It is a 15 years scheme, Minimum deposit per year is Rs.500/- and maximum is Rs. 1,00,000/- Interest is 8.8 % compounded, withdrawl is permitted after 4 year-50% of the balance amount at the end of 3rd year.Withdrawl is tax exempted and even maturity amount after 15 % years is full tax proof, the real beautiful thing is this cannot be court attached

At the end of 15Years you can close the account or can extend for another 5 years
