Operating the accountA depositor can open and operate only one account in the name of the girl child under the Sukanya Samriddhi Account Rules, 2016. To meet the requirement of her higher education expenses, partial withdrawal of up to 50 per cent of the balance is allowed after she turns 18.One can't open two accounts for one girl. Deposits in the account can be made till the completion of 15 years, from the date of the opening of the account. For a 9-year-old, deposits have to continue till the child turns 24. Between the ages of 24 and 30 (when the account matures), the account keeps earning interest on the balance.

The interest rate since its launch is as follows:
From April 1, 2014: 9.1%
From April 1, 2015: 9.2%
From April 1, 2016 -June 30, 2016: 8.6%
From July 1, 2016 -September 30, 2016: 8.6%
From October 1, 2016-December 31, 2016: 8.5%

From April 1, 2018 -June 30, 2018: 8.1%
From July 1, 2018 -September 30, 2018: 8.1%
