Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana – Tax-Free Small Savings Scheme for a Girl Child

by Shiv Kukreja on March 3, 2015

This post is written by Shiv Kukreja, who is a Certified Financial Planner and runs a financial planning firm, Ojas Capital in Delhi/NCR. He can be reached at skukreja@investitude.co.in

“Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” is the mantra with which Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana on January 22nd this year. Later on, the government issued a notification to allow 80C exemption equal to the amount invested in the scheme up to Rs. 1,50,000, which is also the maximum amount one can invest in this scheme in a financial year.

Now, the Finance Minister in his budget speech has proposed to make the interest component as well as the maturity proceeds as tax-free. I think this proposal has made this scheme to be the best small savings scheme available to the Indian investors. Yes, even better than our golden scheme of Public Provident Fund (PPF). So, what is this scheme all about? Let’s check.

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana is a small savings scheme which can be opened by the parents or a legal guardian of a girl child in any post office or authorised branches of some of the commercial banks. The girl child is called the “Account Holder” and the guardian is called the “Depositor” in this scheme.

Before I compare this scheme with PPF, let us first check the important features of this scheme.

Salient Features of Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana

Who can open this account? – Parents or a legal guardian of a girl child who is 10 years of age or younger than that, can open this account in the name of the child. For initial operations of the scheme, one year grace period has been provided to make it 11 years of age. With this one year grace period in age, which is valid up to December 1, 2015, you can get this account opened for a girl child who is born between December 2, 2003 and December 1, 2004.

9.1% Tax-Free Rate of Interest – This scheme has been flagged off with a 9.1% rate of interest, higher than that of PPF which stands at 8.7%. But, this rate is not fixed at 9.1% for the whole tenure and is subject to a revision every financial year like all other small savings schemes, including PPF.

Prior to the budget announcement, 9.1% annual return seemed unattractive, but not anymore, as it has been made tax exempt now. Interest amount gets added to your balance amount in the account and compounded either monthly or annually, as per your choice. Monthly interest compounding will be done only on your balance amount on completed thousands.

Duration of the Scheme – The scheme will mature on completion of 21 years from the date of opening of the account. If the account is not closed on maturity after 21 years, the balance amount will continue to earn interest as specified for the scheme every year. In case the marriage of your daughter takes place before the maturity date i.e. completion of 21 years, the operation of this account will not be permitted beyond the date of her marriage and no interest will be payable beyond the date of marriage.

Deposit for 14 years only – Though the scheme has a duration of 21 years, you are required to make contributions only for the first 14 years, after which you need not deposit any further amount and your account will keep earning the interest rate applicable for the remaining 7 years.  

Premature Closure – The account can also be closed prematurely as your daughter completes 18 years of age provided she gets married before the withdrawal. As the maximum permissible age of the girl child is set as 10 years, the scheme effectively carries a minimum duration of 8 years i.e. 18 years of exit age – 10 years of entry age.

Partial Withdrawal – It is also allowed to withdraw 50% of the balance standing at the end of the preceding financial year, but only after your daughter attains the age of 18 years. So, effectively it has a complete lock-in period of at least 8 years, before which you cannot take out any money for any purposes.

Minimum/Maximum Investment – You need to deposit a minimum of Rs. 1,000 in a financial year to keep your account active. Failure to do so will make your account inactive and it could be revived only after paying a penalty of Rs. 50 along with the minimum amount required to be deposited for that year, which currently stands at Rs. 1,000.

Also, you can invest a maximum of up to Rs. 1,50,000 in a financial year. You can make your contribution to this account in as many number of times as you like.

How many accounts can be opened? – You can open only one account in the name of one girl child and a maximum of two accounts in the name of two different children. However, you can open three accounts if you are blessed with twin girls on the second occasion or if the first birth itself results into three girl children.

Nomination Facility – Nomination facility is not available in this scheme. In an unfortunate event of the death of the girl child, the account will be closed immediately and the balance will be paid to the guardian of the account holder.

Documents Required – Birth Certificate of the girl child, along with the identity proof and residence proof of the guardian, are the mandatory documents required to open an account under this scheme. You can approach any post office or authorised branches of some of the commercial banks to get this account opened.

