New Pension Scheme-How good is it?

Every thing you want to know about the New pension scheme for Central Government employees of India

Dear old pension scheme employees,how will you react if your GPF/EPF balance or annual interest is not available & you cannot even take loan from it but the government invests it in some stock market and finally when you retire,they give you only 60% or 20% of the fund,the rest is forcefully put in a pension annuity.Is that not what the Contributory pension fund to a new employee is?

Every thing you want to know about the New Pension scheme
New Pension scheme is not an oasis for retirement years + The origin of NPS

Join the Central Government Contributory Pension employees Forum
I was working in central goverment under new pension scheme from jan 2004 under new pension scheme.
i have quit that job in may 2007. Now i want to get back money which i have put under NPS,I have tried a lot but i cant get my money back till now. Department says we dont know the procedure for filling form under NPS.how to get back that money?

I was appointed to Department of Posts at age 56 on January 2005 and thus come under the new pension scheme.I got retired on April 2009.The Department has not given me any benefits other than the earned leave encashment until now.When asked about the contributory pension fund,I received the reply from the authority that they don't know about the procedure.


The new pension scheme for central government employees appointed on or after 1-1-2004 has raised several questions among employees as above for which even the supreme authorities does not have a answer right now.The scheme is still in a building up phase even after 6 years of announcing it.So how long are we supposed to wait? The formation of this website on September 11 2009 is an initial part of building up a Central Government Contributory Pension employees Forum to solve such issues of new pension scheme employees and to challenge the negative aspects of the NPS.Join the Central Government Contributory Pension employees Forum.The contacts will be published here soon.

About the New Pension scheme

The New Pension Scheme of Contributory pension is applicable to all Central Government Employees who joined after 1-1-2004.It has been in the pipeline for at least five years but it finally took shape in 2007-08. Although the government was pushing for the scheme after a law providing statutory backing to the regulator was enacted, the Left parties, which were supporting the UPA government, did not allow the passage of the Bill. So, last year, the government decided to go ahead by allowing the NPS Trust to enter management agreements with fund managers.

The new pension scheme was first announced in the Indian Budget-2003-04
http://www.prsindia.org/docs/bills/1167471772/bill74_2006123074_NEW_PENSION_SCHEME_NOTIFICATION.pdf

As per the notification,
The system would be mandatory for new recruits to the central Government
service except the armed forces and the monthly contribution would be 10
percent of the salary and DA to be paid by the employee and matched by the
Central Government. However, there will be no contribution from the Government
in respect of individuals who are not Government employees. The contributions
and investment returns would be deposited in a non-withdrawable pension tier-I
account. The existing provisions of defined benefit pension and GPF would not be
available to the new recruits in the central Government service.

The CPF recovery is just like the EPF where employee puts 10% of his salary+DA and and an equal contribution is put by the employer,which in case of the CPF is the Government of India.But whereas EPF allows Loan and full amount final withdrawal,no such facility is there for CPF and the whole contribution amount is locked up until the employee plans to retire.Also there are restrictions of 40% and 80% on retirement withdrawal.As per now,no tax relief is available on the CPF lump sum maturity amount because the principal applied is EET (exempt exempt and tax) whereas the investments qualify relief under section 80 CCD up to specified limits.

The new pension scheme for central govt employees appointed on or after
1-1-2004 is described in the Swamy's hand book-2007 page 264.
It says:

Retirement at 60yrs of age:
It is mandatory to invest 40% of pension wealth in an annuity to provide
pension for life time of the employee andhis dependent parents/spouse.

Retirement before 60yrs of age:
In cases where the employees leave the scheme before 60yrs of age,80%
of pension wealth is mandatory for investment.

The hand book also says that there will be no GPF or GRATUITY for the new pension scheme employees and pension benefits will be taxable.

There is a tier-ii option under construction substituting GPF for new employees but it reduces another 10% of pay.If calculated,thus we can see that the new pension scheme employees are actually getting 10 % less pay than the old pension scheme staff.[Details of Tier ii scheme]

So What benefits does the NPS offer?The government plans to have options,A,B and C based on the proportions in equity and fixed securities.

Under Option A, 60 per cent of the assets will be held in government securities, 30 per cent in investment grade corporate bonds and 10 per cent in equity. Under Option B, the asset allocation will be 40 per cent, 40 per cent and 20 per cent, respectively. Under Option C, 50 per cent of the assets will be held in equity and the balance 50 per cent will be split between government securities and corporate bonds.

But so far,only the default option exists as per the official website of NPS-http://npscra.nsdl.co.in/

So what is the default option as in the website?

As per the present guidelines of Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority(PFRDA),contribution towards pension will be invested in the default Schemes termed Scheme of various Pension Fund Managers in the proportion of 85% in fixed income instruments and 15% in equity and equity related instruments.

As per PFRDA notification on May 2009,the contribution was thus divided for three fund managers revised-29% LIC Pension Fund,31% in UTI retirement benefit plan,and 40% in SBI Pension Fund for the Financial year 2009-10.Source-(Financial Express dtd May 3rd 2009)

The above said percentage can be decided by the employee in the future and the option of percentage to be divided to the three fund managers is given in the NPS Subscription Form.


ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE OF NPS

The administrative setup of NPS subscription is planned as:

Employee>Paying officer>DDO>PAO>PrAO>PFRDA/CRA/NSDL>Trustee Bank>Pension Fund managers

IS THIS SCHEME GOOD?

There is a wide spread rumour that the new pension scheme offers amount in Lumpsum amount and therefore it is better than the old pension scheme.How much truth is there in it?Let's see...

Please note:The below calculations are based on pay of a Group C cadre of scale 5200-20200(2400 Grade Pay) and if the government puts the whole investment in fixed instruments of 8% annual interest.The percentage of investments in equity which is speculated cannot be calculated.It purely depends on how efficient the appointed fund manager is.The principal amount of contribution without interest otherwise is:
Based on 10 years-210000(employee contribution)+210000(Govt contribution)=Rs420000
Based on 20 years-540000(employee contribution)+540000(Govt contribution)=Rs1080000

Therefore the amount of pension you get is purely based on the scheme you chose.As per now,there is no scheme which allows to put 100% in fixed instruments and the figures are just to compare the retirement benefits of old and new pension scheme.

2200 x year-26400+266884+23462=316746

If equal government contribution also provides interest, Total tier-1 amount is 316746x2=Rs633492

80% in pension fund=506794
Amt you get at the time of retiring=Rs126698+Rs 3378 monthly pension (8% interest of Rs506794 in a pension fund)+no gratuity

For old pension scheme after 10 years
GPF =316746
Gratuity=110000[1/4*(last bp+da)*(10*2)]
Total amount= Rs426746+Monthly pension Rs 3500+da (minimum pension )

Thus Comparison of old and new pension scheme gives over Rupees 3 lakh less benefits in lump sum amount and lesser monthly pension for new employees after ten years of service for below 60 years retirement.

Total amount= Rs1508320+Monthly pension approax Rs 16000+da (half of last bp+da )

Thus Comparison of old and new pension scheme gives over Rupees 10 lakh less benefits in lump sum amount and Rs 4000 lesser monthly pension for new employees after twenty years of service for below age 60 retirement.

Thus Comparison of old and new pension scheme gives over Rupees 1 lakh less benefits in lump sum amount and Rs 9700 lesser monthly pension for new employees after twenty years of service for age 60 retirement.


And some final questions:

1.The Government notifications only explains about giving a fixed pension with this amount through a annuity and not about giving this huge amount of money back to the employee at anytime.So what happens to the huge principal amount(19 lakh in the case of a VRS) when the pension ceases after the pensioner and his dependent's death?

2.Why doesn't the government give the whole money of contribution as on EPF for the employee at the time of retirement to invest in bank atleast and enjoy interest or his choice of investment?Why is the government putting restrictions of 40% and 80% to be only invested in annuity pension scheme without giving any other choice to employee's hard earned money?

3.Isn't it a violation of Payment of Gratuity Act-1972 when the employer,who is the Government of India,has decided to give no gratuity to new employees without passing the new bill?

4.While EPF provides loan upto 36 months of wage,there is no scope for any loan in CPF,the money is blocked until the employee retires.What should a new employee do in case of an urgent requirement for building a house or marriage of children?

5.No amount is taken from Member to give Pension to the Member in case of EPF Pension scheme. Employer and Govt. contributes to Pension fund @8.33% and @1.16% respectively.Whereas in CPF,the whole contribution including the employees' is restricted.










Please note:The above calculations are based on pay of a Group C cadre of scale 5200-20200(2400 Grade Pay) and if the government puts the investment in fixed instruments of 8% annual interest.The percentage of investments in equity which is speculated cannot be calculated.

    I served for 2years and 3 months (Feb 2004-June2006) in a institute under Min. of Commerce, GOI in the pay scale of 8000-275-13,500, followed by 3 years service (June2006-June2009) in a State Agricultural University, in the same pay scale.
    Currently I have got appointment in a research Institute under Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi (under Min . of Agriculture, GOI) in initial pay band of 15600-36000 with 8000 research grade pay. Through out a deduction of 10% of my salary towards New Pension Scheme was contributed.
    My query is How should I proceed to pool all my contributions towards NPS during previous services to the place of my current place of work.
    BOTH THE INSTITUTES DID NOT ALLOT ANY PPAN NUMBER.
    I do not have PRAN as of now. Should I get PRAN first then request the earlier institutes to shift my contributions to it ??

    Please advise..

    I am a officer with the Goa Government. Goa Government implemented the NPS with effect from 05/08/2005. My GPSC selection was done in April 2005. The offer letter was sent in June 2005 to which I replied immediately. But the government gave me the appointment letter only after 10/08/2005. This delay was due to the absence of the Director to sign the letter. so I missed the old pension scheme by a matter of few days; not due to my fault but due to the absence of the director. Is there a way that I can appeal to the Government to grant me the old pension scheme ? Please advice.

