  2. Simply write an application addressed to the Officer Incharge of the National Savings Centre from where you purchased your certificates properly quoting the Registration Number asking him to “re-invest and treat as having been re-invested” your certificates “from the date of their maturity. Send this letter under Registered cover and save the receipt. On encashment you will received not merely profit for the original period but also for the extended re-invested period.

    1. First read their scheme attentively, understand those and then decide. There are are no savings “bonds” with the National Savings. There are prize bonds and saving certificates. I can not understand why people start jumping without first understanding the basic things.
