Penalty of Rs 50 on transferring more than 49,000 in a month in PPF Account ?

POSTED BY anil ON April 4, 2014 8:16 pm COMMENTS (5)

Hi,

Yesterday I transferred 50K from my ICICI savings account to PPF account , a penalty of 50 Rs was charged. I called up ICICI CSE , they told me that in a given month I can’t transfer more than 49000. Is this true ?. As per my understanding , the deposits in excess of 1 lacs/year will not earn any interest , there is no penalty.

EDIT: bank accepted their mistake , following up with them. This thread can be closed.

Regards,

Anil

    You cannot deposit more than 1 lakh in PPF.

    Did the bank revert the charges?

      The bank reverted the penalty charges . If you deposit amount exceeding 1 lacs , the excess amount will not earn any interest.
