Sukanya Samriddhi Yojanna (SSY)

The Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY) is a government-backed small savings scheme that aims to promote financial security of the girl child. By investing in this scheme, an investor can claim maximum deductions of up to ₹1.5 Lakh under Section 80C. The returns are also tax-free. A parent or a legal guardian of a girl child below the age of 10 years can open this small savings account at an authorised bank or a post office. A minimum of ₹250 and a maximum of ₹1,50,000 can be deposited in this account per financial year. The tenure of an SSY account is 21 years from the date of opening. At present, you will receive an interest rate of 7.6% p.a. on your SSY account.

What Is the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY) Calculator?

Since Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana is a long-term investment, it may be wise to plan your investment and get an estimate of the maturity amount and year of maturity before you start investing. A Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana calculator could help you plan better and decide the amount you want to invest every year to meet your long-term financial goals. An SSY calculator will also help you eliminate the need for manual calculations and provide error-free results.

How Does the SSY Calculator Work?

The Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana calculator is easy-to-use. You will have to enter a few basic details, such as the year you plan to start investing and the amount you plan to invest per financial year. The calculator will automatically assume the prevailing rate of interest to proceed with the calculation. The calculator will also assume that the girl child is aged below 10 years. Please note that you will have to make at least one contribution per year for the first 14 years of the scheme. However, you can choose not to make any investments from year 15 to year 21 and your savings will continue to earn interest at the prevailing rate. 

While calculating the maturity amount, the SSY calculator makes a few assumptions:

  • The investor deposits a fixed amount every year
  • No deposits were made between the 15th and 21st year of investment
  • No premature withdrawals were made during the 21-year tenure
  • The interest rate remains unchanged throughout the investment period

Let us now look at the mathematical formula you can use to calculate the earnings from your SSY savings investment:

Formula to Calculate the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Earnings

The mathematical formula to calculate the amount you will earn from your investment is as follows: 

A= interest earned
P= initial investment amount
r= prevailing rate of interest
n= the number of times interest is compounded in a year
t= number of years

Let us understand it better with an example.

Understanding the SSY Earnings With an Example

Let us assume that you want to make a yearly investment of ₹5,000 for the first 14 years. No deposit is made between year 15 and 21. Also, we will assume that the rate of interest will remain constant at 7.6% p.a. throughout the 21-year tenure of your investment and compounding happens once per year. We also assume that no premature withdrawal is made any time during the tenure. 

Then, this how your opening and closing balance would look like for the next 21 years:

Therefore, going by the above example, here’s how much you would have earned after 21 years:
Total investment = ₹70,000
Maturity amount= ₹2,11,398 

Interest earned = ₹1,41,398

So, over a period of 21 years, you will get an absolute return of almost 202% on your investment.
