Can PPF a/c of Resident Indian who before maturity became an NRI be extended beyond 15 years with contributions as usual?

You can’t extend your PPF Account post maturity (15 years) if you become an NRI before your account matures.


As per the PPF guidelines, NRIs aren’t eligible to open a PPF Account. However, if a Resident Indian becomes an NRI after opening the PPF Account, he/she can continue to subscribe to his/her account on a Non-Repatriable Basis. But, the account can’t be extended post maturity.
