    1. You can open PPF account offline in Post office or manybanks. Pls visit your nearest branch. You need to submit a Form and provide address & ID proof alongwith Initial deposit.
      If you donot have Saving account in that bank, they may insist on opening a Saving account as well.

    1. Hi Suresh, Have you received communication that PPF account is opened. Also, just make sure that they have opened under same customer ID.
      Normally it should be reflected in Net Banking and not in Savings Account.
