If a steady stream of income interests you, then monthly payout FDs could be your answer. Instead of receiving a lump sum at maturity, these FDs provide regular interest payments directly deposited into your account every month. 

 

Opting for monthly interest payout provides you with a predictable flow of additional income. However, the extent of its usefulness for financial needs depends on the amount deposited and the FD interest rate offered by  banks and NBFCs.
