National Pension Scheme (NPS) is a Government program under The National Pension System of India. The scheme looks forward to securing employees post retirement. The Government of India adopted the system from 1st January 2004. Under the NPS, every candidate has to acquire a PRAN (permanent retirement account number) for the allotment of eligibility.

In the year 2009, The Government of India made the National Pension Scheme, a retirement saving scheme for all government as well as private sector employees.

The functioning of NPS

The NPS accounts primarily consist of two tiers. Tier 1-where you make your contributions for your retirement years. This is a non-withdrawable account and Tier 2-which is a voluntary savings facility. You are free to make withdrawals of your savings whenever you wish.

Case on National Pension Scheme

Giriraj Singh, is the HR head of a fast-growing Private Limited firm. He has suggested the NPS as the permanent retirement solution for the employees of the organization as, it has the potential to reduce the burden of contribution to employee’s PF on the firm, and offers higher tax benefits for the contribution years.

He further contends that the charges in NPS are not paid separately; instead, they are automatically deducted from the fund value each year. This differs from EPF, where individuals have to pay fund management charges separately. Furthermore, he states that this retirement plan is the only one dedicated to the long term, providing decreasing equity exposure as contributors age. Younger participants may have up to 50% equity exposure, gradually reducing to 0 by age 55.

This feature gives tremendous growth advantage to the investors. Furthermore, National Pension Scheme will make employees stay longer, as the rules may be introduced for the employees to spend at least five years with the employer in order to receive tax-free contribution of the employer.

Overall, NPS is potentially the best choice for them as employer and for their hard-working employees’ retirement.
