can open a PPF account at any branch of the State Bank of India (SBI), its
associated banks, such as the State Bank of Mysore
or with some other nationalized banks. A PPF account can also be opened at any
head post office, selected grade post offices, or a General Post Office (GPO).
As a depositor, you may find it easier to open an account at a post office instead of a bank. Banks may be reluctant to open PPF accounts because they do not earn additional fees to handle these accounts. The money invested in the PPF is credited to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) the same day. You will be given a passbook where all subscriptions, accrued interest, withdrawals, loans etc. are recorded.
