As i mentioned, only handicap of ICICI is limited no of branches offering PPF account. Pan india only 42 ICICI bank branches are authorized to offer PPF account i.e. only 1 in each city. Though you can operate your PPF account online but for any service request like Passbook updation etc you need to visit main branch. Pls find link of ICICI bank branches offering PPF account.

Hi Nitin,
I am also interested to open PPF a/c with ICICI because I have my salary account with ICICI and using Internet banking as well. Opening & maintaining another account in SBI will be troublesome.

As you mentioned to avail services from ICICI would be difficult (with limited branches for PPF) like updating passbook, I would like to know whether we can generate statements online and submit for IT declaration instead?

Also I would like to know what are other services we need to take on PPF accounts apart from deposit & statement which can be done through internet banking?

I see an option to request for PPF account in my ICICI internet banking site, is this process online completely? If it is then I need not submit any separate document & need not visit bank, please suggest.

Can I open PPF account on my Wife or Parent’s name & avail tax benefit on the same?

To claim tax benefit, Photocopy of PPF account Passbook along with Passbook covering Page which contains account holder details is required. Online statement will not be accepted.

For other services like Withdrawal (Loan) from PPF account or closure of PPF account, Physical presence is required.

Online PPF account is not truly Online. You can only apply/place online request but you need to submit printed application form along with documents to any branch but account can be opened only in designated branch (Which has Permission from Govt to open PPF account). List of designated branches for PPF account are as follows
http://www.icicibank.com/online-services/public-provident-fund/designated-branches.html

You can claim tax benefit only for contribution to PPF account in the name of your Wife or Children. You cannot claim tax benefit for PPF account in the name of your parents.

2 quick questions:
1) Can joint a/c holders (in SBI) be able to apply to PPF through same a/c?
2) Can the amount deposit be varied? (suppose, one day, i may be having some extra amount which i want to add to PPF)

Thanks for liking the post. To answer your query
1. No, the name of individual and his/her PAN should be same for both savings and PPF account linked to each other online. Alternatively you can open PPF account separately and can deposit the amount from your joint savings account through TPT (3rd Party Transfer) using net banking facility of joint savings account or through Standing instructions.

2. Yes, it can be different but total no of deposits cannot exceed 12 during the Financial Year.

Hi Nitin,
In Nov 13, I have subscribed to ULIP (Aegon Religare I-maximize plan) to save on tax & have some life cover. this was my first investment. Now I am planning to close it once It completes 1 year and Open PPF where i will get more returns (8 to 9%) guaranteed and a pure term plan for life cover, it will be lot more cheaper and can give me maximum returns.

All these investments I am looking for long term. (Retirement, Child Education etc)

Please share your opinion on this.

1. PF account of SBP can only be credited from linked SBP Savings account through net banking
2. You can transfer money from ICICI Bank to SBP savings account and then transfer the same to linked SBP PPF account.
3. I will not suggest. For convenience, open savings account and then open online PPF account linked to savings account.

Normally banks have criterion that both savings account and PPF account should be in same branch. I suggest you to check with the bank reg same. If bank does not agree then you transfer your old salary account to nearest branch and then open PPF account linked to this account.

Instead of opening new account, you may transfer your existing account to nearest branch. You just need to fill one form and submit in nearest branch. If you are working then a letter from HR with new address will suffice to change the address.

Dear Nitin,
I have 2 confusions regarding PPF investment in name of my wife, and would be grateful if you clarify these.

1. If I DONT invest any amount in my PPF a/c, but I invest RS 1.5 lakhs from my income into PPF a/c of my wife (Who is a housewife with no taxable income) then I can claim benefit under section 80C for this investment.
Am I Right??

2. Now I continue to do this for 15 years (till the time the PPF account of my wife matures) and keep on claiming tax benefit under section 80C, but after 15 years I close my wife’s PPF account and then all the amount accumulated in her PPF account will be treated as her income and not mine, so if that amount is invested in some FDs then that income from FDs will be treated as her income and not mine. So from tax point of view that income from FD will be clubbed in her income and not mine.

Am I right??

Ankit

Hi Nithin,
Please clarify my query.
I have started my PPF 14yrs ago and next 2yrs it would be maturing.
Since the interest gained is tax free, Should I declare the Principle amount as income for that year while filing returns?
If yes, then should I be paying tax for it as per my slab?

For example: My investment amount is 10laks and interest is 2lak, should I declare 10lak in “Other Sources of Income” (or any other section) while filing returns?

Thanks,

The amount contributed up to Rs.1.50 lakhs (threshold limit of Section 80C) is deductible from the gross total income under section 80C. Does this limit of Rs.1.50 lakhs includes the interest earned in March end or 1.50 excludes whatever interest we earn during the financial year?

You may submit application with post office that you have 2 PPF accounts and you would like to close your PPF account in Post Office. All the interest accrued on Post Office PPF account will be forfeited and principal amount will be refunded to you. In your case, you can close before maturity as you have 2 PPF accounts and should declare the same.

I’m 23 and have a regular income. I want to save for my retirement but what I found is that market is flooded with lots of confusing schemes:
1) PPF
2) VPF
3) EPF
4) SIP
5) FD
6) Pension Plans
7) then again Pension Plans like Atal Pension Yojana

While I understand they have different operational models, risk factors are different as well as target groups; but isn’t there something which I can rely upon to secure my returns after retirement?

EPF is deducted from my salary. Recently I discussed SIP (with all the risk factors involved) and found it very promising. What should a person look after? Is my EPF enough? I feel a decent FD along with regular EPF deductions would be apt if one is not willing to take (market) risks.

Your views?

Don’t worry, your money is safe. You should submit written request with bank to revive the account. You also need to deposit Rs 500 towards non-payment for each financial year. Therefore if it is inactive for 8 years then you need to pay Rs 4000. For every financial year there is a penalty of Rs 50 therefore Rs 400 as a penalty for 8 years.

You can contribute to your wife’s PPF account and claim tax deduction. You need copy of PPF passbook to claim the same. She can mention husband’s name at the time of account opening so that it appears in her PPF passbook.

Though it is your personal matter but i could not understand why you want to open PPF in your wife’s name. As she is non-working and housewife & you will be contributing therefore you should open PPF account in your name and claim tax deduction.

Hi Sir,

I have a query. My ppf account is 8 years old and I am eligible to premature withdraw around 75000 rupees which I urgently need.
1. Can I normally withdraw that amount or will have to tell them the reason?
2. Let’s say they allow for the withdraw and after few months within the same financial year I again deposits 150000, will I still be able to claim complete 150000 under 80c or only 75000 will be counted under 80c rebate since I have already withdrawn 75000 rs.
3. Let’s say I have withdrawn some money this year, can I withdraw some more money next year as well?