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana vs. Public Provident Fund (PPF)

Budget 2015 has made this scheme quite attractive for the investors. If you’ve already exhausted your PPF deposit limit, want to save for your girl child’s marriage or higher education and have spare money to invest in this scheme, then this scheme provides you one more excellent avenue of safe investment with high returns. You can wait for the next financial year’s rate of interest to get announced anytime this month, if it remains higher than PPF, just go for it.

thanks for sharing this information.
I am just wondering if govt. is keeping money between 14-21 years, not it would fetch less money than combination of RD(0-14years)+FD(14-21 years).
also there will be no strings like male child, infinite renewals ( 5 years terms).would be great if you can just compare with RD +FD combination in the light of tax implications.thanks.

Shiv Kukreja March 3, 2015 at 10:44 AM

Thanks Omprakash!
No, the government is not keeping your money between 14-21 years for free. It is going to pay interest for these 7 years as well. No combination in fixed income investments can yield better than this Exempt-Exempt-Exempt (EEE) investment. This is the best guaranteed fixed income investment available right now.

HEMANT March 3, 2015 at 9:48 AM

So basically if a girl child is above 10 years,then no point in looking at this scheme ? Correct ?

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 3, 2015 at 10:49 AM

Yes, that’s correct. But, there is a grace period of 1 year till December 1, 2015, which makes it 11 years of age.

Reply

Santanu March 3, 2015 at 9:52 AM

The best part of this scheme is that this is also a EEE scheme. Means one can invest in this scheme without worrying about future taxation. But interest rate could be a worry, whether the high interest rate will be able to sustain for long term or not.
I have visited Post office and few banks recently to know where exactly they are aware about Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme. The fact is only post-office is allowing to open this account. Banks don’t have much clarity about this scheme. Anyway this is beginning, we will see many changes in coming days.
Could be another biggest hit Govt scheme like PPF in coming years.

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 3, 2015 at 10:58 AM

I agree with you Santanu, this scheme has the potential of becoming another popular scheme like PPF. I think the government will try to keep its interest rate equal to that of PPF. I think the government will also try to keep its real rate of interest above 2%, over and above the rate of inflation.

Definitely a great scheme aimed at the Girl Child. Govt should work to make all sections of society aware of it.In lower sections we see people making gambles on chit funds for their girl child’s future, this is a good and safe alternative.

Any clarity yet on which are the banks mandated to open the Sukanya Samridhi account? I visited SBI today to enquire and they aren’t yet opening the account.

Further, the grace period of 1 year is available right upto 1 Dec 2015 correct? for children born on on after 2 Dec 2003 which is 11 years as on the date of announcement of the scheme which is 2 Dec 2014. Is my understanding correct?

Which means that for a child born on say, 17 Jan 2004, I can still open the account even on 1 Dec 2015 even though she may be well beyond 11 years. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Hi,
I am working on one more post having the list of banks where you can open this account. The post will also have the application form and the circular of this scheme.

The language of the circular suggests that this account can be opened in the name of a girl child who is born on or after December 2, 2013, irrespective of her age whether she is below 10, 11 or even 11+. Further clarity will be provided by the finance ministry.

This scheme has got all the ingredients to get the required popularity on its own and you’ll definitely have many takers for this scheme. Though I think the government is not required to market this scheme, I am confident that the government will surely play its role to give this scheme its due credit and poor people will get its benefits.

sundararajan March 4, 2015 at 1:09 AM

With all respect, I understand a scheme is required for girl’s child marriage. But in my mind, education is the higher priority. Is there a similar scheme for girl’s /boy’s education? Especially the cost of higher education is sky high now and it is growing more than the actual rate of inflation. Hope we get a scheme for education as well.

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 4, 2015 at 9:20 AM

50% of the corpus could be used for any purpose as a girl child attains 18 years of age. So, this amount could well be used for higher education. Expecting so many schemes from government for different purposes is like asking for too much.

Clarity is still required as far as NRI/OCI investment is concerned. So, you’ll have to wait some more time for your investment. As NRI investment is not allowed in PPF, I am assuming that the government will not allow it for this scheme as well.

Dear Mohammad,
This scheme got announced in July 2014, notified in January 2015, got 80C exemption in February and got announced as tax-free in the budget. If even after such a long time the scheme has not started, then when can anybody expect the scheme to get started. Nithya mentioned in her comment above that her father-in-law got an account opened sometime back which means that this scheme is already active.

under 80C, but if we deposited 150000/-each (300000/-) shall we get benefit of Tax free Interest and maturity amount in both the acounts.
please clarify correct position.

