I have  P&L A/C from received interest.

In which purpose should I spend the interest money?

Ideally speaking a person should never allow himself to be part of interest-based transactions, whether they work in his favour or not. The first step is to figure out a way in which you no longer receive benefits from interest.

If you have received interest money then you must give it away in charity without the intention of receiving rewards for doing so.
