I am an income tax assessee. My question is Will I have to pay EXTRA TAX on the maturity of these investments?

The tax liability is of the primary depositor. However when the primary depositor dies the responsibility devolves upon the beneficiary which may be either the joint holder or the nominee. Therefore in your case now after your fathers death you are responsible to pay the taxes on the investments.
Yes you are required to pay the tax on the maturity of these instruments as per their treatment under the IT Act.
