Documents needed to open a Sukanya Samriddhi Account

Individuals who wish to open a Sukanya Samriddhi Account for their daughter need to submit the following documents.

  • Birth certificate – The parents/legal guardian should provide proof of birth of girl child to the relevant authorities. This birth certificate can be obtained from the hospital where the child was born or through government agencies. In case the birth certificate cannot be obtained, a certificate of domicile issued by government officials will be needed. If this certificate cannot be obtained, one could get a certificate of the date of birth from the principal of the school in which the girl studies.
  • Address proof of parents/legal guardian – The parents/legal guardian who wish to open this account on behalf of a girl child are expected to furnish proof of their residence before an account can be opened. This address proof could be any valid government approved ID card like passport, driving license, ration card, electricity/telephone bill, etc.
  • Identity proof of parents/legal guardian – The parents/legal guardians who intend to open a Sukanya Samriddhi Account for their daughter should present a valid ID proof in order to process the application. This could be any government issued ID card like driving license, passport, Aadhar card, voter ID card, etc.

It is important for the birth certificate to have the correct name of the girl child as this document makes her eligible to withdraw the money on maturity and discrepancies in certain details could cause delays and complications in the future. The bank will issue a passbook containing details about the girl child. This passbook needs to be updated everytime a deposit is made and is required at the time of withdrawal.
