New Pension Scheme (NPS)

NPS 150x1501 New Pension Scheme (NPS)NPS or the New Pension Scheme was launched in India on May 1,2009. It is a scheme which enhances the social security in our country and its aim is to provide social security after retirement. Till the launch, in India we had a Defined Benefit Plan. As the name suggests one would get certain pension fixed for whole of his life. This means the post-retirement proceeds were fixed and if there is a shortfall in this corpus, Government would make good. The NPS is a Defined Contribution Plan, where the returns would not be fixed. But now NPS is a defined contribution plan so that you will only get what you have contributed & return that fund manager generated on it.

In his election speech in 1935, Franklin Delano Roosevelt said “it is the more obligation to honor the right of citizen to live with dignity even in the retired life”. When it comes to pension or social security, our eyes turn to the Government. In India also, the charm of being a government servant is the Pension that you get in your retirement years. So to reduce the burden on its expenses the NPS was introduced by the exchequer. Around 8 Crore investors are estimated to be eligible to join this scheme.

Regulator

Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) is the regulator for the NPS. PFRDA was established by the Government of india on 23 August 2003 to promote old age income security by establishing, developing and regulating pension funds.

Applicability

All new entrants to Central Government services (other than Armed Forces) after Jan 1, 2004, would compulsorily join this scheme. All India citizens, including NRI, aged 18 to 60 can voluntary join the scheme. The exit age will be 60 years.

Contribution Requirements

A minimum contribution of Rs 6000 Would be compulsory per year. Minimum amount per contribution is Rs 500 and a minimum of 4 contribution in a year for each subscriber account is required.

Structure

Under NPS, each subscriber would be allotted a unique 16 digit Permanent Retirement Account Number (PRAN). This number would be portable. The records of transactions and investor would be maintained by central record Keeping agency (CRA). At present NSDL is the CRA and in future the number of CRA would be increased. The subscriber has an option to invest with seven Pension Fund Manager (PFM). He also has the option to choose any one or multiple PFM to manage his contribution. these PFM will have 3 Kind of funds categorized as E for Equity fund, G for fund investing in Government Securities and C for Fixed income securities other than Government Securities.

Subscription types

To apply for the voluntary pension scheme, there are two types of accounts:

Non- Withdraw- able account: The Tire 1 account is the basic NPS account that is non -withdrawable till retirement on in the case of death of  the subscriber. In this type of account, the total corpus at the retirement age is split, whereby a minimum of 40 percent  of  the final corpus has to be compulsorily used to buy an annuity while the subscriber is free to withdraw the remaining 60 percent as a lum sum or in installments.

Withdraw-able Account: A tier 2 account is available to only who are existing subscriber of the tier 1 account. The unique selling point of the tier 2 account is that money contributed into this account can be freely withdrawn as and when the subscriber wishes except for minimum balance that needs to be maintained at the end of each financial year.

Investment Charges

The NPS levies an investment charges of .00009% of the asset under management. Initial charges of account opening would be around Rs 470. From second year onward the charges would be Rs 350 per annum. Also a charge of Rs 10 would be applicable for each transaction. These charges are bound to come once the investor base increases. Also recently it has been announced that Government would credit Rs 1000 to every new account which is opened. In other words it would compensate the joining fees charged by the CRA.

Tax & Return

The contribution under Tier I account would under the sec 80c of the Income Tax, but withdrawals from this scheme be taxable under the EET(exempt – exempt – tax ) system. (As per recommendations of forthcoming new direct tax code  the withdrawals would be tax free). The returns are not guaranteed and as per your fund selection and performance of the Fund Manager.

The Pension Fund Managers

At present there are seven PFMs. These are UTI. SBI, LIC, Lotak, Reliance ADAG, IDFC and ICICI pruedential.

How can I apply for the NPS

The scheme is offered though 23 point-of – Acceptance or POS. The major are SEBI and its 7 associated bank, ICICI bank ,IDBI Bank, OBC, Allahbad Bank CAMC  etc. Not all the branches of these POS offer the information and services for NPS. You can check the website of the particular POS or call their toll free number to get information about of this availability of  this scheme. Also a word of caution: Few cases have been registered, where investor approached for NPS but was offered ULIP as the retirement solution product. Please read the offer document of NPS to get  the finest details.

Till date only 5000 individuals have voluntarily opted for this scheme & total amount collected under this scheme is around 10 Crore.

    Is this a very good scheme for professionals and if i want to invest in this and i want to calculate how much i should invest to get 15000 as my pension is there any formula? can u share it with us.
    Thanks and Regards,
    swati shevade

    • Hemant Beniwal June 25, 2010, 1:12 PM

      @ Swati

      It’s very early to say that ‘it’s a very good Scheme’ – now & then there are lot’s of changes in the investment world & especially in NPS. Ya but it’s expense ratio is very low.

      Regarding the calculation part your question is incomplete(for how many years you need this income, do you want to consider impact of inflation etc).

      If you have any specific question mark a mail to [email protected]

  • Sunil Date June 27, 2010, 2:32 PM

    Can you clarify whether the annuity ( not the accumulation phase) in a NPS is also proposed to be tax free ?

    Currently the NPS has only the accumulation phase. An annnuity has to be purchased from one of the insurance companies, who are offering immediate annuity ( not defered annuity).

    • Hemant Beniwal June 27, 2010, 8:50 PM

      @ Sunil
      “… annuity schemes will also be subject to EEE method of tax treatment.” Point 3.1 of discussion paper says this. (but still it’s a discussion paper)

      They have not mentioned deffered or immediate annuity. We feel same tax treatment will be applicable for both.

