Updated: 31st Jan, 2022 ndian govt has started Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY) to encourage parents to save money for their daughter’s future where they get some additional benefits as compared to traditional saving instruments like FDs. The girl child should be the biological or legal child of parents. You can easily plan your investments if you have prior knowledge of how much you can get on maturity. I am here showing you a Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Calculator (in the form of a table) that will show you the maturity value calculated on different yearly investments. For the following calculations, I have taken these assumptions:
  • I assumed a minimum investing amount per month/year is Rs. 1000.
  • The rate of interest is assumed to be 8.1% throughout the period of the scheme for 21 years.
  • I have assumed a fixed amount for monthly or yearly contributions.
  • I have assumed that the scheme will complete the maturity period of 21 years and there will be no withdrawals made at 18.

    My daughter is 9 yr old, I am planning to invest Rs. 2000/- per month. Considering investment upto her 14 yr of age so what will be maturity amount at 21 yr of her age. (Your calculator do give this information) kindly comment.

    1. Please not that age of the girl child is only considered for eligibility not for deposits. In simple words if girl child is eligible for SSA than you will have to contribute 14 years from the year of opening of account not her attaining the age of 14 years.

      Maturity amount in your case would come close to Rs.12.50 lakhs

  5. My baby is 4 months old. i want to deposit 24k per anm then what will be the maturity amount at the age of 21yrs

    1. To open this account following documents are required to be submitted.

      Birth Certificate of Girl Child
      Identity proof of the depositor i.e. parent or legal guardian
      Address proof of the depositor i.e. parent or legal guardian

      In case Birth Certificate of girl child is not available than birth certificate from the school headmaster or from the hospital where girl child was born is also valid.

  6. hello My Daughter is age of 5 years , if i planned to contribute 1.50000 pa – as per maximum limit – wot will be maturity amount.??

      1. Hi Sanyam, how did you arrive at 80 lakhs? My daughter is also 5 year old, after investing for 14 years, she can only get around 56 lakh approx at her 21 years of age.

        Please clarify

        Thank you
