Unless government can offer other savings incentives which result in taxable benefits for the taxpayer, yes I do believe that these interest exemptions should be increased year on year. The increase should however take into account the real rate of return on similar investments, not only limited to cash returns, and not the usual inflation related bracket creep. Taxable savings benefits should be there to encourage savings not just move with inflation.
