PPF interest is 7.1% and not 7.9% more  
Can any body throw light on the proposed levy of income tax on interest on EPF? Is it applicable EPF only or PPF also? more  
EPF and PPF are different kind of investment and can't be compared. PPF interest is non taxable and can be extended indefinitely whereas EPF interest is fully taxable after you leave the job/retire but don't withdraw. more  
Mr. Mohit Pande is very right in pointing out this ambiguity. I understand PPF interest rates are decided every quarter and the current interest rate is only 7.1%, which is much less than EPF. Government should not put general public at loss who may not be having regular salary and investment returns in PPF may be their only income. more  
Absolutely I endorse Mohitji. Central government must raise the interest rate of PPF at par with EPF forthwith more
