Sub: Subscriber registration under NPS –NPS – Swavalamban
Presently Swavalamban Scheme subscribers can be registered either through Aggregators or through points of presence (POPs). In order to streamline the system to cater to the swavalamban scheme objectives, it has been decided that with effect from 01/10/2013, registration of NPS-Swavalamban subscribers would be allowed only through aggregators on the NPS-Lite platform. In effect, no new NPS – Swavalambab subscriber registration would be allowed through POP’s on the all citizen model (UOS) on or after 01/01/2013.
All those POP’s who have registered NPS-Swavalamban accounts on the all citizen model (UOS) of NPS earlier would be provided a period of 3 months starting from 01/10/2013 to approach PFRDA for become aggregator by duly submitting the required documentation so that they can move their existing NPS-Swavalambab accounts to the NPS-Lite platform as an aggregator. However, post the 3 month window provided, if there is no satisfactory action on part of the POP, the subscribers would be asked to choose one of the existing aggregators for subscribed maintenance activities.
This is for the information of all concerned. The circular has also been placed on PFRDA website at http:/www.pfrda.org.in and CRA website at http://www.npscra.nsdl,co.in.
