Interest rate cut for long term saving schemes 
 

The interest rates of Public Provident Fund (PPF), Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP), Senior Citizens Savings Scheme, 2004, and Sukanya Samriddhi Account (the Girl Child Scheme) were reduced by 0.10 percentage point for the quarter 01.10.2016 to 31.12.2016, and not 0.10 percentage per annum.

The reduction in the rates of interest by 0.10 percentage point was necessitated by a significant fall in the yields on Government Securities of comparable maturities.

This was stated by Shri Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
