    “Cumulative Option” should give you maximum returns at the end of the term. Its because whatever interest is earned is added to your principal (I think on quarterly basis) and your interest for next quarter would be based on this increased principal amount. Basically, your interest anount is also re-invested. This keeps on adding till the end of the FD term. Its called cumulative as your interest is added to your prinicipal every time.

    Other Plans will give you fixed interest on your FD at regular intervals.
