ERM stands for "Error Rectification Module". This functionality enables PAOs to rectify errors in cases of:
- Excess transfer of funds to Trustee Bank.
- Excess credit to PRAN.
- Incorrect credit (credit in PRAN 1 instead of PRAN 2)
- Withdrawal of contribution for a Non NPS Subscriber.
- The detailed standard operating procedure for ERM is available on our website www.npscra.nsdl.co.in

As per the present guidelines of Pension Fund Regulatory & Development Authority (PFRDA, the regulator for NPS), in case of government employees, contributions towards pension are invested by three Pension Fund Managers (PFMs), viz., LIC Pension Fund Limited, SBI Pension Funds Private Limited and UTI Retirement Solutions Limited as per the stipulated guidelines. There is no investment return guarantee. The returns under NPS are totally market based i.e. they are based on the NAV of the Pension Fund schemes. The benefits will entirely depend upon the amount contributed and the investment growth upto the point of exit from NPS.