  • Prasad July 23, 2010, 12:19 PM

    PFRDA site has given following information about death of PRAN holder.
    the amount can be disbursed as pension to SPOUSE of PRAN holder.
    but what about corpus left after death of spouse.
    will that be given to family members especially children as lump sum or on a monthly pension format?

    • Hemant Beniwal July 26, 2010, 5:32 PM

      @Prasad

      Will be given back to legal hires as lumpsum. Only in case of some annuity schemes amount is ceased.

  • pattu August 14, 2010, 11:22 PM

  • Satya Narayan Mishra October 8, 2010, 8:47 AM

    I’m a private sector employee. My date of birth is 29/06/1977.
    First of all can I avail the NPS?
    If yes, suppose I will contribute Rs 2000 per month, then how much I would get as pension when I’ll attain the age 60?
    Also will I get some lumpsum amount along with the pension?
    Will I have an option to take a lumpsum amount or only pension or both?
    What would be the lumpsum amount?
    Can the account transferable from branch to branch? for example I opened the account at Hauzkhas, Can I transfer to Chandinichowk?
    What are to documents required to open a NPS account?

    • Hemant Beniwal October 8, 2010, 11:50 AM

      First of all can I avail the NPS?
      > Yes you Can

      If yes, suppose I will contribute Rs 2000 per month, then how much I would get as pension when I’ll attain the age 60?
      >NPS is a defined contribution plan and the returns are linked to markets and also the asset allocation chosen by you. Last year category average returns of the pension fund managers was in the 19.5% & top performer UTI gave return of 24.6% in same period. But this is just one year performance when equity markets have given good returns. Assuming a CAGR of 10% your contribution of Rs 2000 pm would be able to accumulate Rs 33 Lakh in 27 years. After accumulation you need to purchase annuities, if we assume that you buy fixed annuity for 15 years which pays you approximate 6% Return – you will get Rs 28000 pm.

      Also will I get some lumpsum amount along with the pension?
      Will I have an option to take a lumpsum amount or only pension or both?
      What would be the lumpsum amount?
      >Please read the “subscription types” in above article.

      Can the account transferable from branch to branch? for example I opened the account at Hauzkhas, Can I transfer to Chandinichowk?

    • Hemant Beniwal October 26, 2010, 11:56 AM

      Hi Sukhwinder

      I am assuming that Govt is also contributing the same amount – means total contribution of Rs 6000 PM.

      In 16 year @ 10% CAGR you can accumulate approximately Rs 26 Lakh. After that you have to purchase annuity. I am assuming you will purchase 15 years fixed annuity & annuity rate at that time will be 6% – You may get monthly pension of Rs 22000.

      • D srinivasa kumar November 7, 2013, 10:50 PM

  • Darshan October 14, 2010, 3:59 PM

    Dear Sir, I have following queries:

    1. Till what age can the person get pension from the age of 60?
    2. The corpur left after the death of the holder ,say at 80, will that be given to the nominee?
    3. Till now what and where can we come to know about the performance of the NPS? Like, Equity option what is the NAV till date?
    4. Why is this scheme not popular as others? Other than Government One…

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hemant Beniwal October 26, 2010, 12:12 PM

      Hi Darshan

      Please find the inline reply:
      1. Till what age can the person get pension from the age of 60?
      > It depends on the type of annuity you choose – there are 6-7 type of annuities. If you choose ‘annuity for life’ you can get it upto your death.
      2. The corpur left after the death of the holder ,say at 80, will that be given to the nominee?
      >Again, it depends on the annuity choice, If you choose “Annuity for life with return of purchase price on death of the annuitant” your nominees will get that amount.
      3. Till now what and where can we come to know about the performance of the NPS? Like, Equity option what is the NAV till date?
      >NPS is a defined contribution plan and the returns are linked to markets and also the asset allocation chosen by you. Last year category average returns of the pension fund managers was in the 19.5% & top performer UTI gave return of 24.6% in same period. But this is just one year performance when equity markets have given good returns. (Right now there is no sngle source where you can compare the performance or check NAV)
      4. Why is this scheme not popular as others? Other than Government One…

    I’m a private sector employee. My date of birth is 08/08/1965.
    Iam contributing Rs 15000 per quarter ,( Rs.10000 for tier1 and Rs. 5000 for tier2) then how much I would get as pension when I’ll attain the age 60?
    Will I get some lumpsum amount along with the pension?
    Do I have an option to take a lumpsum amount or only pension or both?
    What would be the lumpsum amount for tier 2?

    • Hemant Beniwal October 26, 2010, 11:39 PM

      Hi Praveen,

      In Tier 2 money contributed into this account can be freely withdrawn as and when the subscriber wishes except for minimum balance that needs to be maintained at the end of each financial year.

      If we assume a rate of 10% in next 15 years – your accumulated sum at retirement will be 20.4 Lakh. Out of this 6.8 will be in Tier 2.

      If we take one more assumption that you will withdraw full amount from Tier 2 as lumpsum you can still expect a monthly pension of Rs 11500 for 15 years.

  • Praveen Singh Chauhan November 9, 2010, 1:02 PM

    If we assume 10% return in NPS & 6% return in Annuity(15 years fixed annuity)

    NPS corpus will be Rs 90000 after 30 years.

    You may get a pension of Rs 76000 at that time.(which will be equal to today’s Rs 13000)

    If you withdraw 60% of the corpus – pension will be 30000.

