  1. Hi!
    pls clear, whether SSA can be opened in both Guardian’s name, i.e. Mother and Father both??
    In that case, is it possible to claim income tax deduction equally

  2. Hello, How do I do a change of guardian for Sukanya Sammridhi?. I opened by mistake in my name instead of my wife’s name as she will be using this as one of the 80C investments. Please advise.

    1. I think you will need to talk to your bank to check if its possible. Also let us know in case you find a solution to this – will help lot of our readers.

    2. Hi,

      I did the same mistake and the bank tells me that they cannot change the guardian name to Spouse. I have been trying to talk to multiple people and everyone says, once done cannot be changed till 18yrs and it has to continue in the same way. This is not correct and I feel, either mother or father should be able to change the guardian name.

      One option you may try is to see if any other bank can take a transfer from your existing bank and at that time, ask for a guardian name change.
