1. Government Saving Bond
The central government issues 7.75 percent Savings Bond for 7 years. Currently, the FD rates of banks are decreasing, so this bond issued by the central government gives you a better option for long term investment. On these bonds you get interest for six months or at the time of maturity. This amount is taxable. Under the option of taking interest on maturity, you will get Rs 17.03 lakh in 7 years on an investment of Rs 10 lakh.
2. Post Office Schemes
Since January this year, the Reserve Bank of India has cut 135 basis points in policy rates. In the coming days, further cuts are being speculated. But, the good thing among all this is that for the December quarter, the government has decided not to change the interest rates on Post Office Small Saving Schemes. In such a situation, as an investor, you have the option to invest in them for a long period. Recently India Post has also given the facility of mobile banking, so that you can invest in them sitting at home.
PO Time Deposit at the post office is getting interest at the rate of 6.9 percent for 1, 2 and 3 years. At the same time, it is 7.7 percent for 5 years. For 5 years for senior citizens this interest rate is 8.6 percent. The interest rate on the National Savings Certificate is 7.9 percent.
