Check Monthly Interest Rate on your Fixed Deposits

The next step in the laddering strategy involves reinvesting your existing FDs into a new 3-year plan. So after the maturity of your first FD, you can reinvest it for three years. This strategy will continue till your third FD is invested in a new 3-year Bajaj Finance FD. This strategy can help you to grow your savings with minimal risks.

Another strategy to enhance your savings is to choose a Bajaj Finance Systematic Deposit Plan (SDP). Here, you can choose from two plans:


  1. Monthly Maturity Scheme: You need to make between 6 and 47 deposits for a maximum tenure of 60 months. This goal-based scheme can help you receive multiple monthly payouts.

  2. Single Maturity Scheme: You need to make between 6 and 48 deposits for a maximum tenure of 60 months. This unique investment scheme can help you receive a lump sum amount on maturity.
