  2. Dear Sir, thanks for your blogs. Great insight.
    Quick question : When there is change in interest rates, as informed it is now quarterly effective FY 2016 – 2017, does it impact the existing investment ? For instance, I had started the RD 34 months ago. Will this change in interest rate impact the RD rate which was offered 34 months ago ? Require some clarity on this.

    • Dear Edgar,
      For RDs, FDs, SCSS and MIS, the interest is applicable which they offer during the time of booking it.

  3. Sir on 11.4.18 I invested one lac in NSC , now the rate of interest in NSC is 7.6 % . If I calculate the maturity amount comes 145200.66 but in my nsc pass book it shows 144232.00.
