New Delhi: The Post Office’s Public Provident Fund offers you the opportunity to become a millionaire. You only need to invest Rs 417 per day to achieve this. Although this account has a 15-year maturity period, you can extend it twice for further 5-5 years. In addition, you will receive a tax benefit from this plan. At the same time, the most important aspect of this plan is that you will earn 7.1 percent interest yearly, as well as the benefit of compound interest every year. Here’s what you need to know about the nitty gritties of the plan.
If you invest for 15 years, or till maturity, and put aside a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh every year, or Rs 12,500 per month and Rs 417 per day, your total investment will be Rs 22.50 lakhs. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of compounding at maturity, with an annual interest rate of 7.1 percent. You will receive Rs 18.18 lakh as interest when the loan matures. That means, you will receive Rs 40.68 lakh in total. Read More: 7th Pay Commission: THESE 3 big developments may happen in July
