Please Read more on Key Features

Who would be the Depositor?

Since this is an account dedicated to the girl child, a parent or guardian of the girl child could be depositor of the account.


Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Account

Age limit.

Any legal guardian or parents of a girl child can open SSY Account under this scheme anytime at the time of birth of the child till she attains an age of ten years.  As a matter of exception, any girl who attained an age of ten years within one year prior to announcement of this scheme would also be entitled to get this account opened under her name.

Documents required

The process of opening a SSY is quite simple and not much documentation is required in normal cases.  Here is a list of document a parent or guardian needs to take along when applying for an account under the scheme:

  • Certificate of Birth of the Girl child
  • Proof of Address of parents/guardians
  • Proof of identity of the parents/guardian

So, in all, you need just three basic documents and Account would be opened for your girl child. Please read more for Documents Required

Where to open

The government have authorized various financial institutions for opening of account under this scheme. You can open SSY accounts in these Authorized Banks and Post Office.

Can Account holder choose not to close account after maturity

The normal tenure of the account is up to the age of 21 years of the girl.  However, if she wishes to continue the account further, the maturity amount would grow at the same interest rate as per the scheme’s current rates.  The interest would be compounded on a monthly/yearly basis and would get credited to the account once the girl reaches an age of 14 years You will  Now not get any interest after the maturity Period as per updated rules.

Who is authorized to operate Sukanya Samriddhi Account?

As mentioned earlier in the article, the account could be opened by the parents of legal guardian of the girl child.  They would be operating the account until the girl child turns 10 years.  After 10 years, a girl child may operate her own account, if she chooses to.

Pre-Mature Withdrawal and Account Transfer in Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana

SSY has been launched across India and hence the account is transferable to any part of the country in situation of the account holder or the depositor moving to other places.

The scheme clearly envisages that a pre-mature amount of up to 50% is allowed for withdrawal after the account holder turns 18 year for the requirement of either marriage or higher education.

In case of marriage of the account holder after 18 years, the operation of the account may not be possible and hence this scheme offers closure of the account after marriage of the account holder.  In that case, an affidavit and relevant proof would be require stating that the girl is above 18 year of age and has been married after that. Read More for Withdrawal Rules

Updated :- Now this account be be closed after girl child turns 18.

Tax Benefits

Any amount that would be deposited in Sukanya Samriddhi Account would be exempted from tax under 80C of IT Act, 1961, till a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh.  The interest and maturity amount on this account is also exempted from income tax. Also the amount matured at the time to account closure would be completely tax free.

Please read more on SSY Tax Benefits

Advantages and Benefits

  • High and best in market fixed interest rates
  • Full tax benefits under 80C of Income Tax act
  • Maturity amount to be given directly to the girl child
  • Interest would be paid even after maturity of the account, if it is not closed by the account holder or depositor
  • No fixed number of deposits. The depositor can deposit a multiple of Rs 100 through out the year, with no limitation on number of deposits.  This is indeed a big advantage of the scheme.
  • Account can be transferred anywhere in India
  • Girl child / Account holder may operate her account, if she wishes to. This would give a lot of financial independence to the girl child as well.

Please read more on SSA Benefits

Shortcomings or Drawbacks 

  • Lock in period is a little on higher side
  • The account is limited for just two girl child of the parents
  • The scheme does not facilitate online transfer facility and that would be a discomfort for the IT savvy customers
  • No surety account the Rate of Interest in future

Please read more on Drawbacks of SSA

To conclude, the intent of the scheme is quite noble and would certainly provide a lot of financial independence to the girl child as well as their parents and guardians.  At the same time, considering the leverages and flexibilities it provides, we are sure that it would bring a lot of capital to the banks.  The only thing we would not be sure of as of now is how this scheme would be taken by the forthcoming budgets and government at the center.

  2. Its a gift from Our PM …but situation is still the same after 4 months ??? given bank name’s response is pathetic…they look at you as you are talking something they have never heard ..
    I my self visited many banks including big names as SBI, IDBI, ICICI but no response. leaving in metro, finding post office going there physically as & when you need to deposit an amount is a nightmare for a service man.

    the scheme really required some amendments.

      whether the account to be opened at the place where the person living i.e as per the address proof?

