PPF Investment for wife

My wife is housewife and she does not have any income but i files ITR for her every year. Now i am planning to open PPF account for her and the queries are:

1: Can i show this investment in her ITR under 80C?

2: Final PPF corpus will be TDS free after 15 years?

Hi I. Yes, you can show this investment in her ITR under sec 80c 2. Yes, the final corpus received would be tax free on maturity
