KVP is a scheme that guarantees doubling of the money. For those people who have extra lump sum money but do not want to take any kind of risk with that money, this scheme can be a very beneficial deal for them.

KVP Post Office Scheme: If you are looking for a better option for long term investment and want to get guaranteed returns, then you will find many good schemes in the post office. Kisan Vikas Patra is one of them. The government started this scheme in the year 1988 with the aim of encouraging long term financial savings.

Initially this scheme was only for farmers, but now any Indian citizen can invest in it. Currently, interest is being given on this scheme at the rate of 7.5 percent. KVP scheme guarantees to double your investment in 115 months i.e. 9 years 7 months. If you invest Rs 5 lakh in this scheme, then after 115 months when it matures, you will get Rs 10 lakh as a return.

How much money can be invested

Investment in KVP can be started with just Rs 1000. There is no maximum investment limit. But if you invest more than Rs 50,000 in it, then it is mandatory for you to provide PAN card. To prevent the possibility of money laundering, the government has made PAN card mandatory for investing more than Rs 50 thousand in Kisan Vikas Patra in 2014. On the other hand, if you want to invest Rs 10 lakh and more, then you may have to give some documents to the post office like salary slip, ITR, bank statements and Aadhaar number.
