What is the applicable latest Post Office Small Saving Schemes Interest rates Oct-Dec 2019? The government announced the interest rate for PPF, Sukanya Samriddhi, NSC, KVP Interest Rates Oct-Dec 2019. Let us see the changes applicable with effective from 1st October 2019.

Earlier the interest rates used to be announced on yearly once. However, now from 2016-17, the rate of interest will be fixed on a quarterly basis. I already wrote a detailed post on this. I am providing the links to those earlier posts below.

Based on these new changes, now onward interest rate will be declared on a quarterly basis.

Just to quickly recap, last quarter, 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.

However, this time, the Government kept the rates unchanged. Latest Post Office Small Saving Schemes Interest rates Oct-Dec 2019

You notice that after a long gap, even though the current interest rate reduced to 10 basis points, but in the last one year, the period of July-Sept 2018 was the lowest. After that, it is a steady up and down but not so drastic fall like 2nd quarter 2018.

  1. While thanking you sir for devoting your valuable time in rendering advice on financial matters, i have a clarification:
    I HAD OPENED A TD IN CBS POST OFFICE FOR 1 YEAR. I HAD READ IN THE GUIDELINES THAT ‘ WHEN TD MATURES IN CBS PO’S IT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED FOR THE PERIOD FOR WHICH IT WAS INITIALLY OPENED’ WHEN I APPROACHED POST OFFICE AND CLOSED THE TD ACCOUNT SOON AFTER 2 YEARS OF INITIAL OPENING, WITH THE HOPE THAT AUTO RENEWAL WILL TAKE CARE OF THE AMOUNT. TO MY SURPRISE I WAS ONLY ALLOWED 4% SIMPLE INTEREST FOR THE 2ND YEAR, AND ADVISED ME TO HAVE APPROACHED POST OFFICE BEFORE COMPLETION OF 2ND YEAR. IF THIS IS FAIR, WHY AUTO RENEWAL IS STATED IN THEIR RULINGS? FORWARDED FOR EXPERT ADVICE

  2. Hello sir,

    Recently I opened NSC in a post office myself.But after my submission of application, one of the agents reached the counter and was discussing about my NSC as there is some nexus between post office staff and the agent.

    How to check whether the staff passed NSC through the agent or directly to me?

    Kindly let me know.

    Regards
    Raj

    • Dear Raj,
      You have all the rights to question and cross-check. If possible directly approach to the Head of that particular post office.
