Introduction cont...

There are various schemes offered by the Government of India (GoI) through post offices across the country. These schemes include the post-office Savings Account, the post-office Recurring Deposit Account, the post-office Time Deposit Account, the post-office Monthly Income Account, the post-office Public Provident Fund Account, the Kisan Vikas Patra, the National Savings Certificate, and the Senior Citizens Savings Scheme. The maturity period of these schemes varies from very short as in the case of a savings deposit to over 15 years as in the case of PPF. However, all these investment options come under the same risk class as all of them have fixed returns and are guaranteed by the GoI. The

returns vary between schemes based up their features and maturity period.

The responsibility of promoting and mobilizing small savings schemes rests with the National Savings Institute (NSI), a division of the ministry of finance. The NSI markets the small savings schemes on a nationwide basis and provides the government with feedback from customers.

The small savings scheme program aims at promoting the savings habit and providing safe investment avenues to people with limited income and savings potential. These schemes are operated through about 160,000 post offices across the country. The PPF scheme is also operated through more than 8000 branches of public sector banks.