  3. Dear Team ,

    My Daughter Date of Birth is 24 January 2004 . Can I use SUKANYA SAMRIDDHI ACCCOUNT .
    Please suggest.


  4. yes she can open SSA account

  5. no currently this is not available.

  6. I want to open ssa account for my daughter. I am living in laxmi Nagar Delhi 110092 and visited many banks for the same but the don’t have any updates. Can any body suggest me in which public bank this scheme is started?

  7. good scheme but of no use as same not available in banks yet. how long do we have to wait for d scheme to come in banks. Is it that our PM after announcing d scheme has forgot and busy in traveling.

  8. have tried getting form from uco , syndicate bank .. but didnt get it .. they still havent heard the name of s.s.a .. if r.b.i has authorized them to open account since last two months than why arent they giving it ?

    • Sukanya Samriddhi scheme is some how taking time to get in place in the banks. You might have to wait for some time.

  9. I have personally verified from post office. It cannot be opened jointly. This is the biggest drawback of the scheme.

  10. Dear friends
    There is nothing to worry about opening an account for sukanya yojana.
    Just dial ICICI Bank near to your Home.Representative of the bank will reach your home and they provide all help to open an account.
    SBI is not interested in such CHOTTA accounts.
    And ICICI is well aware that such crores of such CHOTTA account will bring Thousands of Crore to their bank.
    All our public sector institutions like BSNL now stands for some one other than Indian public.

  11. Hello,

    I have one concern in case of PPF guardian parent & child PPF consider as one for calculating maximum deposit of 150000/-.

    Does this also added in this 150000/- limit.

    guardian father PPF+child PPF+SSA=150000/-.

    Please confirm!


    • Dinesh,
      you are little bit confused. Limit for 80c is 1.5 Lakhs in case of PPF (Both parents + Child). But both Parent (Guardian) can individually invest Rs 1.5 separately . Same applies with PPF + SSA

      • I have already opened SSY account for my child and deposited 1.2 Lakh in the account.

        1. Can my wife open another account and deposit equivalent amount for her IncomeTax purpose ??
        2. My father also wants to contribute to her future-planning, but is he eligible for tax claims ??

        Thank you so much.

  12. Thanks Mr PM for giving us this scheme which would set off the concern from the find.
    As I was going through various comments, I also found still many banks are not aware about the process. I approached by Union Bank of India branch , they said they dont have facility to open SSY account. Then I went to State bank, it took a bit of time and that too with approaching to bank manager. Moreover if you dont have savings accounts at State bank, they would ask you to open the same. In case if you already have and in their CIF , if your PAN card is registered then you ( Guardian) has to give another ID proof as under same ID, 2 accounts cant be open is SBI. Sometimes its too crazy in PSU but not have many options at present scheme can be open in PSU banks only.

  13. My daughter age is 7 yrs.I have already open will mature at the age 28 yrs of my daughter.I just wanted to know that if my daughter marriage will be held before 28 yrs of age then what amount shall i get? is that the total maturity amount or calculated upto that year.please let me confirm.

  14. Sir,
    I have visited most of the banks, Surprisingly none of the banks in DIMAPUR (NAGALAND) have any form or have any idea of the scheme.
    The same may be the case in the rest of INDIA…………..

  15. Last date to apply…

  16. Hi,
    I started SSA in State Bank of India.
    How to check already deposited SSA amount through online?
    Where can I find that paid amount?
    Is there any website separately to check the amount?

    • i will let you know in soon about the details in clear. You need to have SBI savings a/c netbanking and you have to link the SSY to it thats it. and ofcourse you can check the balance at SBI branch by showing your pass book.

