It can be either one time or it can be in monthly instalments. The PPF investment is income tax exempted under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act."

Speaking on how the Form 16-H helps PPF account holders to earn while they sleep; Manikaran Singhal, Founder at easymoneying.com said, "Submission of form 16-H helps the investor to get PPF interest rate on the previous interest earned by the investor. One can extend the PPF account maturity for 5 years by submitting the form in the 15th year of the PPF account opening." Singhal said that an investor can open a PPF account as early as possible. by the age of 30 years, one becomes an earning individual who is conscious about one's future too. So, if someone opens a PPF account at 30 years of age then one would be able to invest for around 30 years in the same PPF account.
Assuming that someone opens a PPF account at 30 years of age — submitting Form 16-H thrice (15th, 20th and 25th year of PPF account opening), one would be able to maximise one's PPF account interest rate benefit. Let's keep PPF interest rate 2020-21 i.e. 7.1 per cent for the entire 30 years of investment, if someone invests Rs 12,500 per month or Rs 1.5 lakh per annum in one's PPF account, the Crorepati calculator suggests that one's PPF redemption money will be Rs 1,54,50,911 or Rs 1.545 crore.
During this 30 years of PPF investment, one would be getting net PPF interest of Rs 1,09,50,911 or Rs 1.095 crore while one's net investment in PPF account will be Rs 45,00,000 or Rs 45 lakh.
