Do you want to know how to open Sukanya Samriddhi Account in post office? Recently while reading an article on Jagoinvestor.com and TFLguide.com, I found one person shared his real-time experience of opening Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana in post office of Pataudi.
There are many banks where Sukanya Samriddhi Account can be opened. Country’s largest banks like SBI, PNB, IDBI, Axis Bank etc. have already started operating under SSY account.
Although I have also personally visited to Madhapur post office to know more about this scheme, but they gave me an old form to open Sukanya Samriddhi account. You can checkout the new Sukanya Samriddhi Account Opening Form in Post office & Bank by RBI.
Anyway Mr. Dinesh Rohilla has explained how to open SSA account in post office in an easier way. Check out the entire experience below.
Experience of Opening Sukanya Samriddhi Account
Experience of Opening SSA
Quite surprised by the update knowledge of post office staff in a small town like Pataudi regarding this scheme while the commercial banks in the area didn’t have any instructions regarding SSA neither there customer care helpline.
Anyway following is the procedure adapted by me :-
1) Downloaded form from internet along with gazette notification
2) Filled the form and deposit it along with i)Date of Birth Certificate of my daughter, ii) my identity card copy ,iii) Latest electricity bill for residence proof
Note:- I had pasted photo on form on which it is written that photo is optional but at post office they told me to give them two more photos. So be prepared.
3) Please check whether they had correctly written in pass book the name and differentiate who is account holder (girl child) and who is depositor (parent/guardian).
In my case they had written just depositor name ( girl child which is not correct way) and after bringing it to their notice they promptly corrected and said they write this way on all pass books but will be happy to know the correct method.
4) Please deposit original birth certificate .Postal staff told me that there is no need to deposit original certificate and photocopy will be sufficient. Being a Birth and Death registrar earlier I know that wherever required Birth/Death certificate should be original.You can take as many as certificates as you wish from authorities by paying fee .
5) On the day of opening account you cannot do other transaction as per staff but can open account with any amount.
Overall experience was very pleasant and efficient working of staff really make me happy .