    Hemant

    I want to open an NPS account and I reached few banks like sbi & uti but they are saying that they don’t know about this scheme. How can I find out who is selling NPS. These days I am following your guidlines for every investment :)

    • hemantbeniwal November 19, 2010, 3:45 PM

      Hi Sapan,
      Thanks for showing confidence in us & following our guidelines. NPS is offered though 23 point-of – Acceptance or POS. The major are SBI and its 7 associated bank, ICICI bank , IDBI Bank, OBC, Allahbad Bank, CAMC etc. Not all the branches of these POS offer the information and services for NPS. You can check the website of the particular POS or call their toll free number (State Bank of India 1800 112211 & Axis Bank 1800 233 5577) to get information about of this availability of this scheme. We already have written
      Also a word of caution: Few cases have been registered, where investor approached for NPS but was offered ULIP as the retirement solution product.

    • Garima Kotawala November 23, 2012, 9:53 PM

      hi sapan…Where are you located..you can also contact IDBI Bank one of the POS on toll free nos 1800 200 1947. I work as Assistant MAnager in IDBI bank located at Jaipur.

      If you are in jaipur, you may contact me on 0141-5106400.

      Thanks

  • Avinash November 23, 2010, 3:09 PM

    Hi,
    Do I need to stick to the same POS for carrying out my NPS transactions? So can I open NPS account with say Axis bank and then, due to change in residence, carry out subsequent transactions with say SBI (that is closer to my new place) ?

    • Hemant Beniwal November 23, 2010, 9:33 PM

      Hi Avinash

      You can change POS, there is a small fees of Rs 20. You should call on tollfree no of AXIS 1800 233 5577 & get the details.

  • ram December 4, 2010, 7:41 PM

    as u know govt employee have to contribute 10% of their BASIC +DA and same amount is being contributed by GOVT in nps.meanwhile thier DA is on an average increasd by 10% twice evey year.my own contribution is 3000/month.my basic at present is 20000 and DA is 45% of my basic.age is 30.what wud be corpus and pension amount keeping the fact in mind that the amount has to be increased every half yearly from both sides [employee and govt].

    • Hemant Beniwal December 5, 2010, 6:46 AM

      Hi Ram,

      Thanks for solving queries of other readers.

      Normally for a govt employee salary increases by 5-6% every year(Including changes after recommendations of pay commissions)

      Assumptions I have taken for your calculation:
      1 9% return on NPS & 6% on annuity that you will purchase after retirement.
      2 5% increase in income every year (similar increase in NPS Contribution)
      3 Retirement Age 62 & Life Expectancy 75

      Your corpus at your retirement will be Rs 2.39 Crore – this will give you monthly income of Rs 5.20 Lakh every month for 13 years. (Rs 5.20 Lakh will be equal to Rs 80 thousand of today if we consider inflation of 6%)

      Keep visiting :)

  • venkat December 11, 2010, 5:36 PM

    I am in private service and aged 49 yrs. Do you advise me joining NPS at this age? How is better option vis a vis pension ULIPs?

    Regards

    venkat

    • Hemant Beniwal December 11, 2010, 7:35 PM

      Hi Venkat,

      At your age I will not suggest you entering NPS as there are still many loopholes that should be filled. Don’t go for pension ULIP – they are pathetic products.

      Considering 10 year time in retirement – You should make your portfolio through Mutual Funds & PPF(It’s a 15 year product but still it makes sense to open it).

      “The total corpus of NPS is 7,000 crore, whereas collections from the unorganised sector under the scheme is only 40 crore.”

  • Jitendra December 11, 2010, 8:32 PM

    • Hemant Beniwal December 11, 2010, 8:43 PM

      Hi Jitendra,
      That will be close to Rs 60000 per month if you consider taking a fixed 15 years annuity.

    I am a private company’s employee.
    I want to open a NPS from State Bank of India is this scheme available in this bank, if not then from which bank?
    My Age is 26 years DOB: 08/10/1984.
    I want to open with minimum of RS 1000.
    How much amount i will receive when I attend the age of 60?
    Will i show it for tax deduction?

    • Hemant Beniwal December 15, 2010, 6:41 AM

      Hi Deepak

      SBI & it’s all associates are POS for NPS.

      NPS comes under 80 C so your investments can be used to take the benifit.

      If we assume a rate of 10% your accumulation will be Rs 34 Lakh.

    Hemant,
    I am a state government employee and is into NPS. I has received PRAN(just a 12 digit number and nothing else). What I wish to know is will I get a PRAN Card, a I-PIN and a T-PIN. Where will I get the statement of transaction. (People in government NPS cell are not so co-operative and I cannot go to them asking for these things.) Guide me

    • Hemant Beniwal January 12, 2011, 12:05 AM

      Hi Chandan,

      The PRAN is the primary number for identifying and operating the NPS account. Once the account is opened, CRA (Central Record keeping Agency) mail a “Welcome Kit” which contains the PRAN card and the complete information provided by you in the registration form.

      You receive a T-PIN for accessing the account through call Centre and a I-PIN for accessing your account on CRA website. If you havn’t received your I-PIN and T-PIN, contact CRA. For more information you can visit (www.cra-nsdl.com/www.npscra.nsdl.co.in)

      You can access your transaction statement and other details either through call Center or by logging on the website.

      I think this will be helpful.

      NPS is an accumulations scheme – you should avoid it at this stage of life.

    • Hemant Beniwal March 18, 2011, 4:14 PM

      NPS is defined contribution scheme & Max entry age is 60 – so I think you should be entitled to it.(contact your accounts department)

    • Hemant Beniwal March 23, 2011, 5:43 AM

      Hi Sunil,

      By rule of thumb you can still invest 60% in equities – but if this is your first investment in equity don’t invest more that 30-40%.

