Financial year not changed including banks.
Bank will not provide such certificate, but you can claim deduction of such investment in ITR of FY 2019-20.

Yes... I agreed with Mr CA R SEETHARAMAN Sir... FY 19-20 not extended it's also the same period of April to March only. Also "MINISTRY OF FINANCE" give a press release as "It's FAKE NEWS"... As per my view, The above said PPF Deduction can't be avail in FY 19-20 if it's paid on or after 1st Apr-20... Bcoz, Deduction can be avail which is due fall on or before 31st Mar-20 and it's paid on or before 30th Jun-2020...

For ex : If Your march month's LIC due is 30th Mar-20. But, in current situation You are not paid it on or before 30th Mar-20. The said due can be pay on or before 30th Jun-2020 and You can claim deduction in FY 19-20 ITR. For PPF account no more due dates. it can be pay April to March. no more due dates or periodical payments.

Date for claiming Deduction for Investment in Tax Saving Instruments has been increased from March 31st 2020 to June 30, 2020. Hence if investment in PPF is made upto 30th June 2020, it can be claimed as deduction for FY 2019-20.

It's applicable to which is fall due in February and March 20 investments. It's not applicable to PPF deposits. PPF deposit don't have due dates...

The Press release by the Government dt. 31.03.2020 has made it very clear that date for making investments/payments for claiming deductions under chapter VI A-B including Sec 80C (LIC, PPF, NSC) etc. , 80D, 80G has been extended upto 30.06.2020. So PPF clearly covered.

Refer the press release point no 4 from 1st word as "DUE Dates.... "

@ Raja P M Sir, kindly note that the Press Release dated 31.03.2020 specifically mentions :

(iii) The date for making various investment/payment for claiming
deduction under Chapter-VIA-B of IT Act which includes
Section 80C (LIC, PPF, NSC etc.), 80D (Mediclaim), 80G
(Donations), etc. has been extended to 30th June, 2020. Hence
the investment/payment can be made up to 30.06.2020 for
claiming the deduction under these sections for FY 2019-20.

Hope this makes all clear.
