    Hi yours is a very informative site. I enjoy NRE status by living 184 days out of India, my query is whether can I open PPF account in the name of my minor son.

    Dear Sir,

    What Shilpa has stated is correct. The PPF account can be opened by resident Indians only.

    Dear Ms Shilpa
    Thanks for the info. I wonder why the bank opened it inspite of the existing laws and knowing my status. I guess now I have to surrender it and will loose interest also. One more query can it be transferred to my wife's name as she is resident.

    I had the same issue, I am an NRI came back in holiday and opened PPF account for my Son. (I was unaware of the law). I have been depositing money in this account for past 5 years. I am now not sure what should I do . I have searched a lot about it and almost nobody have the answer for this. This PPF Article has almost 95% information but the answer to this is missing.