  17. Sir,

    Can you any one can please help me i am having twin girls and i had opened a SSA in Bangalore Post Office but i have not given original names to my children me and my parents suggested some name but we want to change their names after one year can any one suggest us how to change their names from SSA

    • Did you contacted the post office officials?
      i know in one case who transferred the SSA a/c from Post-office to SBI has changed the DOB which was entered wrong at the time of opening at post-office.
      He brought original DOB certificate and corrected the wrongly printed DOB on pass book, and taken the new passbook which is in the style of SBI SAVINGS a/c passbook instead of SSY book. Try

    • Sir,

      I paid 40000 in first year but not capable to pay again more 10000 what i do , is thare any limit

  18. MY DAUGHTER BIRT DATE IS 11/07/2005

  19. I am agree with the comments of Depanjan Sengupta

  20. Sir I want to know any buddy say me when I will be deposit one thousand per year then my daughter will get 600000 after her 21st year is that right or wrong……????

  21. Am confused between mutual fund and ssy. As in 20 year run you can expect a good roi than the ssy.
    Please suggest

    • it depends on your risk appetite. SSY is a guarantee Mutual funds are not. Decision is yours.

  22. ssy scheme is too good specialy for girl whose person who know about MF & who have little earning like middile and lower class SSY scheme very good.
    Thanks to Modi ji, and All person who knows about this scheme clarify and motivate to open the account in Bank or Post Office and form can be download from Internet.

  23. I have birth certificate of my daughter in which her name is not mentioned, but parents name and date of birth and place of birth is mentioned. I also have certificate/photo identity card from school. Now Punjab national bank is asking to give name on birth certificate. But at the time of birth of my daughter , name was not mentioning on birth certificate in Uttar Pradesh. Please help to open the account. I am trying to open the sukanya account since last 4 months.

  24. I have opened an ssa in the post office having deposited Rs 1000. The post master has told me I have to deposite Rs 1000 per year for 14 yr as my child is now 6yr old. Then my child will be able to get Rs 500000 on maturity. Is it possible ? Actually how much and how many times I have to pay as premium in a year to get Rs 500000 on maturity ?

    • If you would deposit rs 1000 per year for 14 year then at the time of maturity i mean after 21 years you will get around rs 50 thousand and not 5 lakhs. If you would deposit rs 12000 per year for 14 years then after 21 years you will get around rs 6 lakhs.

  25. I have two daughters .first was born on September, 05, 2003 and the other was born on April,05, 2005. Can I open SSY in their names?

    • your first daughter have crossed the eligibility. You can open PPF account for her and your younger one can enjoy SSA

  26. Hi

    Will the amount received at the time of maturity be TAXABLE.
    As in PPF the maturity amount is not taxable.

    What are the conditions at that time.


  27. Hi Sir

    I have opened a PPF account under my name and investing 150000 every year. Interest is tax free on this investment. if I open this SSA account for my daughter, is interest on SSA deposit will be clubbed in my income OR it would be tax free?

  28. I have opened SSA in post office. Can I transfer my amount through my iob netbanking?

    • Post Office does not offer this facility.

    • First you can transfer the SSY a/c to BANK then you can do online payment / cash deposit as you wish.
      its good to transfer as per my concern. Contact post-office to transfer your a/c.

  29. I have opened SSAJ in post office for my younger daughter with myself the co-account holder.Can I transfer it to my wife so that she gets the tax benefit.

    • you should be able to do this. But i am not sure about the process. It would be great if you could let us know the process for future users.


  30. Can anyone say how to deposit cash for SSY ?
    Because we HARDLY opened account of SSY in BOI but bank executives stil are confused and cant say properly how to deposit cash.

  31. Have few doubts. Already opened an SSA a/c in SBI bank & transferring amounts in it through online banking. Want to know if someone can deposit the entire 1.5 lac in one month. If so, whether interest will be calculated for the entire amount throughout the year? Secondly If one tries to deposit more than 1.5 lac in same year, whether system will allow. If it is possible, guess no interest will get calculated for the additional amount.

    • Yes you can deposit rs 1.5 lakhs in a shot. Yes interest would be calculated for entire amount throughout the year. Yes system will allow you to pay more then rs 1.5 lakhs a year. But you wont get the interest on the surplus money.

