But you have to give this information to the institution with your account ie bank or post office.

If you do not give the extension within one year, then you cannot give new contribution again. Then you will get interest according to your balance till you withdraw the amount. You can also withdraw some money in a financial year. If you continue with the contribution then you will have to fill Form H for this and it is mandatory. Otherwise, you will be considered irregular and you will not get interest on your new contribution as well as you will not get tax deduction under 80C.
