  3. Our girl is born in USA, but we have moved to India when she’s 2 months old. Though she has birth certificate from USA, she also has Indian passport and Adhaar card. So she’s indian citizen.
    My question is “Is she eligible to participate under this account?” As i’ve seen Birth certificate is required to open the account.

    Please answer.

    1. Alternative birth certificate for Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana
      But there are certain times where the parent or legal guardian might not have the birth certificate of the girl child. Most of the childbirths in rural areas happen without any official documentation and there is no paperwork such as a birth certificate to prove it. Birth certificate is one of the important documents that is needed in order to open a Sukanya Samriddhi Account but since there is a possibility many people might not have the certificate, the government has chalked out alternative through which the account can be opened. The parents or legal guardians of the girl child can submit these documents as alternatives in the absence of the birth certificate.

      A certificate issued by the Headmaster of the school verifying the date of birth of the girl child
      A certificate issued by the hospital where the girl child was born verifying the date of birth of the girl child
      Passport of the girl child
      PAN Card of the girl child
      Aadhar Card of the girl child.
