What is PPF and How It Works?

The Public Provident Fund (PPF) is a government-backed savings scheme designed to encourage long-term savings among Indian citizens. Individuals deposit a fixed amount annually, and the government offers attractive interest rates, compounded annually. PPF accounts have a maturity period of 15 years, and investors have the option to extend in blocks of 5 years. 

The scheme falls under the EEE (Exempt-Exempt-Exempt) tax category, providing tax benefits on the principal, interest, and maturity amounts. The interest rates are fixed quarterly by the Ministry of Finance. Currently, PPF offers an interest rate of 7.1% compounded annually. PPF is a reliable and popular investment choice for those seeking stability and tax advantages.
