  • NSC comes with a guaranteed interest and is completely risk-free.
  • Interest is compounded and reinvested by default.
  • Investments of up to Rs 1.5 lakh in the National Savings Certificate can earn the subscriber a tax rebate under Section 80C. Furthermore, the interests earned on the certificates are also added back to the initial investment and qualify for a tax break as well.
  • There is no TDS on NSC payouts.
  • There is no limit on the maximum amount that a person can invest in an NSC.
  • The interest that is earned is also being reinvested in the NSC itself.
  • Subscribers can avail loans from banks against their certificates purchased.
  • There is a possibility where an individual can take NSC on behalf of a minor.

What is Employee Provident Fund?
Employee’s Provident Fund (EPF) is a retirement benefits scheme that’s available to all salaried employees. It’s a savings platform that helps employees save a fraction of their salary every month that can be used in the event that you are rendered unable to work, or upon retirement. This fund is maintained and overseen by the Employees Provident Fund Organisation of India (EPFO). EPF is one of the main platforms of savings in India for nearly all people working in Private Sector Organizations.


  • An employee has to pay a contribution of 12% of his salary and an equal contribution is paid by the employer. The entire 12% of your contribution goes into your EPF account along with 3.67% (out of 12%) from your employer, while the balance 8.33% of your employer’s side is diverted to your EPS (Employee’s Pension Scheme).
  • The employee gets a lump sum amount including self and employer’s contribution with interest on both, on retirement.
  • This generates an interest of 8% – 12%, which is decided by the government and the central board of trustees. The annual interest rate is available on the official EPF India website, and is currently at 8.75%.
  • Provides financial stability and security after retirement.
  • 50% of the contribution can be withdrawn, in the case to arrange funds for marriage, education need for self, child or any sibling.
  • One can withdraw from their EPF account for house construction, repair, and maintenance or for housing loan repayment.
  • EPF gives benefit for major surgical operations in a hospital for self or family (spouse, children, dependent parents) treatment.
  • EPF provides a facility for nominating family members to receive funds after the contributor’s demise.
  • One can transfer EPF account at the time of job change.
    If you withdraw after 5 years of total contribution to EPF (which includes multiple jobs) then your EPF withdrawal becomes tax-free.
  • Universal account number or UAN, a 12-digit number by EPFO gives control of his account to the employee and minimizes the role of employer.


  • For availing withdrawal for marriage and educational needs, you have to be in service for at least 7 years.
  • If you availed a housing loan and wish to make any repayment, you have completed 10 years of service.
  • Withdrawing EPF after job change is legal only when you are jobless for at least two months.
  • Withdrawal of EPF before 5 years of completion of service attracts Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) at 10%.
  • Exemption from TDS has been given to subscribers with no taxable income, provided they submit 15G/15H form.
  • If you withdraw before completing a period of 5 years, then all your previous years’ income gets recomputed as if the fund was unrecognized from the very beginning.
  • You can contribute the additional amount (over and above 12%) to Provident Fund by depositing VPF (Voluntary Provident Fund). However, the employer is not bound to make a matching contribution.


Any Indian resident individual working in private sector organizations can contribute to EPF. To become a member of the Employee Provident Fund one has to fill Form 11 and Nomination Form.


EPF certainly stands tall in investment avenues. The money is sovereign-backed and the interest earned is tax-free. In fact, it enjoys the Exempt, Exempt, Exempt (EEE) status as contributions are deductible from income. There is hardly any debt product that gives such high return with safety and assurance. Therefore, it is advisable to secure your financial future with the scheme like EPF.