Yes, you’ll get tax-free interest and maturity amount in both the accounts. In fact, the maturity proceeds in Sukanya Samriddhi Account will be given to the girl child and it will be tax-free for her.

Very nice scheme & good initiative by H’ble PM Modi.

To boost “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao”, along with a/c holder contribution, government should also contribute the equivalent amount (as done in EPF schemes)

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 4, 2015 at 4:51 PM

Yes, it is a great scheme. EPF is for the employees & not for the general public, an employer contributes to EPF and not the government. I think the government should focus only on efficient implementation of its policies and generation of jobs/income for its citizens. We do not require subsidies/contribution from the government for our day to day living. God has given all of us enough opportunities to move our bodies and earn our livelihood.

Hi Harish,
It is not possible to calculate the maturity amount in this manner as it’ll really depend on the rate of interest and time of your investment every year. But, based on certain assumptions and 9.1% rate of interest, it should be Rs. 2,63,025 after 21 years.

Hi Shivika,
You’ll have to provide these documents to open an account – Birth Certificate of the girl child and the identity proof & residence proof of the guardian for KYC process. KYC stands for Know Your Client.

If the government doesn’t allow NRIs/OCIs to open this account, then I think you might not be able to get through the KYC process for residents.

Hey Shiv,

Thanks a lot for the information.

One last thing, if I intend to invest 60K annually for 15 yrs, is this scheme a better scheme or equity option s better.

Shiv Kukreja March 5, 2015 at 9:25 PM

It varies from individual to individual. Personally, I’ll opt for equity mutual funds. Thanks!

Dear Shiv
Hope you are doing good. I can see your good work is continuing . I am a NRI but planning to relocate back to India this year. My family is still resident Indian. My question is after shifting back how much time i need to wait before opening an account for my daughter?? Also, is it possible for a resident Indian To have a PPF a/c for self, PPF a/c for Child & this samridhi a/c for child and contribute around 4.5 lakh annually (tax deduction of only 1.5 is OK).
Regards
Kunal

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 6, 2015 at 9:04 PM

Thanks Kunal,
A resident Indian can open this account anytime he/she wants. So, when your residential status changes back to that of a Resident Indian, you can open this account. For PPF, the total amount that you can invest in your account and your child’s account both put together is only Rs. 1.5 lakh. Additionally, you can invest Rs. 1.5 lakh in this scheme. So, total Rs. 3 lakh, instead of Rs. 4.5 lakh as planned.

Hi,
Interest rate is subject to a change every year on April 1. However, I have no idea whether any of the political parties would change the terms of this scheme in future or not. Personally, I don’t think they would do any such thing. Rest it is your decision.

This scheme is for 21 years (and not that the girl child attains 21 years of age). So, if you start it today, it will run till March 2036 or till the date when your daughter gets married, whichever is earlier. Also, maturity amount is not fixed, it will vary as per your contribution, timing & the rate of interest.

Good Morning, I thank you very much for your efforts in improving financial literacy for the people of India.

I would liket o have clarification on few points wrt SSA as per the wordings mentioed in Notification.

1- “Deposits in an account may be made till completeion of fourteen years, form the date of opening of the account. ”
My daughter has completed six yeras it means i can deposit the amount till she complete 20 (14 +6) years of age. It means If I will open account in April 2015, I can deposit till Mar 2029. It does not have any relation to the completeion of 14 years of age of my daughter.

2- “The account shall mature on completion of twenty one years from date of opening of the account. ”
It means If I will open account in April 2015 the account will mature in Mar 2036. It does not have any relation to the completeion of 21 years of age of my daughter.

Plz clarify.

3. I am based in Janak Puri, Delhi. I have visited all SBI, PNB and BOB branches nearby but everyone said they are not authorised.
4. Only Post Office is opening the accounts.

Government is launching couple of schemes but on the ground level, no support providing to the people. They should launch some helpline no. to address concerns.

