### Calculating Monthly Interest on a ₹ 60 Lakh FD - Alternate Method

To calculate interest for cumulative FDs, you can use the following formula:
A = P (1 + R/N)^(N*T)

Where:
A – Maturity amount
P – Deposited amount
R – Interest rate
N – Compounding frequency
T – Deposit term

For instance, if you deposit ₹ 60,00,000 for one year at a 6% interest rate compounded quarterly:
A = ₹ 63,68,181/-
To find the annual interest, subtract the maturity amount from the deposited sum:
Annual interest = ₹ 3,68,181/-
For monthly interest, divide the annual interest by 12:
Monthly interest = 30,682/-