  • Subramanya P.R March 23, 2011, 3:00 AM

    Hi Hemanth,

    I was planning to open an NPS account and start contributing. And while I was reading about NPS, in one of the responses above, you say there are loopholes in NPS. That makes me a bit nervous. What are the loopholes? Are you talking about any serious loopholes?

    • Hemant Beniwal March 23, 2011, 5:36 AM

      Hi Subramanya,

      Few of them:
      The debt instruments that the NPS buys are not indexed. So literally the fund manager can buy anything – the risk is on the unit holder.
      Limit on govt emp equity participation.

      They are not that big & may be solved with time. You can invest some money in NPS. (10%-15% of your savings for retirement)

      In a Year you need to contribute Rs.6000 only and that you can do by investing 500 monthly.
      In this there are three assets class which a person can opt for i.e. equity,fixed income securities other than government securities & government securities.
      One can invest 50 % of total contribution into equity or up to 100 % into fixed income or government securities.

  • Sumit July 2, 2011, 7:12 PM

    I am a central govt employee. I wanted to know whether the govt. contribution to my NPS account adds to my Gross Income and if yes whether I can show this govt. contribution to my saving limit of 1 lakh for tax benefit in addition to my own contribution to NPS.

    • pattu July 2, 2011, 7:45 PM

      As of now the govt contribution forms part of y(our) taxable income. This financial year onwards this cannot be used for tax deduction.
      See this:
      Employer contribution towards NPS goes out of sec 80C

      If your employer was contributing towards NPS , his contribution was eligible under 80C , but with this budget while it will still get tax deductions , it would come out of 80C , which means that some space will be left under 80C for people whose employer was contributing in NPS . The person can now invest more in sec 80C because of this .

      If the DTC kicks next year the situation will change again. If I am not wrong the govt contribution will not be part of taxable income

Which investment you suggest PPF or NPS ? and Why?This investment should also considered for TAX saving. (For your information i have done investment in ELSS funds too..so looking for less risk )

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    • Tinks September 9, 2011, 12:53 PM

      Hi,

      As you have told that your age is 28 and you want to invest 20000 yearly for long term i.e. is 20 yrs i will suggest you to invest in mutual funds through SIP which will give you return around (10-15)%. which is more than NPS & PPF.
      At your age you should take high risk which will earn you high return,
      If you are investing then long term mutual funds in equity are exempt from tax.

    Dear Sir,

    Greetings of the Day !!

    I want to open a account in NPS. My DOB is 11/01/1976. We have some query regarding New Pension Scheme. I would be very obliged if you help me in this regard. My query is.

    If I can’t afford to maintain my NPS account than what will happen ?
    How can I close this account ?
    If we exit before age at 60 in that situation when pension will be start ?
    How many minimum years compulsory to maintain this account ?
    I want to contribute through ECS facility. If I want to put additional contribution than how can we do it ?
    How can I benefited from “Swablamban Scheme”. I want to contribute 1000/- monthly. If I increased this amount later than what will happen ? Government ceased my “Swablamban “ benefit and charge penalty on me ? To take benefit in “Swablamban Scheme” we shouldn’t increase our contribution ?
    IF I contribute 1000/- monthly and age at 60 we withdrawal 60% of our corpus than how much pension I will get ?

    I know you are very friendly about this. So I hope you will certainly help me. Your revert via mail would be awaited.

    • Tinks September 9, 2011, 12:31 PM

      Hi,
      If you cant’ afford maintaining your NPS Account then you have to bear a penalty of Rs.100 per year of default & will need to pay the minimum amount to reactive the account.
      If subscriber exits before 60 years of age, he/she has to invest 80% of accumulated saving to purchase a life annuity from IRDA regulate life insurer. The remaining 20% may be withdrawn as lump sum. On exit after age 60 years from the pension system, the subscriber would be required to invest at least 40% of pension wealth to purchase an annuity.

  • Jai September 9, 2011, 11:54 AM

    Hi,

    Looking at the NPS, I found that instead of investing in it one can go for a balanced fund from MF houses ( 60 – 80% equity 40-10% debt) and can get returns that are equivalent to NPS. The catch with NPS is that at maturity i.e. 60 yrs of age, we have to compulsory invest 40 % in annuity plans, which gives only around 6% returns. If one wants to withdraw before 60 yrs of age he is liable to invest 80% in annuity and gets only 20%. Then we get only 6% return on out 80% amount.

    To avoid all this headache just invest in some balanced fund and get the freedom of withdrawing at anytime. Then put this in any post office scheme of bank FD and get returns 8% or higher.

  • Vijay September 9, 2011, 12:12 PM

    Hi Hemant, can you please elobrate on the “annuitisation of pension wealth” in this para and also what exact it means.

    “The exit from the Swavalamban Scheme would be on the same terms and conditions on which exit from Tier-I account of NPS is permitted, that is, exit at age 60 with 40% minimum annuitisation of pension wealth and exit before age 60 with 80% minimum annuitisation of pension wealth. However, the exit would be subject to the overriding condition that the amount of pension wealth to be annuitised should be sufficient to yield a minimum amount of Rs. 1,000 per month. If the annuitised pension wealth does not yield an amount of Rs. 1,000 per month, the percentage of pension wealth to be annuitised would be increased so that the pension amount becomes Rs. 1,000 per month, failing which the entire pension wealth would be subject to annuitisation. This minimum pension ceiling may be revised from time to time.”

    I suggest to write something on this scheme so that, our forum memebers can help the ppl(Friends and relatives) who work in Unorganised sector. im doing the same

    Thanks in Advance.

