  2. For the amount which is in PPF amount before April 1st 2012, Rate of interest is 8.6%.

    Effective from April 1st 2012, rate of interest will be 8.8%. In other words, for deposits made earlier also effective from April 1st 2012, rate of interest is 8.8%. Enjoy every penny.

    1. In senior citizen scheme Interest rate is fixed and interest rate applicable at the time of deposit remain applicable for whole period of investment ...so no change thereafter.
      As you have invested on August 2010 , so no change in interest rate for you.
