– How to Create a PPF Account in SBI –

 If you want to learn how to create a PPF account in SBI, this article will show you step to step way of creating a PPF in SBI, but before we go into showing all that, you should know a little about the state bank of India(SBI).

The firm is rated 216th on the Fortune Global 500 list of the world’s largest corporations as of 2017. It is the biggest bank in India with a 23 percent market share in assets, besides a share of one-fourth of the total loan and deposits market.

Things to Know Before  Creating a PPF Account

Public Provident Fund

Public Provident Fund (PPF) among others is a well-known long-term investment option scheme. It is sponsored by the Government of India. The public provident fund provides eye-catching interest rate and returns with a safety guarantee.

These returns are completely excused from Tax under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Investors can save tax from Rs. 500 to a maximum Rs. 1, 50,000 in one financial year, and can get facilities such as loan, withdrawal, and extension of account.

PPF is a pretty good substitute for self-employed people, or for those who are from disorganized sectors since EPF/GPF is not available for them.

Product Features of PPF

• An eye-catching interest rate of 7.6 percent is completely exempted from Income Tax under section 80C

• Good long-term investments of 15 years

• Deposit Amount as low as Rs.500  and maximum Rs.1,50,000 in one financial year

• Deposits can be done in a maximum of  12 transactions

• A loan can be availed between the 3rd to 6th financial year

• Partial withdrawal facility can be availed from 7th financial year onwards

• An account can be extended in a block period of 5 years after maturity

Opening a PPF Account

Normally, the easy way of opening a PPF account is via the post office or a bank branch. But in a situation where you’re an SBI customer, opening a PPF is very easy, that can be finished in few minutes without any difficulty.  Customers can alternatively open a PPF account online anytime, 24X7.

SBI has publicized the launch of a digital service that allows clients to open a Public Provident Fund (PPF) account promptly in a totally online and paperless way.

An SBI Bank client has the choice of opening a PPF account expediently anytime and anywhere, using the bank’s digital channels of the internet and mobile banking/Mobile App.
