The government on Thursday kept interest rates on small savings schemes, including NSC and PPF, unchanged for the third quarter of 2021-22 amid the COVID-19 pandemic and a level of inflation raised. The Public Provident Fund (PPF) and the National Savings Certificate (NSC) will continue to bear an annual interest rate of 7.1% and 6.8%, respectively.
