How does Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana Calculator work?
The Sukanya Samriddhi Account Calculator is easy to use. The calculator looks like in the picture below. You can only input orange cells. All you need is to fill up the SSY account opening year and annual contribution.
In case the yearly contribution varies over time, you can edit that too. The interest rate for Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana is revised every quarter. I would recommend taking average for a year and put it in “Average Annual Interest Rate”. This will give you approximate value of the maturity amount. As shown in the example below, if you deposit Rs 1.5 lakhs every year for 14 years, you can expect to get Rs 72 lakhs at maturity (assuming 8.5% interest every year)
Following are the assumptions for the calculator:
- The amount is deposited on start of every financial year.
- The example has 1.5 lakhs contribution every year, but can be edited in the calculator.
- The contribution happens for 14 years and is withdrawn on completion of 21 years
- Interest rate is taken as 8.5% for future years (can be changed in the calculator)
