2. Account can be closed ahead of time
According to the new rules of the scheme, in case of death of the daughter, permission has been given to close the Sukanya Samrudhi Yojana prematurely. In the old rule the account could be closed in 2 positions. One is the death of the daughter and the other is the change of address.
3. Rule of account opening for more than 2 daughters
Depending on the scheme, an account can be opened for more than 2 jikris. Even if daughters are born after the birth of a daughter, an account can be opened for her. According to the new rule, to open an account for more than 2 daughters, an affidavit has to be submitted along with the birth certificate.
4. Rule of account operation
Under the new rule, a daughter will not be allowed to operate an account until she is 18 years old. Under the old rule it was allowed for this in 10 years. Now the account holder will be able to operate it only after 18 years. Documents have to be submitted to the bank or post office at the age of 18 at this time.

The new rule removes the facility to change the wrong interest in the account. Apart from that the interest in the account will be credited at the end of the financial year based on the new rules.
