This scheme is similar to fixed deposit scheme where interest doesn’t gets reinvested, but you withdraw the amount of interest every month to cater to your basic expenses. Same as NSCs you need to invest your money in POMIS through your nearby post office. The scheme provides a decent interest rate of 8.4 – 8.7 % there is no age limit for investing in such scheme but there is a limited amount you can invest. Check with your nearby post-office for details. Both the above schemes mentioned above can fetch you deductions in income tax. Under the section 80 C of income tax law.

You all are correct but actually banks compound interests every quarter thus handing you over with rs. 16,386 on maturity. So at the end of the day you are getting an interestvrate of 10.38% per annum. You can open up a fixed deposit for different duartions varying ranging from 7 days to 10 years. And your investment could range from as little as rs. 100 to unlimited amount with some banks. Be cautious while investing, as different banks offer different interest rates. And the interest rates will also vary with the duration you want to invest in. You get income tax benefit on investing in 5year FD. Given your prior notice to the bank. Suppose your annual income for the current year is rs. 500000 and you invested a sum of 200000 under the 5 year FD scheme.
