PPF and Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme interest rate July-Sept 2016

Recently Government announced  Post Office Small Savings Schemes and the schemes like PPF and Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme interest rate July-Sept 2016. Let us see whether there is any change it or not.

First recap the changes done to all Post Office Savings schemes for the year 2016. Earlier the interest rates used to be announced on yearly once. However, the rate of interest will be fixed on a quarterly basis. I already wrote a detailed post on this. I am providing the links of those earlier posts below.

Based on these new changes, now onward interest rate will be declared on a quarterly basis. The last quarter interest rate can be viewed in my earlier post “Interest of PPF KVP NSC SCSS and Sukanya Samriddhi for April-June 2016“.

Below is the timetable for change in interest rates for all Post Office Savings Schemes.

  2. Hello Mr. Basu

    My query is regarding PF too. I have worked around 3 years in a company. It was contract based job, which was renewing every year. My current PF account has accumulated around 1.5 lakh amount. This April i left job due to maternity issues. I have not decided yet i will continue my job in a year or two.(Depend upon my baby’s situation). Kindly suggest should i withdraw my PF or stay it ideal in PF account? As per me Pf account interest rate is better than FD rates and interest is tax free too.

  3. Hi Basu,

    Again i am troubling you with query.

    I am changing my company is it good to continue the same PF account or withdraw the account amount?
    The current PF account has acculmulated around 3.5 lakh amount and its been 7.5 years in my current company.

    Is it good to withdraw that amount and invest in FD/NSC/Mutual? or to continue?

    Few say if i withdraw the amount tax will be deducted? if i continue the same account do i get interest?

    Please do let me know on the same.

    1. Vandana-No issues 🙂 Better to continue. Because it is a retirement product. However, treat this as debt product for your retirement corpus generation. Frequent withdrawal at each job may not be wise idea.

  4. sir I have UAN number but my Kyc and adhaar not updated by my previous employer and he is not interested to update in UAN portal so can I apply for pf.
