A reader asks,
Recently, there was a hike in the EPF (Employee Provident fund) interest rate. Will this rate be applicable for the PPF (Public Provident Fund) too? Please publish this question on your blog as it would clarify facts for a lot of investors like myself.
The answer is NO — currently there is no link between the administered interest rates for the EPF and the PPF. That said, this article is perhaps the best analysis I’ve come across on the proposed hike.
