An individual can open only one account in his name either in the post office or in the bank and he has to declare this in application form for opening the account. Persons having a PPF account in the bank cannot open another account in the post office and vice-versa.

Only one account can be opened in one name. If two accounts are opened by the subscriber in his name by mistake, the second account will be treated as irregular account and will not carry any interest unless the two accounts are amalgamated with the approval of the Ministry of Finance (DEA). For this purpose the subscriber will have to write to the Under Secretary-NS Branch MOF (DEA), New Delhi-1 through the Accounts Office giving detail of each account.
