Public Provident Fund (PPF)

PPF is a better option to save tax and invest in a safe place. Under this scheme, any investor can deposit a minimum of Rs 500 and a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh in a year. An annual interest of 7.1 percent is available on PPF. The special thing about this scheme is that the investment money, interest received on the investment money, and maturity amount are all tax-free.

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY)

Under this scheme, the investor gets 8.2 percent interest. Under this scheme, any father can deposit Rs 250 to Rs 1.5 lakh annually in his daughter's account. The money is deposited for 15 years and when the daughter turns 21, the entire amount along with interest is returned to the investor. To invest in this, the daughter's age should be less than 10 years.

Its lock-in is for three years. After this, you can withdraw money whenever you want or continue your investment. If you withdraw the amount after 3 years, you get tax benefits.
