  • Girl-child saving scheme, Sukanya Samriddhi Account will see interest rate of 8.6 % as against 9.2 %, according to a Finance Ministry order.
  • However, unlike previous years when interest rates were set for the full year, the government will from now on set them every quarter, based on the previous 3-month yields on Government-Securities or G-Sec.
  • While the interest rate on Post Office savings has been retained at 4 %, the same for term deposits of one to five years has been cut.

  • The government had stated that the cut in small savings interest rate would help the economy move to 'a lower overall interest rate regime eventually and thereby help all, particularly low-income and salaried classes'.
  • The government has also permitted premature closure of PPF accounts 'in genuine cases', like serious ailment or higher education of children.
  • 'This shall be permitted with a penalty of 1 % reduction in interest payable on the whole deposit and only for the accounts having completed five years from the date of opening,' the finance ministry had said.
  • The interest rate for every quarter would be decided on the 15th of the preceding month. Interest rate for July-September quarter will be announced on June 15.
