NPS is currently regulated by Pension Fund Regulatory Development Authority. The government is planning to separate the PFRDA and National Pension System Trust, which has been set up by PFRDA to takes care of assets and funds under the NPS.
A PFRDA document describes NPS as “an easily accessible, low cost, tax-efficient, flexible and portable retirement savings account. Under the NPS, the individual contributes to his retirement account and also his employer can also co-contribute for the social security/welfare of the individual.”
“NPS is designed on Defined contribution basis wherein the subscriber contributes to his account, there is no defined benefit that would be available at the time of exit from the system and the accumulated wealth depends on the contributions made and the income generated from investment of such wealth.”
