I have been getting a lot of questions about if an NRI can open a Sukanya Samriddi Account(SSA) for their daughters. As per government gazette, nothing has been mentioned about the same. But I talked to my Local post office and he didn’t seem to have any concern about opening the account for NRI clients.
As per my understanding NRI should be able to open the SSA account for there daughter but it is best to wait for further clarification. As compared to PPF, where NRI cannot legally open an account. In case the account was opened before he became NRI, he can make a contribution of Rs 70,000 in the same as the cutoff date for the same was 2003.
You can find detailed info about the SSA here.
In case you have any more question, feel free to contact us regarding the same.
