This is how you will become a millionaire-

In this way, you will have to continue the investment of Rs 1,50,000 annually for 25 years.

Understand the calculation of becoming a millionaire-

If you continue investing in this scheme continuously for 25 years, then in 25 years you will invest Rs 37,50,000, but you will get Rs 65,58,015 as 7.1 percent interest. In this way, after 25 years including the invested amount and interest amount, you will get Rs 1,03,08,015 from PPF. In this way, you will be a millionaire in 25 years. Along with the job, if you invest in this scheme by adopting this strategy, then you will add a good amount of funds for old age.

Tax will be saved in three ways-

PPF is an EEE category scheme, so you will get 3 types of tax exemption in this scheme. EEE means Exempt Exempt Exempt. In the schemes falling in this category, there is no tax on the amount deposited annually, apart from this, the interest earned every year is not taxed and the entire amount received at the time of maturity is also tax-free i.e. investment, interest/return and Tax is saved in all three maturities.

Now understand how the extension will happen-

PPF account extension is done in blocks of 5 years. In the case of PPF extension, the investor has two types of options – first, account extension with contribution, and second, account extension without investment. You have to get an extension with a contribution. For this, you will have to submit an application to the bank or post office where you have an account. Keep in mind that you will have to give this application before completion of 1 year from the date of maturity and a form will have to be filled for extension. The form will be submitted to the same post office/bank branch where the PPF account has been opened. If you are not able to submit this form on time, you will not be able to contribute to your account.
