I recently had the nomination on my Public Provident Fund (PPF) changed. The procedure is quite simple. (Note that the procedure that I described below is specific to State Bank of India because that’s where I have my PPF account but the procedure should be the same elsewhere too.)
- First, ask the Bank or Post Office where you have your PPF account for a “Change of Nomination” form. The one issued by State Bank of India is shown below (click on the image for a full-size version).
- Fill-up the form, have it witnessed, and hand it over to the Bank or Post Office.
- Have the new nomination details recorded in the passbook (State Bank of India now issues a printed passbook for PPF accounts as well). Don’t forget this step — you should have both the nomination registration number and the nominee (and guardian, if applicable) details recorded in the passbook.
That’s about it. Your new nomination is now in effect.
