As you can see, investing in a lump sum for a longer tenure can fetch good returns at maturity. However, if investing a large corpus in one go is not for you, then you need not postpone your investment plans till you save up a large pool. You can make small monthly investments and earn significant returns over a longer tenure. Bajaj Finance offers the Systematic Deposit Plan (SDP) an industry-first offering where you can start investing with amounts as small as Rs. 5000. You can save monthly and make these deposits. This works just like a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) sans the mutual fund market risk. Each deposit you make goes into a separate smaller FD, which either can be realised at maturity under the Single Maturity Scheme (SMS) or even payouts can be received monthly under the Monthly Maturity Scheme (MMS). You can choose your plan based on your liquidity requirements and financial aspirations.

You can invest in this FD in under 10 minutes via an entirely paperless and 100% online process. Investing in this FD now is an ideal move as you can easily earn more thanks to the interest rate hike. However, before investing you must consider your income, expenses, liquidity requirements, and financial goals to make sure you make the right decision.

Lastly, with Bajaj Finance you need not worry about faulty and untimely payments. With the highest credit ratings of AAA/STABLE bestowed by ICRA and CRISIL, you can be assured that your money is in good hands. Invest in a Bajaj Finance FD to earn more and grow your savings seamlessly.
