Under this scheme, there is a maturity period of 15 years. However, this maturity period can be further extended by 5-5 years. Up to Rs 1.5 lakh can be invested annually under this scheme. If you also invest in PPF, then you should deposit the money before or on the 5th of every month. If you do not do this, you may have to bear the loss of your interest. If you deposit money before this date, then the interest of that month is also added to your account, but if the investment is made after the 5th, then the interest of that month will not be given to you.
