Right now the interest rates on Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana have been fixed at 7.6 percent.
You can deposit a maximum of Rs 1.50 lakh annually in this scheme. The monthly amount will be Rs 12500.
Suppose if these interest rates remain and for 14 years you invest Rs 12500 or Rs 1.50 lakh annually (maximum amount) every month.
You have to do this for 14 years.
In this scheme, the total contribution from you on investment of 1.50 lakh per annum for 14 years will be Rs 21 lakh.
In 14 years, this amount will be Rs 37,98,225, according to the compounding of 7.6% per annum.
After this, for 7 years, you will get 7.6 percent annual compounding return on this amount.
This amount will be around Rs 63,42,589 at 21 years i.e. maturity.
It is clear that an investment of Rs 21 lakh will become Rs 63.5 lakh on maturity, which means you will get Rs 42.5 lakh in interest.
