Post Office Savings Account

Only one account can be opened with one post office and can be transferred from one post office to another.
You can also open an account in the name of a minor. The Psot Office savings account interest rate is 4% and is fully taxable. However, no TDS is deducted on the same.
Under the non-cheque facility, the minimum balance which is required to be maintained is Rs.50/-

Post Office Monthly Income Scheme (POMIS)
Unique scheme which offers guaranteed fixed monthly income on the lump sum investment made by the investor
Any resident individual can open the MIS account in a single or joint holding pattern. A minor can also invest in this scheme. If the minor is of more than 10 years, then he can even operate the account
The minimum limit for investment is Rs. 1000 and the maximum investment limit is Rs. 4.5 lakhs in a single holding account and Rs. 9 lakhs for joint accounts under the Monthly Income Scheme of Post Office
Currently, the MIS interest rate in the post office is 6.6% per annum payable monthly with a maturity period of 5 years. For example, Mr. Suresh invests Rs. 2,00,000 in Post Office Monthly Income Scheme. He will receive Rs. 1068 every month as interest for 5 years. He will receive back the deposit on completion of the tenure. The amount so received monthly can also be further invested in post office recurring deposits.
Investors can hold multiple accounts with a maximum investment of Rs. 4.5 lakh by combining balances in all the accounts. Joint accounts will have equal shares from all holders. If we continue with the above example, Mr. Suresh would be able to open a joint account with his wife for a maximum amount of Rs. 2.5 lakh
Post Office monthly income scheme also offers liquidity by allowing investors to withdraw the deposit after 1 year. However, there will be a penalty of 2% on deposit if withdrawn between 1 year-3 years and 1% penalty on withdrawals after 3 years
