One of the most important factors you must consider while choosing a fixed deposit is the interest rate offered by the issuer. It determines how much returns you will make on a particular FD investment.


There are two formulas that you can use to calculate total interest receivable on FD: simple and compound interest. Read on to know how to calculate ₹2 interest for ₹30,000 per month or year when you invest in a fixed deposit.

Formula with an Illustration

Like the ‘₹1 interest’ method, you can find out the total interest receivable on FD using the ‘₹2 interest for ₹30,000 per month’ method. Here is a table showcasing how to calculate ₹2 interest for a ₹30,000 FD per month using different methods:

Calculation Method



‘₹2 Interest for ₹30,000 Per Month’ Method

With ₹2 interest on ₹100, the annual interest rate would be 2 X 12 = 24%

Assume that you invest ₹30,000 for monthly payouts at a 2% interest rate. This means your annual interest rate would be 24%.

Given this, the monthly interest amount would be: 30,000 X 2/100 = ₹600.

Simple Interest Method

The formula for simple interest is as follows:

I = p × r × t



  • I = Interest

  • P = Principal Amount 

  • r = Interest Rate

  • t = Time Period of Investment

If you invest ₹30,000 for one year, the interest earned at the end of the tenor would be - 30,000 X 24/100 X 1 = ₹7,200.


Monthly interest: 7,200/12 = ₹600 

Compound Interest Method

The formula for compound interest is as follows: 

I = [P (1 + r/n)^n X t] – P



  • I = Value of Interest 

  • r= Interest Rate (in decimal format)

  • n = Number of Periods the Interest Compounds

  • t = Tenor

If you invest ₹30,000 for one year with annual compounding, the interest amount would be: 

[30,000 X (1+0.24/1)^1*1] - 30,000 = ₹7,200

Monthly interest: 7200/12 = ₹600

₹2 Interest for ₹30,000 Per Month

The interest receivable for any amount you invest in an FD depends on whether the issuer uses the simple interest or compound interest formula. Generally, if you invest ₹30,000 in an FD, where the interest is compounded annually, your returns would be higher. 


This is because the interest gets added to the principal to calculate the next interest amount. However, remember that there is a risk of error in manual calculations. But you can avoid this when you use the FD calculator available on Bajaj Markets.
