No. It is all taxable. What some of the schemes are exempt from is deduction of TDS like in MIS etc. Even Senior Citizen Scheme is subject to TDS. Currently PPF interest at Post office is exempt from tax. That will change once we migrate to EET regime in the new DTC.

I'm afraid the replies given by Sunil & Megha are incorrect.Interest earned on P.O. SB A/c is tax-free.The max. amt that can be kept in the A/c is Rs.1 lakh(singly) and Rs.2 Lahks(jointly).

Dear Balaji,

Megha & Sunil are correct.Interest recieved from savings account in post office was exempt u/s 80L (deduction in respect of interest on certain securities,dividends,etc.).No deduction u/s 80L is available from assessment year 2006-07.

My dear Harshal/Fatema,

Interest on SB A/c in a post-office is exempt u/s 10 of I.T.Act.It is a tax-free income.

FYI,Sec.80-L covered interest on P.O. Time Deposits,P.O.Recurring Deposits,National Savings Scheme,POMIS etc. but not P.O. SB interest.

Dear Ameet,

Rest assured,it is exempt.You can approach the P.O. and they'll provide you the reference material which will reflect the same.The pass-book issued by P.O. also has the details.
