# SBI PPF Calculator

To calculate the maturity amount of your Public Provident Fund (PPF) account with SBI, you can use the following formula:

M = P x [(1 + i / n) ^ (n x t)]

Where,
M = Maturity value
P = Annual deposit amount
i = Annual interest rate (as fixed by the government)
n = Number of times the interest is compounded per year (usually, it is 12)
t = Number of years of investment

For SBI PPF accounts, the interest rate is usually updated every quarter by the government. As of April-June 2023, the interest rate is 7.1% per annum.

For example, if you invest Rs. 1 lakh annually in an SBI PPF account for a tenure of 15 years, the maturity amount can be calculated as follows:

P = Rs. 1 lakh
i = 7.1%
n = 12 (compounded monthly)
t = 15

M = 1,00,000 x [(1 + (0.071/12)) ^ (12 x 15)]
= Rs. 29,61,425 (approx.)

Therefore, the maturity amount of your SBI PPF account after 15 years of investment will be approximately Rs. 29,61,425.
