No. PPF, or Public Provident Fund, was created by the government to spur investment and savings and allow citizens to park their money for their retirement. If it allowed account holders to withdraw the entire amount before its maturity, the entire point of saving for retirement would be lost.

Hence, one can only make partial withdrawals from his/her PPF account before the maturity date.

Additionally, experts advise against withdrawing money from PPF account until it’s the last resort because this is the fund that is expected to help you sail through your retirement without any financial crunch.