    • Hemant Beniwal September 9, 2011, 12:13 PM

      Hi Vijay,
      New Pension Scheme is a defined contribution scheme that provides investment solutions for retirement needs.You will be offered two accounts -Tier I and Tier II.Its mandatory to have Tier I account,it will require minimum contribution of 6000 every year,single contribution being 500.Tier II account is an optional account which is likely to start after 6months which will allow partial withdrawal.
      It works as you turn 60, you need to invest at least 40% of the corpus in an annuity plan offered by an insurance company.In that case you can withdraw 60% of the corpus tax free or remain invested.You can withdraw earlier too,but in that case you would need to annutise 80% of the corpus.

      Hi Vikrant,

      A minimum contribution of Rs 6000 would be compulsory per year. Minimum amount per contribution is Rs 500 and a minimum of 4 contribution in a year for each subscriber account is required.

      The Tire 1 account is the basic NPS account that is non -withdrawable till retirement on in the case of death of the subscriber. In this type of account, the total corpus at the retirement age is split, whereby a minimum of 40 percent of the final corpus has to be compulsorily used to buy an annuity while the subscriber is free to withdraw the remaining 60 percent as a lum sum or in installments.

      Withdraw-able Account: A tier 2 account is available to only who are existing subscriber of the tier 1 account. The unique selling point of the tier 2 account is that money contributed into this account can be freely withdrawn as and when the subscriber wishes except for minimum balance that needs to be maintained at the end of each financial year.

      The payment mode is monthly and its limit is upto 6000 only in a year.
      The scheme is offered though 23 point-of – Acceptance or POS. The major are SEBI and its 7 associated bank, ICICI bank ,IDBI Bank, OBC, Allahbad Bank CAMC etc. Not all the branches of these POS offer the information and services for NPS. You can check the website of the particular POS or call their toll free number to get information about of this availability of this scheme.
      If subscriber exits before 60 years of age, he/she has to invest 80% of accumulated saving to purchase a life annuity from IRDA regulate life insurer. The remaining 20% may be withdrawn as lump sum. On exit after age 60 years from the pension system, the subscriber would be required to invest at least 40% of pension wealth to purchase an annuity. In case of Government employees, the annuity should provide for pension for the lifetime of the employee and his dependent parents and his spouse at the time of retirement. If subscriber does not exit the system at or before 70 years, account would be closed with the benefits transferred to subscriber in lump sum. If a subscriber dies, the nominee has the option to receive the entire pension wealth as a lump sum.

    reply from tinks
    yes contribution from Govt/employer to NPS will be included in your gross salary.
    According to me it will be injustice done on personnel working in government sector as in Public sctor undertaking or Private Sector it is EPF which is not considered in the gross salary for Income tax calculation.This NPS is forced on central government so this can be regared as double standards

  • Amit October 4, 2011, 10:05 AM

    My contribution to NPS is 49000 and government contribution is 49000 so total is 98000 the limit to have detuction is 1 lac so where i will be able to save the money
    As NPS is EET this means money withdrawn after 60 yrs will taxed
    So in this way i will be paying tax two times on the same money is this seem to be illlogical
    So pls clarify my doubts

    I work in private college and am covered under EPF scheme. My DOB is 15/12/1967. The contribution to EPF is minimum by me as well as my employer (as per the maximum salary of 6500/- though salary is much more than this.). I calculated that with this I may get a pension of about 3808/- pm (max.) after my retirement at 60 yrs.
    I want to open an NPS account also as individual citizen. Is it permitted as I am already covered by EPF scheme? If yes, then how much should I contribute towards Tier I & II to get a helthy pension assuming a realistic return.

    Thanx in advance.

Now if I retire on Dec 31, 2030, what will be my final accumulation if there is say 6% increase in salary per year, average 9-10% return from NPS and what would be my pension per month if I deposit 100% in annuity considering 9% inflation rate and say 6% return from annuity. Can you provide some formula with change in salary contribution? Thanks and regards, Abhijit

    Dear Mr Hemant
    (1). I am working in Central govt and my TIER-I contribution is 2200 and 2200 by govt. Now i have to fill income tax return, so should i deduct the total amount i.e 4400 from my salary or i can deduct only 2200 from salary for income tax rebate.
    (2). What will be my Gross salary for income tax return that include my contribution and Govt contribution also under TIER-I.
    (2). How i can subscribe for TIER-II. What will be the procedure for that.

    • Hemant Beniwal December 10, 2011, 1:17 PM

      Hi Sandeep,
      According to earlier tax rules employee & employer contribution was part of 80 CCD – however, the aggregate deduction under Section 80C, 80CCC and 80CCD is fixed at Rs.1 lakh. Plus contribution made by the employer in New pension scheme should also be included in the Total income of NPS subscriber as far as calculation of income tax is concerned. But from this financial year employers contribution in NPS is totally exempted from tax so employee contribution can be used for sec 80 ccd & employer contribution is deducted from gross taxable income. This is something similar to home loan principal comes under section 80 C & home loan interest deducted from gross income.
      You need an active Tier1 account to open a Tier 2 account. You can transfer money from Tier 2 to Tier 1 as well. Talk to your accounts department or check pfrda website.

      Hi Siddiqui,
      You purchase annuities with some lump-sum amount(purchase price) & there are almost 7-8 types of annuities (paying methods) – you have mentioned 2 of them
      Return of purchase price – where annuities are given for certain period or till death & then lump-sum amount is returned back.
      Without Return of Purchase Price – where annuities will be given till death & lump-sum(purchase price) will not be returned.
      PS: I will try to write an article on this.

  • Rohit February 21, 2012, 9:44 PM

    Hi Hemant

    I have a question about the functioning and return from NPS

    I have an NPS account since Dec 2010. I have invested over 2.5 lakhs in past 18 months in my account through SBI PFM. All I have seen so far in has been the fluctuations in NAV.

