/3))**

- M is the Maturity value
- R is the Monthly Installment
- i is the rate of interest divided by 4
- n is the tenure (in quarters)

The rate of interest for the depositor is decided based on certain factors. Some of the are enlisted below:

**Tenure**

This the time period for which you invest the money in a recurring deposit. The rate primarily depends on various factors and tenure is one the most crucial ones. Your RD interest rate varies across all the tenure options.

**Applicant’s Age**

Banks and other financial institutions usually provide a higher rate of interest to senior citizens. The rates range from 0.50% to 0.75% additional rates over the regular deposit rates provided to general citizens. However, the minimum age criteria for senior citizens may vary as per the bank.

**Current Economic Environment**

Banks and other NBFCs that provide recurring deposits schemes keep on changing their interest rates with reference to the economic scenario. Reasons like change in repo rate by the RBI, inflation, and so on play an important role in this.

**Inflation**

Inflation and interest rates have a close relation. In fact, both are inversely proportional to each other; lower interest rates are most likely to result in more inflation, on the other hand, high-interest rates tend to lower inflation.

**Repo rate**

Repo rate is an important element of the Indian monetary policy that can regulate the country’s money supply, inflation levels, and liquidity. In low inflationary situations, the interest rate is reduced. A fall in interest rates makes borrowing cheaper.