Hi Mani,
1. Rs. 4.5 lakh is the maximum amount you can contribute in three of your SSA accounts.
2. Calculating the exact amount is not possible, so it is only a tentative figure which can be calculated.
3. Yes, you can open a PPF account for your son. But, maximum contribution in PPF is limited to Rs. 1.5 lakh for son & the guardian.
4. We do not entertain individual personal queries here on this forum. We provide financial planning services to interested individuals – http://www.onemint.com/services/

Santosh March 12, 2015 at 8:39 AM

Hi Shiv, nice presentation and of course it is one of the best saving scheme. As on date, since Banks are not opening this (I am more interested to open in bank for easy in online transfer), I will try to open in nearest post office and may be in future, Govt may come up with bank-post office transfer facility.

I am searching but could not get the answer on “insurance protection”. What happens if the depositor (suppose the sole earning member of the family) dies and the family unable to continue the scheme? Will the Govt waive the future payments or the account will be inactive in the due course? I think the “inactive” answer is correct?

Second, I feel, this scheme runs like PPF and not like RD. I mean to say, in RD (Recurring Deposit), we commit to pay a fix amount per month whereas in PPF, there is no monthly commitment and the depositor is free to deposit amount of his choice subj to min of 500 and max of 150,000 in a year. To keep PPF account active, one has to do minimum 1 deposit in a year and subject to minimum of Rs. 500/- yearly deposit. If this is the case also in Sukanya account, I dont think Death of sole earning member causes any problem. Family can continue one deposit (1000/-) in a year and keep the account active.

Am I right in my thought?

Regards
Santosh

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 12, 2015 at 10:05 AM

Thanks Santosh,
1. Migration facility will definitely be there once the scheme becomes fully operational.
2. There is no insurance protection clause in this scheme and the government will not waive any future payments. Under special circumstances, like death or medical support in life-threatening diseases etc., you can make a request to prematurely close the account and withdraw the amount.
3. This scheme is very much similar to PPF. You can keep the account active by depositing a minimum of Rs. 1,000 in a financial year. However, in case of guardian’s death, I think you’ll have to get the guardian’s name changed in the records of the post office/bank branch.

If you do not deposit a minimum of Rs. 1,000 in this account in a financial year, then there is a penalty of Rs. 50 for each year you skip to deposit.

Mr. Dinesh, your calculation is correct. Rs. 1,092 should be the first year’s interest if you deposit Rs. 12,000 in the beginning of the year and rate of interest is 9.10%. So, why are you asking that where are you getting wrong? You are nowhere wrong.

Hi Shiv,

Thanks for your efforts on this forum. Today’s TOI edition carried an article on the SSY scheme where they say, the maximum cap is 1.5L per financial year per family of 2 children. I believe this is not correct because it would then render the cap of 2 accounts for 2 children meaningless. Please clarify if it is 1.5L per account upto a max of 2 accounts which means one could deposit upto 3L though the 80c limit would still be only 1.5L.
Further, have any banks started opening accounts as on date. Any info on this?

So, I think what I have mentioned holds correct. As you rightly mentioned, Rs. 1.5 lakh split between two daughters will leave the maturity value significantly insufficient for meeting their future education & marriage expenses.

Hi Sir,

You have mentioned that in case of daughter gets married before completion of 21 years of opening the account, operation of this account will not be permitted beyond the date of her marriage and no interest will be payable beyond the date of marriage.

Suppose my daughter age is 9 years now and i am opening the account, and she gets married at the age of 25, will the account be closed after 16 years? and how will they know when my daughter gets married? Do we need to submit marriage certificate?

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 16, 2015 at 1:23 PM

Yes, the account will have to be closed as your daughter gets married after 16 years.Also, I am not sure what you would be required to produce as marriage proof, but I think a declaration from the girl child or the marriage certificate or wedding invitation card would work as a proof.

1. My Aadhar card address is in Bihar but i am living with family in orissa(by work), If i open a ssa in orissa post office then in future , can i transfer this account to my native place(bihar)???
2. can i invest 1.5 lakh each of my 2 daughters ssa a/c?total= 3 lakh??
4.In the ssa post office form- what should i write in 1st depositor column — my name or daughter name??

1. Yes, you can transfer it to your native place in future.
2. There is no clarity in this matter. I am assuming it is Rs. 3 lakh (Rs. 1.5 lakh for each girl child).
3. “Your daughter’s name” followed by “under guardian” “your name”.