    I am unable to understand how my money has grown in these months with SBI-PFM. If I were to invest the same amount in FD I would at least received some return, but through SBI-PFM I have not seen any returns so far.

    NPS website say the following:

    “The return under NPS is market driven. Hence, there is no guaranteed/defined amount of return. The returns generated through investments are accumulated and is not distributed as dividend or bonus.”

    My concern here is that I have not seen any returns in any form since I opened this account. Market driven returns should still mean that there will be some returns (less or high) depending on how market performs.

    Secondly as mentioned on the NPS website, “returns generated on investment are accumulated and not distributed”. I want to know how they are accumulated, how do I know how much is accumulated for me, and where can I check this.

    I am not able to find any of these information and guidance so far on these issue on your or NPS website.

    I was wondering if you or anyone could give me some information in this regard on how my money grows in NPS.

    Thanks

    My age is 36 yeras now. I need a pension of minimum 25ooo after my retirement. Can I get that through NPS. How much I need to invest per month to get 25000 per month starting from age 61?

    Please let me know

  • vinay February 22, 2012, 10:47 AM

    I am working in MNC (It is a pvt ltd). Our employer is ready to contribute 10% of basic into NPS but some employees are not accepting to keep net monthly pay low(take home). Their version is they want to get more in-hand salary as their tax bracket is in 10%. Is it possible that company designs salary as flexible. Where some people can opt for NPS for one fiscal year and some people are not opting for it.
    Example: Two employees X and Y have same CTC and get net monthly pay same. After NPS contribution employer is paying Mr X a salary (Previous salary – 10% of basic) and Mr Y is getting same salary (Previous salary).

    Is it feasible in our organization?

    I’m a private sector employee. My date of birth is 10/06/1965.
    Do you advise me joining NPS at this age as I will retire in 2024?
    If yes then Ican contribute @max Rs 8000 per quarter up to 2024( Rs.5000 for tier1 and Rs. 3000 for tier2) then how much I would get as pension when I’ll attain the age 60 i.e. in year 2026 assuming CAGR of 10%?
    Will I get some lumpsum amount along with the pension?
    What would be the lumpsum amount for tier 2?
    What minimum balance that needs to be maintained at the end of each financial year in tier 2 ?

  • N k sharma March 15, 2012, 6:22 PM

    I m looking for the actual formulae with required input clearly defined.This will enable us calculate the probable amount one will get at 60 yrs of age.Regarding making a contribution towards NPS we understand we need not contribute anything.We work in a Maharatna Energy PSU and contribution towards NPS will be made by employer only.It will be a great help if u provide the right formulae.thanks

      Please give a written complaint to the branch manager and retain a copy for your records. If you don’t get a reply within 15 working days, write to the senior manager [if the post exist] or write to the regional manager. You should get a reply within 15-20 working days.

      In case you don’t get any response from regional manager, you can approach banking ombudsman with all the evidence of approaching bank manager and regional manager. Also, save and attach any responses from the bank on this matter.

      It is slow process so be patient and persistent, you will find a solution.

    • Hemant Beniwal May 23, 2012, 7:32 AM

      Hi Gaurav,
      Government employees can exit after age of 60 years from Tier I scheme and it will be mandatory for them to invest 40 per cent of pension amount to purchase an annuity through a life insurance company. In case a member wants to leave NPS before age of 60, the mandatory annuity will be 80 per cent of the pension amount.
      • Tier I: Mandatory no withdrawal pension account—Monthly contribution will be 10 per cent of basic salary and equal amount will be deposited by the Government. This amount will be kept in a non withdrawal Pension Tier I account.
      • Tier II: Voluntary withdrawal savings account—It will be voluntary Tier II withdrawal account from which individuals can withdraw money anytime. There will be no contribution from the Government in this account.

Now he also not disclosed the fact that he was a central government employee to his newly joined department as he does not have a NOC.

  • arun rs March 23, 2013, 11:06 AM

    sir,
    i am contributing some amount of appx.1500/- to dcps since december-2005 . i would like to know is there is any option of part withdrawal as in gpf subscription like govt. employees are doing who enlisted before january – 2004. after doing 20 years of service how much amount i get

    • Vikas April 7, 2013, 12:33 PM

      Hi Arun,

      Partial withdrawal in NPS is not allowed if you have tier 1 account. If any premature withdrawal is done (only 20% is allowed) it will lead to closure of account. Since it is a market link product the end corpus is not certain but can be estimated on a specific rate of return you will achieve. However the actual corpus may vary as the rate of return may vary from your assumptions.

    my dob is 31/05/1986. i am a central govt employee and my basic pay is 8790+2400. my contribution to dcps-1925. how much amount i receive on my retirement .

    • Vikas April 7, 2013, 11:30 AM

      Hi Arun,

      NPS is a market linked product and so accumulation is not certain.However, you can estimate it based on some specific rate of return you can achieve from this investment. The actual contribution may vary from any such estimation since the rate of return on your investment may vary.

  • DHARMENDRA BISHT April 11, 2013, 10:09 PM

    • Vikas April 14, 2013, 9:55 AM

      Hi Dharmendra,

      NPS is a market linked product and so the corpus you accumulate will be based on the return you generate from your investments.

  • raj April 12, 2013, 10:06 PM

    • Vikas April 14, 2013, 10:53 AM

      Hi Raj,

      NPS is a defined contribution product and the corpus you will get at retirement will be based on what return you generate. Since you can vary debt and equity exposure here, your returns will be accordingly vary each time your exposure is altered.Hence, its difficult to estimate any defined corpus.

