## Points to Know Before Determining the FD Interest on 1 Crore

To calculate the monthly interest on Rs. 1 crore deposits, you must determine the annual interest on your deposit. Now, divide this interest by 12 to get the monthly interest. However, before you do that, here are some points that you need to keep in mind:

• The senior citizen interest rate is higher. So, if your age is 60 or more or if you open a fixed deposit account in the name of a senior citizen, you will be entitled to a relatively higher rate.
• The interest rate depends on the deposit tenure. In most cases for longer tenures, the interest rate is higher.
• Some financial institutions compound the interest quarterly. In such cases, the interest income would increase. So, check the compounding frequency when calculating the Rs.1 crore FD interest per month.
• Different financial institutions have different rates of interest. So, the interest income will also be dependent on your choice of financial institution at which you would like to park your FD.

## Alternate Method For Calculating Monthly Interest on Rs.1 Cr FD

The interest can be calculated by subtracting the deposited amount from the maturity amount. The following methodology is apt for cumulative FDs.:

A = P (1 + R/N) (T^N)

Here,

A – Maturity amount

P – Deposited amount

R – Interest rate

N – Compounding frequency

T – Deposit term

For example, if you deposit Rs.1 crore for one year at 6% interest compounded quarterly, the amount would be calculated as follows:

A = 1,00,00,000 * (1 + 0.06/4) ^ (1 ^ 4)

= Rs.1,06,13,635.50

You get the annual interest income by deducting the maturity amount from the deposited amount.

So, annual interest = Rs.Rs.1,06,13,635.50 – Rs.1,00,00,000

= Rs.6,13,636

The monthly interest would be Rs.6,13,636/12 = Rs.51,136

## FAQs

### Do I have to pay tax on my interest income from Rs.1 crore fixed deposits?

If you are below 60, your interest income from Rs.1 crore fixed deposits above Rs. 10,000 would be fully taxable. In this case, the interest gets added to the head ‘income from other sources’ and taxed at your income tax slab rate.
However, interest income up to Rs.50,000 can be claimed as a deduction from your taxable income if you are a senior citizen. This deduction is available under Section 80TTB of the Income Tax Act, 1961. However, if this income exceeds Rs.50,000, it would be taxed in your hands.

### Will TDS be deducted from the monthly interest on Rs.1 crore FD?

If you are below 60 years and your aggregate interest income exceeds Rs.40,000 in a financial year, TDS would be deducted from the interest income. The financial institution would deduct TDS at 10% before crediting the income to your account. However, if you are a senior citizen, the limit for TDS deduction is Rs.50,000. If you fall in the higher tax bracket of 20% or 30%, you must pay the differential tax on the interest income when you file your income tax returns.

### Will Rs.1 crore FD give any tax benefit on investments?

If you open a 5-year tax-saving FD account with a bank or a post office, the amount you deposit is allowed as a deduction under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. However, the deduction limit is Rs.1.5 lakhs. So, if you deposit Rs.1 crore, you can claim a deduction on investments up to Rs.1.5 lakhs only.

### Can I close the fixed deposit account prematurely?

Yes, many banks, NBFCs and post offices allow premature closure of the fixed deposit account with penalty. Different financial institutions may apply different penalties for premature closure.

### How to open the Rs.1 crore fixed deposit account?

You can open the Rs.1 crore fixed deposit account online or offline. For online deposits, visit the financial institution’s website or mobile app and make the deposit. Offline deposits require a physical application at the branch.
