A post office savings account works similarly to a bank savings account in that the post office pays interest on the money in the account. An account can only be opened with cash, with a minimum of Rs 20 and no maximum limit. A non-cheque facility account requires a minimum balance of Rs 50. To use the cheque feature, you must have a minimum balance of Rs 500. The annual rate of interest on these savings accounts is 4%.
