Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana: Everything to Know
 

The Sukanya Policy or Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana is a modest deposit plan for girls that was introduced as a part of Narendra Modi's "Beti Bachao Beti Padhao" initiative. It's for guardians or parents who have been blessed with a girl child and are seeking ways to prepare their child's financial future. The Sukanya policy enables parents or guardians to invest money in the policy and save for their female child's welfare in a methodical manner.
 

The policy is primarily intended for newborn girl children in order to make sure that they aren't left behind. According to the plan, it gives financial stability to a girl child until she reaches the age of 18.
 

The following are the highlights of the SSY:
 

Investment Value

₹250 (minimum value) and ₹1.5 lakh/annum (maximum value)

Present Yearly Interest Rate

7.6%/annum

Maturity Value

Differs based on the amount invested

Maturity Duration

21 years from the investment date


The plan includes a number of tax* benefits. For example, it gives an income tax* break under the 1961 Income Tax* Act (under Section 80C). Furthermore, the plan's maturity and return amount are tax*-free.
 

A PM SSY account can be opened at any authorised commercial bank branch or post office. However, the guardian of the girl child must remember that it can only be opened after the birth of a girl until she reaches the age of 10.
 

Features of Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana
 

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana has the following distinguishing features:
 

  • The account can be operated by the girl's guardians or parents until the girl child attains the age of 18.
  • When the girl child reaches the age of 18, she must run the account.
  • An individual can begin making SSY deposits with as little as ₹250, with a max deposit of ₹1.5 lakh every fiscal year. Deposits can be made in multiples of 100.
  • The PM SSY scheme has a deposition term of 15 years and a maturity period of 21 years.
  • The SSY account may be moved from a bank to any post office across the country. There are no fees associated with the account transfer.
  • In order to transfer the account from the post office to the bank and vice-versa, evidence of residential change is necessary. If someone fails to produce the proof, they must pay ₹100.
  • The deposit to the account may be made in the form of an online transfer, cash, demand draft, or cheque.
     
Eligibility of Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana
 

Let us look at the eligibility requirements for creating a Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Account:
 

  • Just the legal parents or guardians of a girl child may create an SSY account in her name.
  • The girl child's age must be below 10 when the account is opened.
  • The maturity term of the account is until the girl child becomes 21 years old. Individuals can begin investing in Pradhan Mantri Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana with as little as ₹250 and also can invest a maximum of ₹1.5 lakhs every fiscal year.
  • An individual can create just one account in the name of that girl child.
  • Just two SSY accounts are permitted per family, that is, one for each female child.
     
Interest Rate of Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (2022)
 

The Pradhan Mantri Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana investment can be utilised to financially ensure the female child's future. The interest rate on the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana is calculated quarterly and is regarded as one of the interest rates among numerous investment alternatives.
 

Presently, the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana policy's interest rate has been cut from 8.4 per cent to 7.6 per cent, and it's compounded annually. Interest is not due once the policy's tenure has expired or if the female child becomes a non-citizen or NRI (Non-Resident Indian).
