Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) manages or regulates the National Pension Scheme (NPS), a government-backed pension scheme. Some key takeaways of NPS are that it is a low-cost investment product with excellent market-based returns, that it provides tax benefits to individuals, employees, and employers, that your investment is operated by well-known Pension Funds, and that any individual citizen of India, both resident and non-resident, between the age limit of 18 to 70 can open an NPS account. The National Pension System Trust (NPST) has introduced a WhatsApp service for NPS subscribers to submit NPS-related queries. Through a Tweet, NPS Trust has revealed that “Dear Subscribers, NPS Trust is on WhatsApp now to address your queries on NPS!! Connect with us @ 918588852130."

All NPS subscribers can contribute to Tier I & Tier II accounts and related NPS account-related services such as contribution, eNPS services, changes in scheme preference, withdrawal, exit, modifying investment pattern, and much more. One can now use the WhatsApp service from the comfort of his or her home to address all NPS-related queries.
