IDBI Bank Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana

When it comes to healthcare, education, and growth opportunities, girls in India are often ignored. To bring about a change in the minds of people, Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana was launched in 2015 by the Government of India as a part of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign. The campaign aims to address the issue of the declining gender ratio image as a national initiative jointly run by various ministries of the Government of India.

Further, the amount received at maturity, which includes the interest component, is exempted from income tax, thus enabling the girl to use the whole amount for her benefit.

  • Maturity Proceeds only to the Beneficiary: On maturity, the amount shall be payable only to the girl in whose name the account is held, thus ensuring that the money is used for her benefit only.

  • Flexibility in Transfer: Individuals may transfer the account from any authorized bank or post office in the country without hassles or delays.

The Process to Purchase the IDBI Bank Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme

IDBI Bank has a simple process for opening of IDBI Bank Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account: 

Step 1: One has to fill the account opening form and submit it to any of the authorized branches of IDBI Bank. Presently, the scheme does not allow for opening an account online. However, once the account is opened, one may schedule standing instructions online.

Step 2: One may deposit any sum between Rs.250/- and Rs.1,50,000/- in IDBI Bank Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana by cash, cheque, or demand draft. Since there is an upper limit on the investment, if one wishes to send one’s daughter abroad for further studies, this scheme may not be sufficient to build a corpus.

Step 3: Once the account is opened, a passbook is issued to the account holder. The passbook facility is free of charge. This passbook needs to be presented during each deposit and at the time of withdrawal.

Step 4: One may set the standing instructions either at any of the authorized branches of IDBI Bank or through internet banking for credit of deposit amount to the said IDBI Bank Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account.
