What’s Inside

The National Pension Scheme (NPS)

The national pension scheme was introduced in 2004 by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority of India (PFRDA). It encourages systematic savings for Indian citizens aged 18 to 60 by directing regular payments into an account. The corpus can then be used for retirement. To understand your investment, it's important to check your NPS balance, which depends on your contributions and investment income.

To open a Tier 1 and Tier 2 account, pay the minimum charges and make contributions after subscribing to the NPS. Then, check your balance online. You'll need your permanent retirement allotment number (PRAN) to inquire about your NPS account balance. Keep this number handy and use any of the channels listed below.
