  1. If you invest in FD, interest earned every year is to be added in your income.
    Bank will deduct tax at source if income is more than Rs.10000.

    Whereas in PPF interest income is tax free. what ever may be the amount of interest.

  2. If you invest in FD for tax saving benefit then you have to go with 5 Year Tax Saving Fixed Deposit
    Amount is locked in for five years

    TDS will be deducted when interest payable or reinvested per customer, per bank branch, exceeds Rs 10,000 in a financial year.

    If you are exempt from paying tax, you need to present Form 15G/H when you open a Fixed .Deposit and subsequently at the beginning of the following financial year.

    At the end of the financial year, the TDS will be deducted on the basis of interest accrued on the Fixed Deposit (s) even if this interest has not been credited.