  • Arvind sain April 16, 2013, 3:54 PM

    Sir,

    I worked at CDA Secunderabad from 13.12.2010 to 14.05.2012. The department had allotted specific PRAN No 110051272890. I resigned from there due to personal reson. Now I have joined Customs and Central Excise department Jaipur, Rajasthan on 17.01.2013. In this regard my query is that whether my PRAN No. 110051272890 will remain the same or new PRAN No. should be allotted. If new PRAN no is allotted, whether the balance of old PRAN No. will be transfered to the New PRAN and what will be the procedure?

    You are requested to the reply the query at the earliest.
    Thanking you,

    Yours faithfully,
    Arvind Sain

    • Vikas April 19, 2013, 3:26 PM

      Hi Arvind,

      The same PRAN can be transferred in case of a shift of job within governments i.e. central or state. You can get more details by writing to NSDL who is CRA for NPS or from your new employer.

  • sutanu chowdhury April 19, 2013, 11:37 PM

    Sir, I am now a central govt. employee. Recently I have seen an advertisement in newspaper for higher post in another central govt. office. I can not forward my application Through Proper Channel as my present office does not allow me. But I can apply for this job as an outsider because my qualification & other requirements fulfill for this post. In case, if I may get appointment/selected , then I have to resign the present office. While resigning , my NPS account will be deactivated. But at the same time, when I shall join my new office, then can be any problem to login a new account for myself in NPS in that office? Because I have hidden that I am a central govt. employee & informed them that I am unemployed.

    • Vikas May 28, 2013, 12:40 PM

      Dear Mr. Sutanu,

      Not sure how your organization will take this matter as for central govt employees the NPS account is transferrable.

      You can get full detail from NSDL website or from your organization.

      In your case you will have to get it confirmed from the bank.

    • Vikas June 16, 2013, 10:52 AM

      Hi Parth,

      With 22 years in your retirement you have to select an option which can generate you returns beating inflation. SIP or Systematic Investment Plans in mutual funds is a good option for investing in equities through regular savings and create wealth in the long term. How much to invest? can be identified once you know your exact requirement.

      Read the below article to know more about it

    • Vikas June 16, 2013, 12:05 PM

      Hi Mudasir,

      NPS is not a fixed benefit plan which means the amount of pension will be based on the money you accumulate at the end of the term through your contributions and returns on them.

Though i have all my release letters. I want to join SBI without mentioning about previous employee details is it possible to do that, as i am already subjected to NPS. I am joining at a lower profile due to some family and personal reasons. Please Help if you feel appropriate.

    • Vikas November 7, 2013, 10:52 AM

      Dear Rakesh,

      For any financial transactions there are KYC norms now wherein your details are very much with the organization if you are an existing investor. Since NPS has a Central Record Keeping agency which manages the details of all investors, your details will get flashed when you try to open a new account. So it may be difficult to open a new NPS account without mentioning the old account which is already running in your name.

    Hi Hemant & Team,

    First of all i appreciate your dedication to solve user’s query. I was going through many articles about Pension plan schemes and found this to be better. I have tried to compare NPS/LIC Jeevan Nidhi/SIP plans offered by various companies/ULIP’s and found this to be very good investment option. But i have few doubts, can you try to clear them?
    1. My age is 27 and i would like to open NPS account. I need suggestion – how much should i invest per month to earn pension of around Rs. 25000 per month after i attain age of 60?
    2. We don’t know best annuity agency where we should invest as of now. How can we keep an eye on best agency (PFM) to invest for annuity in future?

    Please Reply

    Regards,
    Ajay

    • Vikas November 7, 2013, 11:35 AM

      Hi Ajay,

      Thanks for the appreciation.

      1. For knowing the amount of savings required, you need to work on certain assumption such as what is the post retirement period you are looking to sustain with this income (with future rate), the return expected on your investment, etc, which will give you estimation of the corpus you have to accumulate for your retirement. Once you get the required corpus you can get the savings required. You can utilize retirement tools available online with various companies.
      2. You will have to buy annuity from any insurance company and it will mostly be immediate annuity product. You can make yourself aware on companies coming out with such products, although you have good enough time to avail this option and may experience lot of development in this area.

    Dear Sir, My age is 28 years at this time. My contribution towards the nps is 3274/- p.m. + 3274/- (Govt. Contribution). At supperannuation in the year of 2045, what will be total accumulation of my pension fund and How much money would I receive as 60% at my total contribution.
    And what will be my approximate pension amount if I invest rest 40% for 15 years.

    • Vikas November 16, 2013, 7:38 AM

      Hi Arun,

      The returns from NPS are variable since the investments are market linked. The accumulation of corpus at 2045 will be based on the returns you have achieved. So giving a definite number on how much you will receive is not viable. The amount can only be estimated based on certain assumption. For eg. if i assume the same contribution till 2045 and an annual return of 10% then you should be able to accumulate approx Rs 1.5 cr.
      You can use any online calculators to know your estimated corpus and pension amount.

    • Vikas February 11, 2014, 10:53 PM

      Hi Samir,

      NPS account some restrictions in closing the account prematurily. Most of the corpus you have to annuatized. You can check within the documents you would have received or enquire at nsdl-cra for the required information.

  • hemant taneja January 14, 2014, 11:39 AM

    hi sir, kindly let me know what is the value at the age of 60 if investment had started at the age of 35 in nps tier 1
    Regd. hemant taneja

    • Vikas February 11, 2014, 11:03 PM

      Hemant,

      The value of the fund will depend on the return you generate and total contribution you make. This is a market linked product and so no return is guaranteed..

