In old age, the biggest strength of any person is his money. If you want to create a substantial amount for old age, then you have to make a habit of investing with your first salary.

Right now you are getting interest at 7.1% in PPF. In this you get the benefit of compounding interest. If you start investing in PPF scheme from the age of 23, then at the age of 60, you can easily add a fund of Rs 1 crore to it. Know here how much amount you will have to invest for how long.
Add 1 crore fund like this
If you want to beautify your old age, then you have to invest Rs 5000 in PPF continuously for 37 years. Although the PPF scheme matures in 15 years, but if you want to continue it further, then you can get the PPF extended for 5-5 years. If you invest Rs 5000 every month in PPF at the age of 23 and continue it continuously for 37 years, then at the age of 60 you can easily add more than 1 crore fund.

For a fund of one crore, you will have to get PPF extension done 5 times because 15 years of PPF will be completed at the age of 38 years.
