The special thing about this scheme is that investment can be started from Rs.250 in it. Interest is also good in this as compared to other schemes. Along with this, the benefit of tax exemption is also available.

The government is giving interest at the rate of 7.6 per cent per annum on Sukanya Smridhi Yojana. A maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh can be invested in a financial year. At the same time, if at least 250 is not invested in any financial year after the account is opened, then a penalty of Rs 50 will be imposed. If your daughter’s age is less than 10 years, then SSY account can be opened in her name. The maturity of the plan is up to 21 years. But parents have to deposit money only for 14 years. Interest continues to accrue for the rest of the year. An amount up to Rs 64 lakh can be raised through this scheme.

Know when you can withdraw money

The money deposited in it cannot be withdrawn till the girl child turns 18. Even after 18 years, only 50% of the total amount can be withdrawn from this scheme. Full money will be given when the daughter turns 21. Money can be received in a lump sum or in installments. You will get money only once in a year. You can take money in installments for a maximum period of five years.
