Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (from now on termed as SSY) is national-level small savings account scheme for the female child; it was initiated by the Government of India, which is the part of Beti Bachao Beti PadhaoCampaign. It is a girl child prosperity scheme provided with income tax benefits with a reasonable interest rate by the government. The main aim of this scheme is financial security for the girl child, which aids them with proper education and her marriage expenses. 

This scheme allows the guardians (parents or any other legal guardian) of a girl child to open the SSY account in any nearby post office or any commercial bank. They can open the account by choosing suitable investment plans and tenure at the interest rate of 7.6% per annum (current interest rate fixed by the government). 

Eligibility and Notable Features

  • Age: The age of a girl should be 0-10 years 
  • Status: Any Indian resident girl child
  • Lock-in period for maturity: 21 years. Investors have to make investments until 15 years from the date of account opening after the 15thyear,investors can choose not to make investments.
  • Interest rate: The interest rate (7.6% pa) (change every quarterly by the GOT) as mentioned above is calculated and compounded on a yearly basis. Interest will be added to the principal amount at the end of each financial year, and it is earned without tax.
  • Who is authorized to open the account: Only one account can be opened for one girl by her legal guardian in any commercial bank or post office. The account can be opened in the name of a female child who is below the age of 10 years, and the guardian maintains it until she attains the age of majority (18 years). Under this scheme maximum of two accounts can be allowed to open for only two girl children in a family, and an exception to this rule is the case of having twins or triplets girl childbirths, more than two account openings are allowed. 
  • Deposits: The initial deposit amount required to open the account is Rs. 250. The minimum amount to deposit in an account is Rs. 250, and the maximum is the multiple of Rs.50, i.e., Rs. 1.50 lakhs in a financial year. These deposits can be made at a time in a lump sum or can be made in a regular installment. The deposits can be continued maximum of up to 15 years from the date of account opening. Suppose in case the minimum amount is not credited into the account in any financial year. In that case, the account will become a defaulted account, and it can be resumed at any time before the competition of said 15 years by depositing Rs. 250 for defaulted years along with the penalty RS.50.
