What is the National Pension System (NPS)?

The National Pension System (NPS) is a voluntary, long-term retirement savings scheme designed by the Government of India. It provides individuals with an opportunity to accumulate savings during their working years to secure a steady income post-retirement.

Choice of Investment

  • Subscribers can choose between various investment options, including Equity (E), Corporate Bonds (C), and Government Securities (G), offering a diversified portfolio tailored to individual risk preferences.

Portability and Accessibility

  • NPS accounts are portable across locations and jobs, providing subscribers with the flexibility to continue their investments seamlessly, irrespective of changes in employment or location.

Regular Income Post-Retirement