  32. May we deposit varied amount in account for different year.(min 12000 per yr and max 1.5 Lacs per yr)
    e.g. 1st year-12000
    2nd year-50,0003rd year-30000 and so on……….?

    plz let em know

    • Yes you can choose the amount that you want to deposit each financial year.You can also deposit money in any denomination for any number of times. The only constraint is the first deposit to every financial year should be at least rs 1000 and total contibution should not exceed rs 1.5 lakhs.

  33. In this scheme a depositor have to deposit upto 14 years and maturity period of this scheme is 21 years from the date of opening of account. But in the mean time if the girl child get married. The account will be closed after marriage.

    • at the time of marriage you have the option of closing the account. If you want you can continue.

  34. Today i opened my daughter’s SSA account in Post office. In birth certificate her name is Km. Shiya but in her school and aadhaar card and other record her name is Shyamla. my question is will it creat a problem at the time of claiming the amount? will it create problem in claiming tex benefits?

  35. If I want to open one another SSA account in another bank or post office with the correction in her birth certificate Will I GET THE 1000 rupees back that i deposited today while opening account?

  36. I have a litle doubt regarding the maturity age….the maturity age 21yrs is for whom. Is it when the girls attains the age of 21 or the policy runs for 21 yrs. Please suggest


  37. totally agree with Mr Patil. we are unable to deposit via e-transfer.

    • we have enrolled our 2 daughters to this scheme in SBI, bangalore without any hickups and also started paying through internet every month.

      Infact we have taken the online internet banking/checking of the accounts from the bank, we check the account on regular basis.

      • Hi Guys,

        You all are right. However, just to update you it has now started in SBI and I believe it’s there in ICICI bank as well. You can try any of those two to get things started..

      • Hi Chetan,

        I need one more info in this regard. Lets say if both the parents deposit 50K each, can both of them show the amount in 80C . If they do it online, what proof we get to show it later.

  70. Hello Sir,Please suggest me in through which service i should open the Account? based on Safety,issues free & comfortable transactions?

    Post office or SBI?

    • it depends on you. I personally feel SBI is a better option just because I can deposit SSy money online.

  71. i have opened SSY accounts in the name of my two girl childs yesterday at State bank of Travancore. i am having an SB account with the same bank. i am planning to do online transfer to my children’s SSY accounts for future payments. please advise how can i view the account details of SSY accounts. will the bank issue user id and password for viewing purpose. bank officials are unable to answer this as they are not familiar with this SSY accounts. please help.

  72. My daughter, born on June 25, 2005, was declared ineligible for opening up of account under Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme at IDBI Bank, Subhash Nagar Branch, Gurgaon because she has attained the age of 10 years on 25.06.2015.

    How it is not possible for a girl child to open an account under the above said scheme who is born on 25.06.2005 and possible for a girl child born prior to her between 2 December, 2003 and 1 December, 2004 (as per RBI Notification)?

    It clearly implies that all girl child born after 2 December, 2003 are eligible for opening up of an account under the above said scheme.

    1. Could anyone pl. clarify the RBI Notification w.r.t age limit for opening up of such account.

    2. Pl. specify the birth date on / after and on / before which girl child will become eligible or ineligible?

    3. Also let me know whether my daughter is eligible for opening an account under the above said account or not.

    4. Further, is it necessary to have an account at the concerned Branch because SBI Bank, New Colony Branch is opening the said account provided I have an account at their Branch. Pl. Clarify.

    For last 2 months I am trying to find clarification w.r.t the age eligible for opening up of a/c under above said scheme. Repeated complaints through email, detailed conversation with good number of customer care executives and even bank officials at the branch itself have all fallen on deaf ears and it seems no one at IDBI is bothered or interested in resolving the issue.

    A simple & timely clarification will be highly appreciated

    • Hi Rohit,
      I am not able to find any evidence of this in the government site. Please lock an email complaint in SBI bank regarding this. Ask them for an email stating that your girl child is not eligible.

