Post Office: Learn fresh interest rates and in how many days money will double

new Delhi. The post office has about half a dozen savings schemes. This includes schemes like FDs of the bank to other small savings schemes. The most important thing is that the post office is getting more interest from the bank. At the same time, the money deposited in the post office is completely safe. 

Because the security of the money deposited in the post office is guaranteed by the Government of India. Such guarantee of security of deposit money is also not with the bank. If the bank is drowned, then only your deposit up to Rs 5 lakh is safe, it is sure to sink more. But the money deposited in the post office is safe. In a post office deposit scheme, the money doubles. The post office interest rates are reviewed every three months. In such a situation, let us know how much interest is being received on the deposit schemes of the post office at this time.

These interest rates are applicable from 1 July 2020. Keep in mind that the post office interest rates are reviewed every three months, and can be changed accordingly.
