The interest rate or the rate of assured return

The government mentioned, the Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY) will provide an assured rate of return of 7.40% p.a. payable monthly (that is equivalent to 7.66% PA). You will get the benefit of the same interest rate that was fixed at the time of purchase for the entire 10 years policy term, even if the rate changes later. However, the interest rate has been changed by the government now. Earlier, this scheme was used to fetch 8.00% PA interest payable monthly. So, although the scheme will give you an assured income, the interest rate is being reduced now. However, it certainly gives better interest than few other investment opportunities.