If two accounts are opened in the name of two daughters, what is the maximum limit on investment ? Is it 1.5 lakhs for each account or 1.5 lakhs total for both accounts ?

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 18, 2015 at 12:17 PM

As per the wordings of the Government Notification – “the total money deposited in an account on a single occasion or on multiple occasions shall not exceed one lakh fifty thousand rupees in a financial year”.
Source: http://www.indiapost.gov.in/dop/Pdf%5CCirculars%5Csukanya_samriddhi_SB_Order_2.pdf

So, it seems that Rs. 1.5 lakh is for a single account. For two accounts, it should be Rs. 3 lakhs.

Hi Shiv ji,

Greetings!

I am planning to invest 15000-18000 per year and. Lets assume if its 18000 per year and I need to pay the premium for next 14 years. What will be the maturity amount I can withdraw on 21 years completion?

-Natesh

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 18, 2015 at 3:53 PM

Hi Natesh,
Please check this post for maturity values, it is approximately Rs. 9,46,891 after 21 years – http://www.onemint.com/2015/03/09/sukanya-samriddhi-yojana-calculating-maturity-value-after-21-years/

Reply

Natesh March 18, 2015 at 4:06 PM

When I pay the premium of 12500/month, my annual contribution is obviously 150000/-.

When my monthly contribution is 12500, the accumulated balance after 14 years is 42,48,430 and after 21 years its 78,16,308

When my annual contribution is 1,50,000, the accumulated balance after 14 years is 42,88,898 and after 21 years its 78,90,762

why is that difference in accumulated balance for annual and monthly contribution for same value?

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 18, 2015 at 4:11 PM

This is because you are investing Rs. 1,50,000 at the beginning of the year and your money would earn 9.1% interest for the whole year. With Rs. 12,500 per month, your earliest installment will earn higher interest for you as compared to the installment you deposit in March 2016. So, this is causing a difference in the interest earned in a financial year.

Nothing astonishing looks with this scheme. If government was really serious then it should have created new clause apart from 80C for this thing otherwise there is no much difference between PPF and SSY. And with growing school and college tuition fee we have already invested up to extent of 80 C.

Reply

Shiv Kukreja March 19, 2015 at 7:59 PM

I think 9.1% tax-free rate of interest, which is higher than PPF’s 8.7%, is the best thing about this scheme.

Bini Thomas March 20, 2015 at 12:47 PM

I just want to know whether tax exception under 80C is applicable in FY 2014-15. Meaning, If I’m opening an account today for 50K, would that 50K count towards my allowed 1.5 lakhs tax exception under 80 C for this financial year? I saw in other site that tax exception for the maturity amount and interest is applicable from next FY onwards.
Please respond ASAP since noone explicitely mention which FY onwards 80C is applicable.
Thanks in advance.

Shiv Kukreja March 20, 2015 at 1:23 PM

Yes, tax exemption for the interest amount on withdrawal/maturity is applicable w.e.f. the next financial year (FY 2015-16). But, the investment in this scheme is already eligible for tax exemption u/s 80C for the current financial year, FY 2014-15.

My daughter age is 8 years 4months. If i open an account now, after 21 years she will be ~29 years by that time her marriage would also be over. If i want to take money for marriage can i take? and how much i will get(if i invest 12000/month). Is there will be any money loss.

Hi Chinmoy,
It is not mandatory to deposit the same amount every year, you can deposit any amount between Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 150,000. Also, in case of an unfortunate event with the parents, the girl child can continue this account or withdraw the balance & close the account.

SIR….first of all congrats…for giving such details and with such clarity on SSY,,,,
my question is u said that completion or maturity of scheme will be either 21 years of scheme or daughter marriage which ever may be earlier…
1….WHETHER it is mentioned in the scheme that we have to provide proof of marriage of daughter at time of maturity to authorities…
2…..Whether the maturity proceeds will go into daughters account or in parents account….i m asking these questions because i m planning to open account with the purpose that i would like to utilize the maturity proceeds for daughters marriage expenses…and this way then im going to plan the minimum contributions thereof……thanks

Sir,
I found this Scheme very intersting. But this Scheme has only been launched in Post Offices. Most Banks are yet to implement this scheme.
The major drawback that I have found is that one cannot deposit funds online. The PO has clearly mentioned that Online Facility is not available, and the Banks have no Head or Tail of this Scheme Yet.
I want your suggestion that should I invest in this Scheme, if there is any chances that very soon it may go Online, as I am unable to make Transaction by going to the Post Office physically. And you have any ideas as what may be the process of shifting this scheme from One PO/Bank to other, as my Job requires shifting time to time.

