    Is there any provision to open the ssy account in the name of same girl Child in two different banks.

    • Hi Mohd Ibrahim,

      No. Only 1 account can be opened for 1 girl child under this scheme. Opening two accounts for 1 girl child in same or different banks is against the rules.

      1. Many post office branches have core banking implemented, and online deposit is possible with them. Check with your branch.
      2. Yes account transfer is easily possible. You will need to submit application at post office, give them detail of where to transfer account. They will send iver papeework to your chosen bank. Transfer fees is Rs 100/-
