    1. Hi Murthy, FD is fixed deposit which you invest once say Rs 1 Lakh. However recurring deposit is one where you invest every month say Rs 5,000 per month for say 12 months or 2 years or 3 years. First one you do only once in case you have any surplus like bonus etc. Second one you do it as part of every month savings. Later would create wealth for you in long run.