Reply

Shiv Kukreja April 10, 2015 at 1:32 PM

If I were to open this account, I would have waited for the banks to start opening these accounts as they are going to provide the online transfer facility as well. The other option is to get the account opened in a post office and then get it transferred to a bank. As of now, I don’t know the procedure to get this account transferred.

I have one doubt. This scheme was supposed to help parents for the marriage of their daughters. However , this scheme pays money after the marriage of the daughter and not before marriage. So it looks like when the money is really required ( just before marriage) , you cannot withdraw except 50% premature withdrawal allowed. What do you think?

2. Post Office ya Bank, kahin bhi ye account open ho sakta hai. Ye aapki marzi hai ki aap apni beti ka account kahaan open karna chahti hai. Banks ne abhi account opening process start nahin ki hai.

Sir,
It is very good scheme and we are thankful to you as you have explained the scheme in very simple manner. I want to know :- whole amount deposited is exempted from tax and who will get tax benefit. If girl child, just after attaining age of 18 year get employment and start contribution from own income than who will get tax benefit child or parents

Reply

Shiv Kukreja April 14, 2015 at 11:09 AM

Thanks Murari for your kind words!
Amount deposited up to Rs. 1.50 lakh will get tax exemption under section 80C. Moreover, maturity amount will also be tax exempt. Whosoever contributes to this scheme, whether parents or the girl child herself, will get the tax benefit under section 80C.

dear sir, i have few doubts
1. who can withdraw the money: the child or the guardian at the time of maturity
2. will supporting documents eg. admission form / marriage certificate be required for the withdrawal … in general the requirement of money will be before the marriage or before the admission so will it be allowed to withdraw money earlier
3. what happens if the parent and child have a dispute ..the child wants it and parent feels otherwise..
regards
charu

Shiv Kukreja April 14, 2015 at 1:22 PM

Hi Charu,
1. Girl child will have the claim right to this account.
2. Though it is still not clear, I have been told that a declaration of admission or marriage would be enough to withdraw 50% or 100% of the balance.
3. Even in case of a dispute, the girl child will have the claim right to the maturity proceeds.

– what is the case in case of dealth of depositor, scheme could be continued or amount to be withdrawn
– Is valid proof for education expense or marriage to be submitted to bank after maturity period or money can withdrawn after 21 years

Reply

Shiv Kukreja May 22, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Hi Dilshad,
1. There is a penalty of Rs. 50 per year of non-deposit and your account will become inactive.
2. It is up to the girl child (or her legal guardians) whether she wants to continue with the account or withdraw the balance amount.
3. Though it is still not clear what exactly the girl would be required to produce on her marriage or at the time of admission, but I think an affidavit and a declaration would be required stating that she wants to withdraw the amount for her higher education/marriage expenses.

After seeing the website of SSA, Govt.of India, a doubt has come to my mind about the eligibility of PIO for SSA .

My daughter’s DOB is 01-Feb-2002. Please suggest any other saving scheme is like sukanya samriddi is available.
Now she is 13 years. Can we pay the amount for the years for 3 years in one installment and open the account in sukanya samriddi since the age limit is 10 years

Thanks

Hi

1. My daughter’s DOB is 01-Feb-2002. She is 13 year old now so and not eligible for Sukanya Samriddhi. Please suggest any other scheme like Sukanya Samriddhi is available for her.
2. Since she is 13 years old could we pay the pending amounts of 3 years and open a Sukanya Samriddhi account.

Thanks

Dear sir i have a number of queries, which are given as follows.
1. As you said that one have to deposite in this scheme only for the first 14 years, then if i am correct, the capital investment at that time will be equal to the deposite+compound interest of 14 years?

2. Can someone continue depositing in the scheme after the 14 years for getting more interest/benefits?

3. Why are the muturity benefits differ on monthly and yearly basis payments for the same amount?

4. In case of unfortunate death of the child, the amount shall be paid to the parent(s), would it be included of intetest gained till the date.
