Your deposited amount of Rs 1.5 lakh in this account is completely trucks free. Here Triple E means – There is no tax on the money you invest. The interest earned on it is also tax free and the amount received as maturity after 15 years is also not taxable. Therefore, PPF is considered to be the most efficient investment in terms of saving tax.

There are many types of flexibilities or exemptions regarding the amount of money you have to deposit in PPF. If you want, you can also open a PPF account for Rs 100. One can deposit a minimum of Rs 500 and a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh every year. If you want, you can do this investment in 12 times in a year or you can deposit money in a lumpsum amount. At present, interest of 7.10 percent is being received from the government on PPF. Earlier its quantity was 7.60 percent. The interest in this account earns compound interest.

4- Withdrawal of money and loan facility

After two years, up to 25% of the total deposited money can be availed as a loan. However, the loan can be taken up to the completion of two years (at the beginning of the third year) and before 6 years. The loan amount has to be repaid within 36 months. 2% more interest has to be paid on the loan amount than the percentage interest earned on PPF. After the completion of 7 years, you can withdraw some money from the fund.

5- Can extend the period of depositing money

The tenure of PPF account is 15 years. After this period the account matures. The maturity money can either be taken by the customer or he can reinvest it if he wants. The customer gets the facility of investment after 15 years and after 5 years. That is, the maturity money should be deposited for the next 5 years. Now whatever money will be deposited in this account will get interest on it, the maturity amount will also be added to this benefit. In this way an investment of a few thousand can be converted into several lakh rupees.
