Public Provident Fund or PPF is a government-backed long-term investment scheme that comes with a maturity of 15 years. It is considered a popular investment alternative that is preferred by millions of Indians due to its risk-free nature and the ability to generate tax-free returns. A Public Provident Fund account can be opened with nationalised banks like Punjab National Bank, SBI, etc. or with an individual’s local Post Office.
Today, private banks like Axis Bank, HDFC, ICICI, etc. have also facilitated opening PPF accounts with them. Individuals can avail benefits offered by this fund by submitting the application form with requisite details at any of the above-mentioned institutions, along with the required documents. Due to the long-term nature of this investment, it is important for you to track the PPF account balance periodically. You can check your PPF balance online and offline.
