  1. I am just wondering that what is the best time to invest in PPF account. So I can show it in income tax filing FY 2013-2014.

    Should I invest amt in PPF before 31-03-2014 or 1st Jan 2013 to 31 Dec 2013?

    Please clarify


    • If you had not invested in PPF in FY 2013-14, then you cannot claim the same by investing now. But if you asking for future, you can invest anytime in a financial year to get tax benefit. To get the best returns, invest in the beginning of a financial year i.e. between April 1 – 5 every year!

      • Dear Amit,

        Many thanks for your reply

        I invested 1,00,000/- on these dates (04/06/2013 – 70,000/- & 17/12/2013 – 30,000/-).
        So I already shown it in this year filing i.e. FY 2013-2014.

        And invested 1,00,000/- on 12-04-2014. I will claim this saving in next year filing i.e. FY 2014-2015

        Thanks again

        • Yes for FY 2014-15 the PPF limit has been enhanced to Rs 1.5 lakh. So you can invest Rs 50,000 more for additional tax benefit!
