Latest Post Office Small Saving Schemes Interest rates July-Sept 2019

Just to quickly recap, last quarter, there was no change in interest rates of all schemes.

However, this time, the Government reduced the interest of all Post Office Small Saving Schemes Interest Rates (except savings account interest rate, which was retained at 4%) for the period of July to September for 10 basis points. It is all due to the falling interest rate in Bank FDs and also due to RBI reduced the interest rate in its recent monetary policy.

  1. Informative article.
    Need your guidance in following. Is MIS scheme of Post office safe? I have invested 15 lakhs in DHFL (FD), looks like I will lose the amount. What can I do to recover? Investing in FDs , even banks is terrifying for me now. I have 5 lakhs in PNBHFL, thinking of taking it out. I need interest on a monthly basis for household expenses. Can I put this amount in MIS or Liquid mutual fund ?
