Process to Check PPF Account Statement Online 

It is very easy to check and download the PPF account statement online and it can be accessed at any given time. However, PPF details can be checked online only if the account is opened with a bank. Currently, it is not possible to check the PPF account statement online if the account is opened in a post office. 

The step-by-step procedure to check the PPF account statement is mentioned below: 

  • The PPF account must be linked with the current/savings bank account. Most banks provide the option to open a PPF account in case you already have a savings/current account with them. 
  • Your bank account should have internet banking or mobile banking activated. 
  • By using your banking credentials, you will need to log in to your account via mobile or internet banking. 
  • Once you have completed your login procedure, you will be able to view PPF account details, account statement, account balance, etc. You will also be able to transfer funds to the PPF account, submit the PPF loan application, as well as set up standing instructions for the PPF account.  

PPF Withdrawal

While it is easy to check your PPF account statement online, the rules relating to withdrawal also must be kept in mind, lest you feel too tempted to withdraw your corpus.

  • Partial withdrawals can be made, from the start of the 7th financial year after the account has been created.
  • It is important to keep in mind that the timeframe taken into consideration is “financial year” which is from the 1st of April – to the 31st of March the next year.
  • Only one partial withdrawal will be allowed every financial year (starting from the 7th financial year on wards).

For example: If Mr. A has created a PPF account in January 2010, he will only be able to withdraw from his account from the 1st of April 2015. Mr. A’s PPF account was opened in January 2010, which means that it was opened in the financial year 2009 – 2010.

The number of financial years will be counted from the time the account was opened. It appears as follows:

Year 1 April 2009 – March 2010 (Account opened within this timeframe – in January 2010)
Year 2 April 2010 – March 2011
Year 3 April 2011 – March 2012
Year 4 April 2012 – March 2013
Year 5 April 2013 – March 2014
Year 6 April 2014 – March 2015
Year 7 April 2015 – April 2016 (Mr. A can begin withdrawing from his PPF account from this date)

Considering the above example of Mr. A, he will only be able to withdraw from his PPF account once every year, starting from April 2015.

The Percentage of Amount that can be Withdrawn

The PPF account attains maturity in 15 years from the date on which it was created.

  • 50% of the account balance as at the end of the year immediately preceding the current year, or,
  • 50% of the account balance as at the end of the 4th year, immediately preceding the current year.

As in the above example with Mr. A:

Year 1 April 2009 – March 2010 (PPF Account opened within this timeframe – in January 2010)
Year 2 April 2010 – March 2011
Year 3 April 2011 – March 2012 (This is the 4th year immediately preceding the year in which withdrawals are possible, assuming Mr. A opted for withdrawal option as soon as he legally could. Mr. A can withdraw an amount equal to 50% of this amount if it is lower than that of “Year 6”
Year 4 April 2012 – March 2013
Year 5 April 2013 – March 2014
Year 6 April 2014 – March 2015 (This is the year immediately preceding the year in which withdrawals are possible, assuming Mr. A opted for the withdrawal option as soon as he legally could. Mr. A can withdraw an amount equal to 50% of this amount, if it is lower than that of “Year 3”
Year 7 April 2015 – April 2016 (Mr. A can begin withdrawing from PPF account from this date)
