Post Office Scheme

This is how you will add more than 8 lakh

If you invest Rs 1,000 every month in this scheme, you will invest Rs 12,000 in a year. The scheme will mature after 15 years, but you have to extend it twice in blocks of 5 years each and continue the investment for 25 years continuously. If you invest Rs 1,000 every month for 25 years, you will invest a total of Rs 3,00,000. But at the rate of 7.1 percent interest, you will get Rs 5,24,641 only from interest and your maturity amount will be Rs 8,24,641.

This is how extension will happen with contribution

PPF account extension is done in blocks of 5 years each. In case of PPF extension, the investor has two options – first, account extension with contribution and second, account extension without investment. You have to get extension with contribution. For this, you will have to submit an application to the bank or post office, wherever you have an account. Keep in mind that you will have to submit this application before the completion of 1 year from the date of maturity and a form will have to be filled for extension. The form will be submitted in the same post office/bank branch where the PPF account has been opened. If you are unable to submit this form on time, then you will not be able to contribute to the account.

There will also be tax savings in three ways

PPF is an EEE category scheme, so you will get tax exemption in three ways in this scheme. EEE means Exempt Exempt Exempt. In the schemes falling under this category, there is no tax on the amount deposited annually, apart from this, there is no tax on the interest earned every year and the entire amount received at the time of maturity is also tax free, that is, there is tax saving in all three – investment, interest/return and maturity.
