Bank Account Form for Sukanya Samriddhi Account
During the “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” campaign launch in January 2015 at Panipat, India’s prime minister Shri Narendra Modi announced a special deposit scheme for girl child “Sukanya Samriddhi Account”.
The account can be opened in post offices and 28 banks authorized by reserve bank of India. Here is the screenshot of the Sukanya Samriddhi Account opening form available at both public and private sector banks.
The details required to be entered in the form are very simple to understand.
Make sure you carry original as well as photocopy of required documents for SSA yojana which are as follows:
- Birth certificate of the girl
- Address proof (Present and Permanent)
- Identification document proof
You can also open the SSA at Indian post offices. The details of the account opening form at post offices can be seen here.
Features of this scheme:
- Investment can be made in every financial year starting from 01 April 2014-31st March 2015
- You can pay either by cash/cheque/demand draft
- Account can be closed prematurely in case of the death of the account holder.
- The money accumulated through this scheme will be used for the development of infrastructure.
- During the launch of this yojana, passbooks to five girls were given who have opened the account under this scheme. Check out how Sukanya Samriddhi Account passbook looks like.
Read detailed information about the benefits of Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana. Many people are comparing SSA with PPF, which is incorrect as both has different objectives. Check out comparison of PPF and SSA, which will give you a clear picture.

Hello Dear, you need to make contribution EVERY YEAR at once or monthly.
SBI HAS NO ANY GUIDE LINE THAT HOW SSY ACCOUNT TO BE OPEN.
Dear Saroj, In fact SBI gave me similar response. And none of the banks have guidelines. So it’s better to open at the post office.

It is very nice scheme but I am facing a lot of difficulties, I am residing at Kankinara, North 24 Pargana, West Bengal – 743126. After seeing list of 28 banks I approached to Axis Bank (Naihati), SBI- Kankinara and PNB also in our locality but they have denied saying that they have not received any circular for this. Now what to do my daughter will complete 10 years in Sep 2015 and I do not want to open with Post office. Please resolve this problem on immediate basis so that I can open A/C for my daughter within proposed time.
