New Delhi: India Post offers a slew of investment options offering impressive returns along with safety on investments. For investors planning to secure their future, India Post offers a monthly income scheme (MIS) which ensures a regular pension after investing a lump sum amount. India Post also offers maturity benefits in the MIS scheme.
Post Office MIS scheme
The Post Office MIS scheme allows investors to invest their savings in multiples of Rs 1000 or Rs 100. However, one needs to invest a minimum of Rs 1000 in the scheme while investors can invest a maximum of Rs 1000 in the MIS plan.
India Post allows up to three investors to open a joint account in the MIS plan. However, the maximum money that investors can invest in a joint account under the MIS scheme is Rs 9 lakh.
Currently, India Post is offering a 6.6% annual interest on the MIS plan. Notably, investors get a simple interest in the plan, instead of the compound interest, which could be a major drawback of the investment scheme.
