With the birth of a daughter, the father starts worrying about her education and marriage. This is the reason why sensible and alert people start planning for the future of their daughter as soon as she is born. Apart from this, elderly people are also very worried about money after retirement because they do not have any other source of income apart from their savings. In such a situation, it is very important that their deposits are invested in a place where their deposits are completely safe and they also get guaranteed interest on them.


Many schemes are run by the government to remove the worries about the future of daughters and to make the elderly financially strong. Here we are going to tell you about two such schemes that are run to provide a bright future for daughters and the benefit of better interest rates for the elderly. The government is giving interest of 8.2% in both these schemes. The benefits of both these schemes can be availed from any post office or authorized bank.

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana
The Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme is run by the government for daughters. If your daughter's age is less than 10 years, then you can invest in this scheme. This scheme matures after 21 years, but in this, the daughter's parents have to deposit the amount for 15 years. A minimum of Rs 250 and a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh can be invested in it annually. The sooner you start investing in this scheme, the sooner you will be able to deposit money for your daughter. At present, interest is being given on it at the rate of 8.2 percent. In such a situation, if you deposit Rs 1.5 lakh annually for 15 years, then at the rate of 8.2 percent, you can collect Rs 69,27,578 i.e. about Rs 70 lakh on maturity.

Senior Citizen Savings Scheme
If you are retired and want to invest in a scheme with better interest rates, then you can invest in Senior Citizen Savings Scheme. Any person whose age is 60 years or more can invest in this scheme. At the same time, civil sector government employees taking VRS and people retiring from defense are given age relaxation with certain conditions. Senior citizens can invest up to a maximum of Rs 30,00,000 and can avail better interest rates on the deposited amount. The minimum investment limit is Rs 1000.


In this scheme also the government gives 8.2 percent interest. You can deposit money in this account for a maximum of 5 years at a time and can extend that account for up to 3 years at a time. If you deposit Rs 30,00,000 in the SCSS account, then in 5 years at an 8.2 percent interest rate, you can earn up to Rs 12,30,000 only from interest. In this way, after 5 years the maturity amount will be Rs 42,30,000.
