International Girl Child Day 2022: International Day of the Girl Child is an annual and internationally recognised observance on October 11. On this day, let’s look at the benefits of the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY). Although the government raised the interest rates for several small savings schemes starting this month (1 October), the SSY interest rate remained unchanged. SSY will continue to offer 7.6% on accounts. The interest rate on small savings schemes was last revised during the first quarter of 2020-21, when rates were slashed.
