The NPS offers to the subscriber two approaches to invest their money:

  • Active Choice: In this, the subscriber can choose the investment mix between Equity (‘E’ Class which has high risks and high returns) which shall not be more than 50%, Corporate Bonds (‘C’Class which has medium risks and medium returns) and Government Bonds (‘G’ Class which has low risks and low returns).
  • Auto Choice: Lifecycle Fund: In Auto Choice, the Investment mix shall change according to the Age of the Subscriber. From the entry age of 18 years to 35 years, auto choice investment entails investment of 50% in Equity (‘E’ Class), 30% in Corporate Bonds (‘C’ Class) and 20% in Government Bonds (‘G’ Class). With advancing age, the investments in Equity Class and Corporate Bonds shall fall and that in Government Bonds shall rise. Under NPS, two types of accounts are available viz.
  • Tier I Account: A NON-WITHDRAWABLE account for building a retirement corpus (till age 60)

    Tier II Account: A voluntary savings facility, providing liquidity to subscribers (Withdrawal Facility, just like a saving bank account).

How different is NPS - Swavalamban from other products like savings in the bank?

NPS - Swavalamban is a pension product to ensure a monthly income after the retirement age has been attained.
NPS - Swavalamban invests a portion of the contributions in the equity (stock) market and hence there are possibilities of returns
much higher than what banks & similar financial institutions are able to offer. A portion of the corpus is invested in
equity markets which enables the corpus to grow quickly. However, unlike other equity based investment schemes where risk
of losing the money is high, in NPS - Swavalamban; the risk is reduced considerably as up to 55% of money is invested in
Government securities and up to 40% in corporate bonds.
