The Ministry of Finance kept the same interest rates available for the quarter ending September 2022. KVP will thus provide a 6.9% yearly compound interest rate. Investors should be aware, nevertheless, that the government modifies the interest rates of Post Office Small Savings Accounts on a quarterly basis. A minimum investment of Rs. 1000 and deposits in multiples of Rs. 100 with no maximum limit are required to invest in KVP for a period of 124 months (10 years and 4 months).

Therefore, if you stay invested for the entire duration without taking any withdrawals, your money will double thanks to the compounding effect. Therefore, if you invest Rs. 5 lakhs at a 6.9% interest rate, you would receive Rs. 10 lakhs at maturity, which will include the total interest earned of Rs. 5 lakhs. The investment return would be 1 Cr if an investor invested 50 lakh in KVP over the duration of 124 months.