  • marich January 28, 2014, 12:27 AM

    Hello sir,
    Good information is given in this site.Sir i gave my resignation last year,now I want to close the Tier-1 account.I have worked in bank for a year.
    Please tell me what are the procedures for closing a account.
    please reply

    Thanks

    • Vikas February 27, 2014, 6:31 PM

      Marich,

      You cannot completely withdraw from tier-1 before age 60. Whatever corpus you ahve accumulated 80% of it has to be converted into a pension and rest 20% you can withdraw.
      You can get the details on withdrawal from NSDL website which is CRA or NPS.

    • Vikas March 30, 2014, 2:53 PM

      Dinesh,

      Pension plans have many concerns related to returns due to which they are less attractive. For ESIC you can view the organizations website to know the benefits.

  • D.K. Das February 26, 2014, 11:40 PM

  • amol Jaiswal April 27, 2014, 2:39 PM

    I was employed with maharashtra state government in 9300 basic scale and served for 2 years and resigned from job before 1 year so what is procedure to apply for the amount deducted from my salary towards DEFINE CONTRIBUTIONARY PENSION SCHEME(DCPS).
    Currently I am doing job in private sector and not having DCPS scheme.

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 12:28 PM

      Amol,

      You will have to approach concerned department of your previous organization to know the procedure.

  • Vikram Sharma April 28, 2014, 6:47 PM

    Dear Mr. Beniwal

    Thanks for allowing people to ask you questions, getting answers to which is so difficult for people like me.

    I am 57 and am self-employed. Opened an NPS account 4 years ago voluntarily. Somehow, I could not contribute as much as I had planned at the time of the opening of the account.

    With an accumulated deposit in the range of Rs. one lac only, the pension amount I am likely to get will be negligible. In the circumstances, I am mulling many options. I wish to know the following so that I may take an informed decision before it is too late:

    1. Can I close this account and get my money back? If yes, may I know the conditions and formalities for the purpose.

    2. Can I continue to contribute in the account beyond 60 years of my age so as to make the annuity amount a little reasonable? If yes, the steps I need to take.

    3. My POP-SP is IDBI Bank and Fund Manager (I think) is SBI. Which is the best fund manager? I have read it is LIC. Should I change the fund manager?

    4. Am I bound to take annuity on maturity from the Fund Manager only or it can be different? Which is the best company to buy annuity from under NPS?

    I hope, I am not bothering you with too many questions.

    Regards

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 3:32 PM

      Vikram,

      1. You cannot close tier1 account in NPS. 80% of it mandatorily comes in the form of pension if you choose to exit before age 60.

      2. You cannot contribute beyond the age specified in NPS.

      3. The fund performance varies among different fund managers. You need to look into the category in which you have invested and then decide. The fund manager can be changed if you are not satisfied with your existing one.

      4. As per CRA ” Annuity Service Providers (ASPs) are be appointed by PFRDA to maintain the annuity contribution of subscribers through their various schemes. Subscribers will have the option to invest their amount into one annuity scheme upon retirement/resignation. ASPs would be responsible for delivering a regular monthly pension (annuity) to the subscriber for the rest of his/her life.”. So you will get choice of choosing ASP during retirement.

      • Vikram Sharma July 10, 2014, 5:24 PM

        Thanks for the reply which I find is unambiguous.

        I have since come to know from a NSDL personnel that as per a recent circular, total fund lying in the account can be withdrawn at the age of 60 without paying any tax in case the total amount of fund is less than Rs. two lac. It is not necessary to buy an annuity in such cases.

        I have not been able to get the concerned circular or its confirmation on the net.

        Shall feel obliged if you can arrange to get the circular or link to the circular.

        Regards.

  • rohan May 14, 2014, 9:29 PM

    If i contribute 5500 rs per month & same cntribution frm govt total 11000 per month.my age is 27 …till 60 how much amount i ll get via nps??? And if till 62 thn hw much????

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 3:40 PM

      Rohan,

      The actual will depend on the returns you generate from your investment. At this stage you can only do some estimation for the total corpus by assuming a certain rate of return.

  • shreya May 21, 2014, 2:22 PM

    i resigned my govt job.can i close my pran a/c & get amount ?how to close it plz help me sir

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 3:54 PM

      Shreya,

      You cannot close the account but can withdraw lumpsum maximum upto 20% before age 60.

  • himra May 25, 2014, 1:19 PM

    Please reply me sir

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 3:59 PM

      Himra,

      I think there is a provision of keeping the same PRAN when you shift from one govt job to another. You can get more information from CRA i.e. NSDL or from your govt. department who manages these affairs.

    • Vikas June 28, 2014, 4:03 PM

      Neeraj,

      The actual corpus you will accumulate will depend on the return you receive on your investments. At this stage you can do an estimation on the basis of some return expectation.

  • sonia rai July 1, 2014, 3:12 PM

    Dear Sir,

    My husband pass away on 15 april 2014, he was in haryana police , he is in NPS Scheme (PRAN) , but he make nomiee to his morther before marriage but that no change in nomiee , so will i get pension for the same, or his morther, or lumsum amount, if my self then wht i hv to do for the above.

    • Vikas July 20, 2014, 8:03 AM

      Sonia,

      You are one of the legal heirs of your husband estate. If your husband has written any will then the distribution of his estate will be according to it. But if not then you will have to produce the succession certificate to claim your share. Do remember that a mother stands in class 1 legal heirs and so will have equal share in your husband assets. If there is no Will then assets of the deceased are distributed equally among the legal heirs.

      In case of state employment you should be able to open a new account with same PRAN . For more details you should enquire from your existing employer.
