How Loan against FD Works?
You need the amount for 1 month due to an emergency.
It is common to charge an interest at (Fix deposit rate + x) % p.a.
Let us assume that in your condition, x= 3.
Thus, the loan rate will be (12+3) % p. a. = 15% p.a.
That is 1.25% per month.
Since the money that you need is Rs 600,000, you will borrow only that much. Since you will be getting it back after a month, the period of your borrowing is 1 month.
So, the interest expense for you turns out to be Rs 7,500 (600000*0.0125)
