it is not that people are unaware of this small saving device which also qualifies for IT exemption.But,as things stand,they are after making quick money & hence mostly are preferring the equity linked insurance schemes.They hardly realise that greed always leads to grief.There are thousands of investors who burnt their fingers by investing in equity linked savings-the classic example is those of the investors who paid sizable amounts with the insurance schemes run by the wings of commercial banks-the notable of which was ICICI-Prudential.In fact,as a concept & ideal also in all fitness of things investments in NSC is wise & serves the National Interests also since the amounts are held by the nation' exchequer for developmental purposes.
Interest is not tax free in true sense.Interest is added to your income and then exemption is available within overall limit of Rs.1 lac.It is useless for most of the salaried persons as the limit of 1 lac is utilised by investment in PF ,PPF, LIC, repayment of home loan etc. Please do not write such misleading articles which do not give full details of investment.

Let me tell you point blank, that there a lot of misguided people around. The Insurance agents call them over and over again, show them rosy figures and get their hard earned monies. It earns the insurance agent a huge commission and awards and the investor suffers.
Whereas there are such good schemes as NSC and PPF and people do not use these schemes to the full. These schemes are very benerficial which are never advertised since it does not pay much to the agents.
Interest on NSC is not tax free....Please bear in this mind....It can only be claimed as a part of Rs. 1 Lakh exemption available....But to do that you should first add that interest to your income and then claim that benefit...this is the correct position in law....beware of such plain comments....

I totally agree with ritesh. Even there are many Companies who do not give benefit of Interest on NSC u/s 80C as there is nothing specifically return on the interest part of NSC. You also need to first add that interest in you income.
I dont understand why I need to put 100000 for saving tax.. Some stupid tax saving sceme which gives only 8-10% pre year with min. lockin period of 3 yrs.. 100000 will easily get u 50% return in stock market.. even if r a dumbo.. I would rather pay tax than save in 3yr lockin period..

But you will pay 100000 to an insurance agent, who would deduct huge operating charges from the same, put some amount in the market and make merry of your hard earned money.

One Thing needs to be Highlighted is That PPF intrest Qualifies for rebate U/s 10 10 (d) Irrespective of any Lt and is in addition to The Lt Of 1 lac U/S 80 C. From Tax point of view NSC shd be bought for the unexhausted amt Of rs Sec 80 C After 6 Yrs PPF withdrawls can be used for household expenditure and equal amt invested out of Taxable income will further reduce i tax.
