### How to Calculate Post Office Recurring Deposit (RD)

If you want to calculate the final maturity amount after a certain number of years, follow the below steps:

1. Calculate Monthly Maturity Amount:
• You’re investing money monthly (let’s say Rs1000 each month).
• The formula to find out how much your investment grows each month is M = P(1 + r/n)^(nt).
• M is the maturity amount (how much money you’ll have at the end).
• P is the monthly investment (Rs1000 in your example).
• r is the annual interest rate (0.074 or 7.4% in your case).
• n is the number of times interest is compounded per year (12 if it’s monthly).
• t is the investment period in years (60 months or 5 years in your case).
• So, for the first month, plug in the values into the formula: M1 = 1000(1 + 0.074/12)^(12*5) = Rs1,414.78.
2. Calculate Subsequent Monthly Maturity Amounts:
• For each following month, you reduce the investment period by one month and use the same formula.
• For the second month, it becomes M2 = 1000(1 + 0.074/12)^(12*4), and so on.
• Repeat this process for each month until you reach the end of the investment period.
3. Final Maturity Amount:
• Add up all the monthly maturity amounts for the 60-month investment period.
• For example, M1 + M2 + … + M60 gives you the total amount you’ll have at the end of the 5 years.

In simpler terms, you’re figuring out how much your money grows each month with interest, and then adding up all those amounts to see how much you’ll have at the end of your investment period.
