    I’m trying to transfer funds from my hdfc savings account to pnb ppf account but the transaction got declined saying that no such account exists.

    Bank has mentioned ppf in between my bank account no while adding my ppf account in the list of beneficaries in Hdfc ,I removed ppf and just mentioned the numericals (total no of digits being 17 in the account number)and in the type of account selected savings as there was no option for ppf

    where am I going wrong ? Can anyone who has transferred from hdfc to other ban ppf help me with this?

    1. You need to check with HDFC if you can do this ?

    Dear All,
    My Question is Somewhat similar to Ravi. I want to transfer my PPF account from ICICI bank to SBI for ease of maintenance and fund transfer. Can i Transfer PPF account across banks ? is it possible ? no one has been able to give me correct answer or procedure. SBI told to talk to ICICI and ICICI told me talk to SBI. i really don’t know if that’s doable!
    Please advise.
    I know i can transfer funds but i just need to move my PPF to SBI.


    1. Its definately possible . Just check with ICICI bank, they will guide you on this

    Better keep it in PNB. Still you can transfer through NEFT. You can’t do NEFT to ICICI PPF. You can transfer fund from ICICI Saving Bank account only (without repeat transfer option) and features provided on ICICI Internet Banking are not up to mark. Better you should opt SBI. You can read this post which describes drawbacks of ICICI PPF:

    how is the PPF withdrawn? by cash or cheque?

  7. Dear Ravi, First of all please update your PPF passbook with PNB & then contact the ICICI bank Branch where you want your account to be transferred. The ICICI people ‘ll do the necessary paper work & within next 1 months or so, the account ‘ll be transferred.
