Can nri open an ppf account on his child who is a minor

answered on 11/09/2020

The answer is NO! To understand this, let’s consider these basic explanations:


1. Any NRI can’t open a PPF Account. NRIs aren’t eligible for opening one, even if they are doing it for a minor.

2. If the minor is also an NRI, he is too not eligible for a PPF account.

3. If the minor is a Resident Indian, he/she needs a Resident Indian Guardian to open his/her PPF Account.
