National Pension System (NPS)

The Central Government has made the National Pension System (NPS) to be available to all citizens of India from May 01, 2009. National Pension System (NPS), regulated by Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA), is an important milestone in the development of a sustainable and efficient voluntary defined contribution pension system in India. It has the following broad objectives:

  • Provide old age income.
  • Reasonable market based returns over the long term.
  • Extending old age security coverage to all citizens.

Welcome to the National Pension System

NPS offers following important features to help you save for retirement:

  • You will be allotted a unique Permanent Retirement Account Number (PRAN). This being unique in nature, you will not be required to change the same or obtain the new one even if you shift your residence. Therefore, you will be able to use this account and this unique PRAN from any location in India.
  • PRAN will provide access to two personal accounts:
    • Tier - I pension account: You will contribute your savings for retirement into this non withdrawal account.
    • Tier - II savings account: This is an add-on account, which is simply a voluntary savings facility. You are free to withdraw your savings from this account whenever you wish.
