SSY: 5 big changes in Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana, know before depositing money
Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana: If you too are planning for the future of your daughter, then you can invest in all the schemes run by the government. One such scheme of the central government is ‘Sukanya Samridhi Yojana’ (SSY). In this, rebate is also available on investment under 80C. Let us know about the 5 major changes in SSY.
Change in account closure rule
The account of ‘Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana’ could be closed earlier on death of daughter or change of residence of daughter. But now the life-threatening illness of the account holder has also been included in this. The account can be closed prematurely even in the event of the death of the guardian.
Account of ‘third’ daughter will also be opened
Earlier, the benefit of tax exemption under 80C was available only on the account of two daughters. This was of no use to the third daughter. But now if one daughter is followed by two twin daughters, then there is a provision to open an account for both of them as well.
Revenge interest rule
There is a provision to deposit a minimum of Rs 250 in the account annually and a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh. The account defaults if the minimum amount is not deposited. Under the new rules, if the account is not activated again, interest will continue to be paid at the rate applicable on the amount deposited in the account till maturity. It was not like this before.
Rules for operating the account
Earlier the daughter could operate the account in 10 years. But according to the new rules, now daughters are not allowed to operate the account before the age of 18 years. Till this age, only the guardian will operate the account.
Also important information
Under the new rules, the provision of reversing the wrong interest in the account has been removed. Apart from this, the annual interest of the account will be credited at the end of every financial year.
