Calculating according to the current interest rate, you will get an interest of Rs 18,71,031 and the maturity amount will be Rs 27,71,031.

PPF

Anyone can deposit a minimum of Rs 500 per year and a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakh per year in Public Provident Fund. It is paying an interest rate of 7.1 percent. This scheme matures after 15 years, but to get more benefit from it, you can also extend this scheme in blocks of 5 years each.

Which scheme is better to choose

If you see it this way, your investment in Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme is less and the return is more. Whereas the return in PPF scheme is less. The investment is increasing on extension, but the return is still not as much as Sukanya Samriddhi. In such a situation, if you can wait for 21 years, then it will be better to invest in Sukanya Samriddhi for the daughter. But if you cannot wait for a long time, then you can choose the 15-year PPF scheme. Tax benefits are available on both schemes. You can choose according to your convenience and comfort.
