In this wonderful scheme of Post Office, not only the money remains safe, but the interest is also higher than that of banks. If you want to invest for 5 years then this can prove to be a profitable deal. In the Post Office Monthly Savings Scheme, you can invest a minimum of Rs 1,000 and a maximum of Rs 9 lakh through a single account. Whereas if you open a joint account, then the maximum investment limit in it has been fixed at Rs 15 lakh. That means both husband and wife together can invest up to Rs 15 lakh in a joint account. A maximum of three people can invest in a joint account.
You get so much interest on investment
If you want to arrange monthly income for yourself after or before retirement, then you can start investing in this scheme of the post office. The government is currently giving annual interest at the rate of 7.4 percent in this savings scheme. Under the scheme, this annual interest received on investment is distributed over 12 months and after this you keep getting this amount every month. If you do not withdraw the money monthly, it will remain in your post office savings account and you will get further interest by adding this money along with the principal amount.
This way you will get more than Rs 9000 every month
Now if you want a regular income of more than Rs 9,000 every month, then for this you will have to open a joint account. Suppose you invest Rs 15 lakh in it, then the amount of interest you will get at the rate of 7.4 percent per annum will be Rs 1.11 lakh. Now if you divide this interest amount equally in 12 months of the year, you will get Rs 9,250 every month. Whereas if you start investing by opening a single account, then on a maximum investment of Rs 9 lakh in this scheme, you will get Rs 66,600 annually as interest, i.e. an income of Rs 5,550 every month.
