There is no maximum investment limit. Let us know that interest is not paid to the investor every year, but it gets deposited. NSCs have a lock-in period of 5 years.

Exemption in income tax also

If you invest in NSC, then you can get tax exemption by investing up to Rs 1.5 lakh per year in NSC under Section 80C of Income Tax. On taxable income, the amount is deducted from the total income.

If you have invested in NSC, then the amount cannot be invested twice in the fifth year or the last year of maturity. The amount of interest received from the NSC in the final year is added to the certificate holder’s income and the tax is applied accordingly. You can take a loan on the basis of NSC.
