Hi Manish – I am new in here and might have read almost 70% of your insightful articles within a week.
Your suggestion on using PPF as a means for tax free regular income appealed to me and so does the extension of PPF in 5year term to retain it. I was not aware of the latter before I read your articles.
I have a strange query regarding my PPF account and need your inputs. I really dont remember when I started my PPF account – should be around year 2000. I was not aware of it’s benefits and was (almost cursingly due to the annual reqt) transferring some 500-1000Rs to the account to keep it ‘alive’. I had shifted the account from SBI downsouth to an SBI in one part of Bangalore city and then next. My latest passbook shows entries from 2007 only but for sure the account was initially started before 2003. I don’t have my old PPF passbooks with me – must have got misplaced while shifting places.
My query is how to get the year of starting PPF account as I assume 15years is calculated from that year. Will the SBI bank people be able to help me with finding the start date or is there any website where I can find the reqd info by providing my current PPF A/C number.
Request your guidance & thanks a bunch for your articles!
