    The NPS is a new vouluntary contributory pension scheme introduced by the Central Government . Under the National Pension System, individuals can open a personal retirement account and can accumulate a pension corpus during their work life to meet financial needs post retirement. These contributions would grow and accumulate over the years, depending on the returns earned on the investment made. When the person retires, he will be able to use these savings to take care of the needs and expenses of his family during old age.The subscribers may use the accumulated pension wealth under the scheme to purchase a life annuity from a life insurance company. Alternatively, depending on the age of the subscriber, a part of the wealth may be withdrawn as lump-sum.
