Revenue Department approves e-KYC
Pension Fund Regulator PFRDA said in a statement that the process of opening an account with online e-KYC would be simpler as it would be helpful for subscribers to adopt NPS in a digital manner. The regulator said that he has got the approval of e-KYC from the revenue department.
National Pension System and Atal Pension Yojana are the two major schemes of FPRDA. NPS is a pension scheme for the organized sector while the Atal Pension Yojana is mainly for the employees of the unorganized sector.
What is NPS
It is worth noting that the National Pension System or NPS (NPS) is a government retirement saving scheme, launched by the Central Government in 2004. Since 2009, the scheme has also been opened to the people working in the private sector.