    Who had given the right to play with my hard earned money? They are giving this money to finance managers for the investment purpose. The returns that we are getting are nothing not even 8%. No it is somewhere around 6-7%. Those who proposed the NPS has no concern for the welfare of the Employees.

    No bureaucrats or politicians are bathers about their pension. Because they are earning crores of rupees. For them pension is nothing and they never bather about it. They will know the value of money of they work sincerely and only if they depends on their salaries.

    Government is risking our money for the sake of private investors. We should fight for our future. No bureaucrat or politician will come to help us. Let us join hands for our future

    Dear sir, thanks for giving such example to understand the concept of NPS; however i want to know something more about the investment and below are the queries:-

    1 how NAV and minimum return (like you have mentioned 8% above) are interconnected?

    2 Currently my PFM is investing my amount under SBI PENSION FUNDS PVT. LTD. SCHEME - CORPORATE-CG scheme which have NAV 10.3255 as on 17th Sep 2013; however I want to switch my investment under SBI PENSION FUND SCHEME - CENTRAL GOVT scheme which have NAV 16.2913 as on 17thSeptember, 2013. Also please advise why there is big difference between two schemes. Am I eligible to switch to SBI PENSION FUND SCHEME - CENTRAL GOVT or not. Currently I am working in UCO Bank?

    3. As per current NAV trend on my total investment INR 100000 the NAV is coming somewhere around INR 100121.71 (current NAV 10.3255*9697 (no of units purchased E, C, G types investement)as my PFM calculation)in last one year, then please advice where is the return (JUST INR 121.71 OR 0.12%). How could you say that there will be minimum yearly return 8% in case of NPS, in my case it is coming just 0.12% return on yearly basis?

    4.If I will change my investment option to Active choice (say E-25%, C-50%, G-25%) then how the calculation will be done to achieve NAV at the end of the day?

    5. Now as per current trend I dont want to invest my hard earned money in NPS. Is there option to change to previous PF option?

    We have to fight with joined hands for the following discrepancies :
    We do not have gratuity.
    Our pension benefits are taxed
    No Assured returns (currently the returns are simple interest 8.5% only and this can result in loss also)

    Old pension scheme employees contribute to GPF and withdraw the same immediately......they get 100% tax benefit for the same also the same year. Why is the govt not giving the same facility for NPS. The same can be implemented for tier-2. This is also another discrepancy

    new pension scheme is not a pension at all. if we compare it with old pension scheme it doesn't stand anywhere. In private company, employer contribution is 12% of emolument, then also no private employee says that he is going to get pension after retirement. Then how one can say after getting only 10% contribution from govt.It is just ridicules. I have one suggestion. Govt should make single account for all contribution of NPS and contribute 10% or 12% as it like. and assure all the employee to get pension as per old pension scheme. In this case all the employee will get justice and govt will also no burdened under any fiscal problem because incoming and outgoing of money from this fund will remain constant. If at all any fiscal problem arises, govt can inject some corpus in this fund as it does with any other funds.

    @ Vivek Sati- If your service in State Govt. has non-contributory pension scheme( like old pension scheme of Central Govt.), then your service will come in the purview of old pension scheme and hence NPS is not compulsory. for any assistance write at mr_debashis@rediffmail.com.

    I have a query regarding NPS contribution start date, will a new central government employee avail the benefit of contribution in NPS right after joining the service or is there a specific wait time to start contributing.

    NPS violated the provisions of Gratuity Act 1972. No Bill passed in the Parliament. However, the system "No Gratuity to employees under NPS, has been implemented. NPS Rules for subscription, management of fund are formed, whereas procedure to get back the subscribed amount by the employee and the employer (Govt) especially for those who retire/quit/resign/invalided/disabled/dies with less than 10 years of service, / VRS employees who retire before attaining age of 60 years are not formed. Thus no Gazette, NPS Act, Rules/Regulations by Finance Ministry DOPT, DOPPW neither framed and nor issued. Further I have the following queries and questions to all employees covered under NPS :-
    1. What is the minimum required service to get the pension benefits from NPS ?
    2. Gratuity is a statutory benefit paid to employees who have rendered continuous service of at least 5 years and forms a part of salary (Supreme Court) and therefore it is neither a pension benefit, nor a retirement benefit. If so why the Gratuity is termed as pension benefit under NPS and the employees are denied Gratuity?
    3. When your hard earned money is not available when you need especially during marriages of your children, to meet the expenses of customary rituals, last but not the least, the foremost duty "House building", what is the use. The life you do not enjoy during 60 years of your life, howfar it would be beneficial to you once you crossed 60 years of age ?
    4. Is there any laid down procedure for getting back the money from NPS ?
    5. NPS is purely meant for Pension and Family Pension. Since Gratuity is not paid out from NPS, why the Govt deny Gratuity to employees ?
    6. Virtually speaking Pensionary benefits are SERVICE PENSION/family pension, which forms the parts of retirement benefit. The retirement benefits are all types of Pension/Family Pension/Gratuity/leave salary. The bureaucrats (Secretaries) must be aware that Gratuity is not a pension benefit. Is not not illegal to deprive Gratuity to employees on the reason that they are covered under NPS ?
