The small savings schemes’ interest rates are assessed and revised by the government on a quarterly basis, and the methodology to determine the revision in rates is proposed by the Shaymala Gopinath Committee. The committee has suggested that the interest rates for these schemes should range from 25 to 100 basis points above the yields of the government bonds.

The last time that the rates were hiked was for certain small savings schemes and post office schemes was on December 31, 2023, when the rates were increased. However, the interest rates for PPF were kept unchanged for the previous quarter, at 7.1 percent.
