Saath Nibhana Saathiya is the story of two cousins – Gopi and Rashi – who are complete opposites. Gopi is an orphan who lives with her Mama-Mami and cousin Rashi. She is very innocent and is illiterate. Rashi is very greedy like her mother Urmila Shah.
The story starts with Kokila 's search for a perfect bride for her son Ahem. She chooses Gopi as her daughter-in-law. This makes Urmila becomes jealous of Gopi so they trick Ahem's cousin Jigar into marrying Rashi. Ahem leaves his girlfriend Anita for his mother without knowing that Gopi is illiterate.
Rashi and Urmila try to ruin Gopii's married life with their tricks: it fails after Gopi becomes pregnant and gives birth to a baby girl named Meera. Ahem confesses his love for Gopi and after many complications Rashi gives birth to twins named Samar and Sahir. Gopi is also reunited with her parents and sister.
Umang - Anita's brother comes back to get revenge on Ahem, by fake loving Radha, Gopi's sister. He already has a wife called Tripti. They try to steal all their money. Umang suddenly dies and Gopi gets arrested but the truth comes out as Tripti had killed Umang. Afterwards, Kinjal got pregnant. Radha refused that her Tripti killed Umang. Radha decided to kill Meera. One day, when Modi Family went Kuldevi Temple and went for a picnic, Radha tried hard to make Meera fall into the lake, fortunately Gopi comes running to Meera and tries to get her away from the lake, but just then poor Gopi slips on the wet grass and dropped Meera into the lake. Meera is not found afterwards. Kokila and Ahem blame Gopi for the death of Meera, so then Gopi leaves the house, without telling anyone she was pregnant.
The story takes an eight-year leap. Rashi returns to her old ways. She is sick of doing all the housework. Meanwhile Gopi has a daughter called Vidya. Gopi now works in a school in Bhopal. Kokila and Ahem fall into depression.
Rashi's two sons Samar and Sahir are too naughty. She sends them to boarding school with Prateek, Kinjals son who is always abused by Samar and Sahir. Rashi and Jigar end up sending them to the school where Gopi works. Rashi and Urmila plan to get Ahem remarried so that Rashi does not have to do the chores. Radha then tries to win everyone's heart so then she can marry Ahem! Then everyone agrees but Rashi and Urmila, they try hard to stop the wedding. Samir and Samar, Vidya and Prateek become friends. They all find out that there cousins. When they found out that Ahem and Radha are getting married they try hard to stop it as well but in vain. On the wedding day Samar and Sahir tell Rashi about this and they lock Radha in a room. They trick her and put a chemical in Gopi's drink so she is unconscious. They tell the family Gopi is Radha. They mistake her as Radha as Gopi is wearing a veil. Gopi gets married to Ahem. The family is shocked! They don't accept Gopi and take Gopi's daughter.
The truth is that Radha had left Meera at a temple and her name is Gauri. One day Kokila goes to pray at the temple and she overhears Radha and Tripti speak about what really happened. Gauri is at the temple at the same time and Kokila takes Gauri with her. However, Tripti made them meet with an accident.
Kokila loses her memory: She thinks Rashi is Jigna and the children of the family are Ahem, Jigar and Kinjal. Ahem is introduced as a business partner and Gopi as his wife. Jigar is the driver and Radha is the maid. Radha decides to get Gauri out of the house. The family goes on summer camp. Tripti makes Gauri meet by accident. Gauri gets badly hurt. At the hospital Ahem needs to transfer blood to Gauri and they have the same blood type. They discover that Gauri is Meera and Ahem accepts Gopi as his wife. Meanwhile, Radha is scared if Kokila will recall her past. Radha and Tripti finally gets exposed and they go to jail.
A teacher comes to Modi Bhavan to tutor the children but it turns out that he loves Gopi from when she was a teacher. Gopi then finds out and tells Rashi but she doesn't believe her. Anurag kidnaps Gopi and tries to marry her. The family find out and Rashi and the family tries to find her. Rashi succeeds however Anurag hits Rashi on the head and tragically, she dies. This leaves the Modi family in mourning. Urmila's niece-Paridhi, comes to Modi family to shoot a documentary on family.
Paridhi falls in love with Jigar and fools him to marry her. She is trying many tricks to win the heart of her husband and in-laws, while Gopi is doubting her behaviour. Meanwhile, Radha enters the story again, by fooling Paridhi and entering the house disguised as a maid to take revenge for putting her in prison. Paridihi truly loves Jigar and tricks him into marrying her, but its too late as Paridhi has won the heart of her would-be in-laws and has decietively engaged with Jigar. When Urmila completely disagrees therefore hides the engagement ring in her purse. On the other hand Radha hides it under Gopi's clothes and plots everything against her to make it look like shes done everything.
The Modi family is awestruck on learning that Roopamati is Radha. Radha claims to be the rightful wife of Jigar. The Modi family learns that Radha tricked Paridhi and Jigar. Gopi and Kokila order Radha not to enter the Modi Bhavan. Radha vows to return to the Modi Bhavan. Later, Paridhi accuses Urmila to have joined hands with Radha, to ruin her life. Hetal becomes worried about Jigar. After Diwali Radha admits that she is pregnant with Jigar's child.
Radha blackmails the family by threatening to harm her child in order to get what she wants. Paridhi convinces everyone that Radha will not harm her child as it is the only thing keeping Radha in the house. After fooling Radha into staying at home, Jigar and the Modi family attend the launch of the business. However Urmila upset that Jigar did not invite her personally goes to the Modi Bhavan and reveals to Radha where everyone went. Radha, angered at this goes to the venue to humiliate the Modi's in front of everyone. Paridhi dismisses her as the maid thus humiliating Radha.
After this incident the Modi's now fearing for the safety of their children come up with a plan to frame Radha for murder to keep her at bay until she delivers the baby. Radha unwittingly drops a pot on the ground near where Urmila is standing and Urmila fakes her death and is then sent on a tour of the country by Kokila.Meanwhile at the Modi Bhavan the family overhears Paridhi telling Radha that she will runaway with Jigar without the family. After hearing this Kokila turns against Paridhi while Hetal and Gopi believe that they can change Paridhi. This causes a rift between Kokila and Gopi.
Outside the Modi Bhavan Urmila speaks to her grandchildren before her flight and when sitting inside a rickshaw, Radha sees her face in the mirror and chases her. Urmila escapes and Radha returns home. At home Radha sets the temple on fire and Paridhi receives the blame, having been the last one seen at the temple. Jigar leaves unable to deal with issues and Gopi sends Paridhi with him. After they leave Kokila disowns Gopi. After Meera and Vidya fail to return from school, Radha reveals that she had them kidnapped. Radha will only release them provided that Jigar returns home and divorces Paridhi. It is also revealed that Radha caught up with Urmila and locked her up in the store room at the Modi Bhavan. Jigar and Paridhi sign the divorce papers and Radha says that she will now marry Jigar according to all the rituals. She keeps Paridhi in the house as a servant. An enraged Kokila attacks Radha and therefore Kokila and Gopi do not attend the wedding. Kokila and Gopi use the excuse of not attending to search for Meera and Vidya and go to a railway station to find them after seeing clues in the video of them. While they escape, Ahem and Jigar asks the police for help, sadly the police reaches the Modi bhavan. Gopi slips her phone and the family members keep on trying with them. Gopi and Kokila find the children, but Radha marries Jigar.
