Recently, I came across this thread of comments on Quora.
What perturbed me the most is the advise itself. How can you advise a young 22 year old person to invest in PPF without investing anything in Equities or Mutual Funds?
There is a lot of free advise out there but is not always the best one. PPF is a good investment option if you are only looking for security of your funds. It is not a good one if you want to grow your money or become rich.
Please have a look at this article if you really want to understand the pros and cons of investing in PPF.
