- It helps you to save for your long term goals
- PPF gives you the income tax benefit under Section 80C with Old Tax Regime. You can get maximum deduction of Rs. 1.5 Lakh in a Financial Year to save income tax
- Since PPF is a government backed saving scheme, the interest amount that gets accumulated in your account is guaranteed
- Monthly Interest is calculated in PPF account which is compounded annually. Which means the interest you get every month in PPF is added to your PPF account at the end of financial year, which earns you interest in upcoming months
- You can take loan against your PPF account at interest rate that is 2% more than current interest rate in PPF, after 5 years of opening of PPF account
- Partial withdrawal is also available in PPF after 5 years of account opening
- The latest interest rate in PPF is 7.1% for the quarter July 2023 to September 2023
- This interest rate is reviewed every quarter by government of India and is subjected to be updated for any quarter
- If interest rate is updated for any specific quarter, than it is applied to your current PPF balance to calculate monthly interest
How is interest on PPF calculated?
As mentioned above, PPF interest is calculated on monthly basis and is added to your balance at the end of financial year (31st March).
Let us understand interest calculation with example:
Deposits on or before 5th day of Month
If you make Rs. 2000 deposit in the month of April (before 5th) and your current balance becomes Rs. 2000 after this deposit, below are the steps to calculate April month’s interest:
- Get monthly interest rate by dividing 7.1% / 12 = 0.5916%
- Get monthly interest using formula = monthly interest rate * balance / 100 = 0.5916% * Rs. 2000 / 100 = Rs. 11.83
- So this Rs. 11.83 is the interest for april month on your balance of Rs. 2000
- Note that interest is calculated on your balance and not of the current month’s deposit
Let’s see another example where deposit is after 5th day of month
Deposits after 5th day of Month
If you make deposit of Rs. 2000 on 10th of May and your current balance becomes Rs. 4000:
- Since you made deposit after 5th day, balance till 5th day will be considered in this case which is Rs. 2000
- So for April you already received Rs. 11.83 interest, for may month as well you will receive same Rs. 11.83 as interest since your balance on 5th day of may was Rs. 2000
- In the month of June you balance of Rs. 4000 will be considered and June month’s interest will be:
= monthly interest * balance / 100
= 0.5916% * Rs. 4000 / 100 = Rs. 23.66
- So deposits made after 5th day of month will start getting interest from next month onwards

|Deposits in PPF provide income tax benefits||Only 5 year tax saving FD provides income tax benefits|
|Interest earned in PPF is not taxable||Interest earned in FD is taxable|
|Interest rate is reviewed quarterly and can change over time||Interest rate applied while opening FD will be fixed throughout the FD tenure|
|You cannot withdraw from PPF account before 5 years||You can break FD and liquidate entire amount before maturity period whenever required|

Can I withdraw money from PPF in 2 years?
No you cannot withdraw month from PPF account after 2 years of account opening. You can partially withdraw from your PPF account after 5 years of account opening.
