Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana – Sample Filled Application Form

by Shiv Kukreja on March 12, 2015

in Investments

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

I have already posted three articles for Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana and the queries regarding this scheme are not showing any signs of tiredness. People have been asking all kind of queries regarding various features of this scheme and sharing all kind of experiences here on these posts. The biggest problem they are facing is to find out which bank branches are opening this account and accepting deposits from the general public. Banks are showing their inability to open these accounts as they do not have any clue about the account opening process.

I also got a few comments in which people wanted me to post a duly filled application form so that they can also easily fill the application form for themselves. So, here you have the sample of a duly filled application form:

IMG_0002

The application form is fairly simple and you can fill it in less than two minutes. Also, I have filled this application form to the best of my knowledge. So, if any of you find any discrepancy in it, please point it out to me and I’ll rectify it as soon as possible.

Please don’t forget to carry the necessary documents to open this account, which are as under:

* Birth Certificate of the Girl Child

* Identity Proof or Aadhaar Card of the Parent/Legal Guardian

* Residence Proof or Aadhaar Card of the Parent/Legal Guardian

* 2 Photographs of the Depositor/Parent/Legal Guardian

Much has already been mentioned about this scheme in my earlier posts, so I’ll wrap it up here. If you have any query regarding this scheme or any of its features, please let me know.

Sir is it necessary to declare a fix amount in a year.I mean can I deposit 4000 in 1st year n 40000 in next year….plz suggest me I have a little princess..

Reply

Shiv Kukreja July 10, 2015 at 6:05 PM

Hi Ashish,
It is not required to declare any fixed amount. You can deposit variable amounts each year.

Arati July 21, 2015 at 6:12 AM

Hi,
Planning to open one SSA a/c for my 8 year old daughter. Since the amount im investing is 1.5 lacs, a concern crossed my mind. If some unfortunate happen with me before my kid is 18, what will happen to the amount which has been paid so far? what is this nomination that has been left blank in specimen filled application form?

Thanks
Arati

Reply

Shiv Kukreja July 24, 2015 at 6:34 PM

Hi Arati,
Nomination has been left blank in the application form because nomination facility is not there with this account. In a way, the depositor is the nominee in case some unfortunate event happens with the girl child. In case of an unfortunate event happening with the depositor, the girl child or the legal guardian will have the option to either withdraw the balance amount & close the account or continue funding it.

Hi Sofia,
Birth certificate would be required along with the application form.

Reply

bikash July 22, 2015 at 7:35 AM

Please tell me the meaning of legal guardian.
The girl child is my uncle’s daughter.
Can I be the legal guardian ?
Can i get tax benefit for this ?
Wether i can get tax benefit for interest amt or deposited amount ?

Reply

Shiv Kukreja July 24, 2015 at 6:43 PM

Hi Bikash,
If you have been legally taking care of the girl child as a guardian, you would be termed as the legal guardian. If you are depositing the amount, then you can claim the deposited amount as a deduction u/s 80C. Interest amount would be tax-free on maturity.

Thanks in advance.

It is better if the birth certificate carries the girl child’s name on it. But, it is not mandatory to have name on it.

Sir, We are blessed with girl baby. We got birth certificate also.

Are we eligible to open account?
2. In the above form, Under 1st depositor name, There mentioned two names. What does it mean? If i’m be the 1st depositor, could my wife be the 2nd depositor?
Thank you

Reply

Shiv Kukreja September 13, 2015 at 11:54 PM

Hi Jai,
1. Yes, your daughter is eligible for this account.
2. First name is of the girl child and afterwards, it is the depositor’s name.

Bindiya Chavda September 9, 2016 at 4:17 PM

Mr. Shiv,

On first page, point no. 7, you have mentioned two names, of your daughter and yours. But you have put U/G between the two names.
What does it mean?

kavita goswami September 15, 2015 at 1:21 PM

I want to know the calculation of interest weather it will be counted periodically or yearly i.e.
if i deposit in april
1000*12=12000 pa @ 9.2% int=1104
if i deposit in september
1000*12=12000 pa @ 9.2% int=1104*7/12=644 OR full amount of 1104 will be availed

Reply

Shiv Kukreja September 27, 2015 at 7:26 PM

Hi Kavita,
Interest will be paid for the period of deposit and compounded annually. If you deposit in September, then interest will be paid for 7 months only and added to your investment amount in April.

Hi Vivek,
It is extremely difficult to guesstimate the exact maturity amount if you deposit different amounts every year. Moreover, even interest rate is not fixed, so it is not possible to calculate exact maturity amount.
