Additionally, we have also tried to share some important financial deadlines in 2024 that you should keep in mind. Whether 2023 was your best year or not, remember that each day is a new beginning. To wrap it up, here's one of my favourite Chinese proverbs: 

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.”

Not sure if you read the article, but it also talks about how the increase of interest rate in the Sukanya Samridhi Scheme from 8 to 8.2% and it is only for the quarter ending march 2024. Those who have kids/invest can better understand the value of this:)) so please feel free to skip if you didn't find the article useful.
