PPF Closing Amount, Loan and Withdraw Amount Calculation
The interest rate is 8.10%. Based on the interest rate and also with the help of PPF Calculator you will get the correct amount. So, for the example which is given above, we will provide explanation i.e.
The Deposit Amount =Rs.10000/-
Rate of Interest = 8.10% then Closing amount for the first year is
Rate of Interest = 10000*8.10
Closing Amount = Deposit Amount + Rate of Interest
In this way, the Closing amount of every year is calculated. Then after that, you have an option to take a loan from the 3rd financial year to the sixth year. For calculating Loan amount i.e.
deposit Amount = Rs.10000/-, the Rate of Interest = 8.10%, then the closing amount = 10810/-.
Loan for the third year = 25% of 1st year closing amount
In the same way, the loan amount is also calculated for remaining years. Then from the 7th financial year, you can withdraw the amount from the PPF Account.
For the above example, you can withdraw the amount of Rs. 17564/- in the 7th financial year.
i.e. PPF withdraw Process = 50% of the 3rd year closing amount
In the same way, the withdrawn amount is calculated for remaining years. As mentioned earlier only one partial withdraw can be allowed for one year.
Note: A PPF Account cannot be closed for any reason, only except the death of the Account Holder.
