PPF, NSC, MIS, SSA, SCSS.. - SMALL SAVING SCHEMES RATES REVISED from April 1, 2017

PPF, NSC, MIS, SSA, SCSS..  - SMALL SAVING SCHEMES RATES REVISED from April 1, 2017

The central Government has announced revised rates of interest on various small savings schemes ( PPF, MIS, SSA, SCSS.. ) for the first quarter of the financial year 2017-18.

To bring such rates somewhat closer to market rates, the Government has decided to effect a reduction of 0.1% (10 basis points) in interest rates across the board in all the schemes except the Post Office Savings Account, which has been left untouched.


Various small savings schemes will continue to be very attractive compared to bank deposits of similar maturities and tenor even after this marginal reduction in interest rates by 0.1%.
