  1. Nice Article Thanks! I wished to understand How is FD interest calculated that is paid to Investor? Does compounding take place?
    Any formula or an onlineCalculator would be helpful.

    1. Hello Jayesh, It depends on the bank. Some are offering annual compounding and some are offering quarterly / half yearly compounding interest. Based on this final interest rates would change.

        1. Hello Jayesh, Debenture interest calculated on Simple Interest basis if u opt for other cummulative option. However, if have choosen cummulative option then u will get compounding benefit but under this option u will get principal along with interest on maturity.
