  1. Yes Definitely. But the NRI’s should have any NRI savings Account in India. Apart from Post Offices, UTI offers this facility I know. Maximum amount at present I’m not sure but earlier was Rs. 4 Lacs


  2. If the account is opened as resident Indians and subsequently if you are a NRI, you can still invest in PPF. I understand PPF scheme is also coming to a close sometime by end of this year, which means no new PPF account will be opned after next year, even if you are a resident indian.

    The max is Rs 60,000/year and that is the amount you can also claim IT deductions.
