Sukanya Samriddhi Account Calculator
A Sukanya Samriddhi account can help an individual save for his/her girl children. The savings from the scheme can be used for the girl’s education and marriage. The calculator can be used to find the actual and estimated interest earned on the savings/account balance. There are no presumptions made by the calculator, therefore, the results are accurate.
- Age of the girl – 1 year
- Rate of interest remains constant throughout the 21 years – 8.5%
- Contribution is made at the beginning of the financial year
- Throughout the 21 years, the amount is not withdrawn
Below is the sample calculator table:
|Age of girl child||Account age||Date of deposit||Deposit amount in Rs. (monthly)||Principal amount for the year in Rs.||Yearly interest in Rs. (8.5%)||Total amount at the end of the year (Rs.)|
SSY Calculator Table Format
On 23 July 2018, the criteria for the minimum annual deposit for the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account has been revised to Rs.250 from the earlier amount of Rs.1,000. Also, the interest rate for the July-September quarter is 8.1%. You can create your own (SSY) Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Account calculator by making a table with seven columns in the form of a data sheet with all the necessary information to calculate the yearly and monthly contribution.
Given below is the format:
- Column 1: Age of girl child – In this column, you must enter the age of your girl child as on today.
- Column 2: Account age – You must enter the account’s age, which means the number of years the account has been open for. (The Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme takes deposits for a maximum of 14 years)
- Column 3: Date of deposit – In this column, you have to enter the date of deposit of the amount towards the scheme.
- Column 4: Deposit amount – This column has the amount deposited towards the girl child by the guardian.
- Column 5: Principal amount at year-end – This column will have the amount available in the account at the end of a financial year. This amount is calculated by adding the total amount at the end of the year and the amount to be deposited for the next year. (Formula from second cell onwards, D3 +G2 and so on)
- Column 6: Total yearly interest – This column will have the interest accumulated under the SSY at the prevailing interest rate.
- Column 7: Total amount at year-end – In this column, you will be able to calculate the final amount that you will accumulate at the end of each year. (Formula to be used is Principal Amount + Yearly Interest – E2 +F2 to be used in an excel sheet)
Given below is the sample calculator table:
|Age of girl child||Account age||Date of deposit||Deposit amount||Principal amount at year end||Total yearly interest||Total amount at year end|
Note: Under the SSY scheme, interest calculation is compounded yearly. This is important to note as it will affect your maturity amount when you make monthly deposits.
Sukanya Samriddhi Account Closure on Maturity
The account closure on maturity is guided by certain rules.
- The account matures on completion of 21 years from the date of creation of the account. The complete maturity amount along with the interest accrued can be withdrawn on maturity.
- If the girl, for whom the account was opened, gets married before the completion of the maturity period, she can withdraw the balance amount, provided she is 18 years old at the time of such withdrawal. The girl has to produce an affidavit that states that she is 18 years of age at the time of withdrawal.
- If the girl attains the age of 18 and gets married before the completion of 14 years of the term, the account cannot be operated. Further deposits to the account cannot be made even if the mandated deposited were not made earlier.
- The girl child is the only authorized person who can withdraw the maturity amount. She is required to submit the passbook and the withdrawal slip to make the withdrawal.
- If the girl gets married after attaining majority and withdraws 50% of the amount for the purpose of marriage, she may choose not to close the account. Though further deposits cannot be made, the balance amount will earn interests until the completion of the 21-year term.
Calculation of Maturity Value under SSY after 21 Years
As it is difficult to make an accurate calculation of maturity value in this scheme as it depends on many variables. However, by keeping the variable constant with the monthly and the yearly contribution as the only variable, the maturity value can be calculated in the form of a table.
For the following calculation, some assumptions have been made, they are:
- The rate of Interest is assumed to be 8.1% throughout the period of the scheme for 21 years.
- Monthly contributions have to be made on the 1st day of every month.
- Yearly contributions have to be made on 1st of April every year.
- A fixed amount for monthly or yearly contribution has been consumed.
- It has also been assumed that throughout these 21 years, there have been no withdrawals made.

Advantages of Sukanya Samriddhi Account Calculator
There are numerous advantages to the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana calculator and they are:
- It allows you to know exactly what you will get as the maturity value when the account matures.
- If you have set it up in an excel sheet then you can put in what you intend to invest in the current and see how it will affect the maturity value.
- You can even set up the calculator to calculate the maturity value based on monthly or yearly investments.
- If configured correctly, the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana calculator can be extremely accurate.

Limitations of Sukanya Samriddhi Account Calculator
Even though the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana calculator is very convenient and useful, there are some things that work against this calculator.
- If it is not configured correctly it can provide incorrect values.
- Even though the government has provided a cap of Rs. 1.5 lakh the calculators don’t limit the annual investments so if you enter an investment of more than Rs. 1.5 lakh, it will still calculate a maturity value.
- Since the calculator is configured manually, you will have to enter the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana interest rate every time that it changes in the future.

Maximum of one SSY account can be opened in the name of a girl child and a guardian can open up to two accounts.

I already have a PPF account, should I also invest in the SSY?
Having a PPF is a good idea from an investment perspective. Although SSY is similar in nature to PPF in terms of investment, however, some of the reasons that make SSY a better option are:
- When you exhaust your limit in PPF, you can opt for SSY to save more for your girl child.
- PPF is mostly used for savings for yourself, while SSY is exclusively designed for your daughters.
- By investing in both PPF and SSY, you can save up to Rs.3,00,000 p.a. for your daughter.
- SSY offers a higher interest rate than PPF.

The SSY account terminates or matures after 21 years from the date of opening of the account. Once the account reaches its maturity, it stops earning interest.

When the girl child for whom the SSY account has been opened either pass 10th standard or turns 18, you can withdraw from the account. A maximum of 50% of the deposit made towards the account can be withdrawn to be used for higher education of the girl child.
