## Factors Affecting IDBI Bank Recurring Deposit Rates

RBI’s Policies: Certain factors like the change in Cash Reverse Ratio (CRR) and repo rate as set by the RBI may affect the interest rates of all banking services including recurring deposits.

Recession: RBI releases funds in the market in times of recession, hence surfacing liquidity in the market. Owing to the high liquidity and low credit demand in the market, banks reduce their rates on RD.

Inflation: Inflation, on the other hand, has a positive effect on RD rates, and the market witnesses a rise in interest rates at the time of inflation.

State of the economy in India: With the economy going leaps and bounds, people tend to take larger credits to fulfill their personal and business requirements. Whenever there is high credit demand, banks offer higher interest rates to collect more funds through recurring deposits.
