    if somebody buys regular income certificates but deosnot cash the profit monthly for a whole year then he want to encashment his half of deposit how much will the center deduce the amount?

    If someone buys Special Savings Certificates of Rs.100,000 @11.67%PA and does not encash profit after 6 months, what profit will he get after a year (including profit on previous 6 month’s profit). Please advise, as there are staff at National Savings Offices, who are misguiding people by taking their blank signatures, and keeping the amount that people don’t know about i.e. profit on the reinvested amount.
    Thanks.

      Download Form D-6 or D-7 from National Savings website which ever is applicable to your case. Fill this Form in duplicate and send it through TCS or Registered Mail to the Officer Incharge of the National Savings Certer where your account or certificates are presently registered. Attach with this Form copy of you CNIC and Certificates/Passbook/Withdrawal Slip book. The Officer Incharge would transfer it to the city where you want. If you would go personally he would make objection this and that or more preferably would tell you transfer is not allowed, cancel and open the new one in new city. Don’t believe him. I have last month got mine transferred from Islamabad to Karachi.

      Transfer within the same city is also allowed but in this case you need to write what is the cogent reason of this transfer. You can explain this. Like you lived in Sector-A, now your home is in Sector-D etc.
