PPF and other small savings investments will continue to deliver similar returns in a low-interest-rate environment. The interest rates on small savings schemes will be the same in January, February, and March 2022 as they were in October, November, and December 2021.

Earlier this year, during the West Bengal assembly polls, the Centre decided to reduce the interest rate. But the finance ministry swiftly revoked a steep interest rate cut of up to 1.1% for the first quarter on small savings schemes, citing oversight.

The PPF interest rate stays at 7.1 per cent per year, while the interest rate on the Senior Citizen Savings Scheme is 7.4 per cent per year. Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account will earn 7.6%.

With no change in the post office small savings schemes interest rate, the fixed-income investors can heave a sigh of relief. Even if the rates are changed, the new rates do not apply to all investors of all post office schemes. For NSC, KVP, Time deposits, Senior Citizens Savings Scheme (SCSS), the rate of interest remains fixed for investors until maturity. 

PPF and Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY) are the two prominent small savings schemes that witness a revision in the rate as and when the government revises them.