  73. Dear Sir,
    Please tell me, How can check the account status of Sukanya yojana on line?

    With Regards
    Vinod Jain

  74. This is to thank The Honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi Ji.

    This scheme is very useful to every father who cares about his daughter’s future. I too worried about my saving’s because I don’t have that habit. Once I heard about this scheme I have changed my mind & started saving for my daughter.

    Once again I thank Mr. Narendra Modi Ji

  76. I opened 2 SSA accounts in the Union Bank of India, Raja Rajeshwari Nagar,Bangalore branch. even though they are not an authorised branch, the staff helped me open the accounts by sending the required forms to their vijaya nagar branch. the only drawback is that UBI does not have an option to pay online unlike ppf.

  114. Sir,

    1. After joining the SSA, how will the parent avail the tax benefit ? Is it through the bank statement of the SSA account or the transfer statement of parent’s account to the SSA account of kid.
    2. If the parent’s account is a joined account, how will the transfer be treated for individual tax benefit (wife and husband) ?


    • 1) passbook is preferred option.
      2) In the case of any joint account since the PAN card of the primary has been updated in bank so benefit can be availed by the primary account holder.

  120. hi…
    after maturity..withdrawn of amount should be joint..girl &parent.permit giving only to girl..thereshould be misuses by her..large amount.
    so amend withdrawn rules to giving joint permission.

    • I am also in support of this comment of a parent. In Sukanya Samridhi Yojana, all the slient features and objectives are good. It is also prospective and will support the parent as well as child during their future needs but only thing is that if the girl will misuse the fund or amount saved for her future, then what will be the remedy ? So, operation of the account should be jointly performed by the parent and the girl. If the teen aged girl is brain washed by somebody she can use the same amount for any other use for what it is not saved by her parent even her future again will become uncertain. So, there should be an override condition stipulated by Govt. or the authority to curb that misuse and prevent misuse of savings for the needs.

  121. Today I walked on to the United Bank of India, Mayabazar Branch, DTPS, DVC, Durgapur- 713207 to open SSY A/c for my twin daughers of age 3 yrs.
    But the official there told me that I should have A/c in their Branch, then only they can open SSY A/c for my daughters.
    I hav had to come back from the branch.
    I knew there is no any condition like this. Is there ??
    If no, Govt. should do the necessary steps against the bank officials to stop making customers fool and harrasing them and stop making own rules illegally.
    Today many bank officials think the bank their own shop, that I experienced.

    3. How do I deposit money in SSY account ? Can I simply add that account as a registered payee in my existing ICICI bank account and then transfer money through online transfer OR is there any alternate way ?
    4. What document shall I produce to claim it for Income Tax ? Do I receive any Tax certificate OR I’ve to submit the passbook copy OR online bank statement ?
    5. Is there any way to get a Tax document through online which I can produce for Income Tax ?

    Please give your valuable suggestions.


    • 1) You can ask for SSY passbook from them.
      2) Bank can help you with this.
      3) you can transfer money in SSY in any form or method
      4) passbook is sufficient
      5) this is not possible.

  171. Hi, I would like to open an SSY account for my sister daughter. Is am i eligible for tax exemption ?

  172. Hi,

    This is a great initiative and I thanks for the same.
    I have two queries,
    1) Is the rate of interest changing every year?
    If so, then can it reduce also after we have put in money?

    Also is it mandatory to open a SB account in the bank you are opening SSA or you can deposit money via another SB account as well?

    • 1) Interest rate may or may not change
      2) Yes you can reduce or increase your money

      • Thanks for the revert on the first question regarding the interest amount.
        What are the primary reason for the change in rate of interest?

        my other query is –do we need to have a saving bank account in the same bank where we are opening a Sukanya Samridhi account or it is not mandatory?

        • 1) there are many reasons for government to consider for interest rate which are beyond the scope of this blog
          2) You do not need to have a savings account in bank to open ssy.

They also say that even under 80c only 1,50,000 is exempted, so investment of more than that does not arise
