  2. Hello

    Im an overseas pakistani living in the UK. I’m interested in investing money in the Pakistan National Savings Sceme.

    I have a couple of questions.

    1) How safe are these schemes in terms of deposit guarentees.( Can they go bust and not pay back even though they are the government)

    2) What is the safest way of depositing funds into the schemes.

    Any help appreciated.

    National Saving Schemes are very safe investment, no risk involved. Buying certificsates or opening an account is very easy, just need to visit National Saving Center, pay money and buy certificates.

    Please click below to visit state bank of Pakistan’s website for detailed information. The charts are older but can give you the hint also.
