Calculating Monthly Interest on ₹2 Lakh FD

Here's the calculation for a ₹2 lakh fixed deposit with a 7% interest rate, compounded quarterly, for a tenure of 1 year:

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

A – Maturity amount
P – Deposited amount (₹2,00,000)
R – Interest rate (7% or 0.07)
N – Compounding frequency (4 for quarterly compounding)
T – Deposit term (1 year)

Plugging in the values:
A = 2,00,000 * (1 + 0.07/4)^(4*1)
A = 2,00,000 * (1.0175)^4
A = ₹2,14,245/-

To find the annual interest, subtract the maturity amount from the deposited sum:
Annual interest = ₹2,14,245 - ₹2,00,000 = ₹14,245/-

For monthly interest, divide the annual interest by 12:
Monthly interest = ₹14,245 / 12 = ₹1,187/-

Therefore if you invest ₹2 lakhs in a fixed deposit with a 7% interest rate, compounded quarterly for 1 year, the monthly interest payout would be approximately ₹1,187.
