I opened (first) PPF account in Union Bank of India at City X-branch (I live in city-Y which is away from city-X by almost 3 hour travel by railways) where my dad used to work. Now he is retired so am not able to deposit amount in my PPF account as UBI does not provide operating PPF online, and I don't like to go to city-X branch from city-Y. So I opened another account at Axis bank which allow to operate PPF online (They didn't told me that I cannot open second account even after I told them that I already have one open). Now I realize that one cannot have more than one PPF account. Even worse, if I open 2nd PPF account, the 2nd account you have opened will be closed, and you will be refunded only the principal amount, not the interest as given 3rd point in this link
Also I heard that if I have to transfer PPF account from one bank to another, I have to get the cheque from my first bank and give it to second bank while opening PPF. However I have already opened 2nd PPF account.
So what should I do now? I want to operate my 2nd account not the first one. (I have very nominal amount in both accounts not exceeding 5K in total). How can I fix this?
