The Bank of Baroda's Recurring deposit (RD) scheme is a basic saving plan, which helps customers to regulate their savings and reap its benefits from time to time.


A recurring deposit is an investment cum savings option for those who want to save regularly over a certain period of time and earn a higher interest rate. It is a type of term deposit which allows one to save a fixed amount of money every month systematically. If you are familiar with SIP in Mutual Funds, RD works similarly in banking. Every month, a fixed amount of money is deducted either from a savings or a current account. And, at the end of the maturity, investors are paid back their invested money with accrued interest.

A user willing to open a recurring deposit account with Bank of Baroda Bank can choose any amount and term according to your convenience.
