Benefit of compound interest
This account matures in 15 years. The money deposited in this account earns compound interest. Suppose you deposited Rs 500, on which interest of Rs 30 was received in one year, then from next year the interest will be calculated on Rs 530. Let’s look at an example to understand the benefits of PPF. Suppose you deposit 500 rupees every month in this account. This deposit of Rs 500 will last for 15 years and on maturity will become Rs 90,000. On this you will get an interest of Rs 67,784. Accordingly, after 15 years, the total amount will be Rs 1,57,784 in your hands. That is, on depositing 90 thousand rupees, you will get more than 1.5 lakh rupees.
Account start with Rs.500
Suppose a person has deposited Rs 1,000 in PPF account every month. A deposit of Rs 1000 will become Rs 1,80,000 in 15 years. On this you will get interest of Rs 1,35,567. Add both the amounts after 15 years on maturity it will be Rs 3,15,567. If a person deposits 2 thousand or 24 thousand rupees annually every month, then his total deposit amount will be Rs 3,36,000. 2,71,135 will be available as interest on this. Adding the total money, the depositor will get Rs 6,31,135 in his hand.
How much will you get after depositing 10 thousand
Someone has more budget and he deposits 4 thousand every month or 48 thousand rupees annually. Accordingly, that person will deposit Rs 7,20,000 in 15 years. Finally, on maturity, he will get Rs 12,62,271. If a person deposits Rs 10,000 every month then the total deposit amount in 15 years will be Rs 18,00,000.
