A Government Subscriber can change his/her POP/POP-SP by submitting a request in the prescribed format to the target POP/POP-SP. Other Subscribers too can shift both their Tier I and Tier II account together to any POP/POP-SP.
A subscriber can change the POP-SP by submission of form UoS-S5 to the POP-SP associated at present or to the new POP-SP. The subscriber may also decide to change his/her POP-SP in case of change of location. A Subscriber may also change his/her POP by submitting a UoS - S6 form to the target POP he/she wants to be associated.
One of the core attributes of NPS is portability of PRAN across sectors. The PRAN allotted under NPS is unique and portable. This unique account number will remain the same for the rest of Subscriber’s life. Subscriber will be able to use this account and this unique PRAN from any location in India. For shifting PRAN from one sector to another or from one SG to another SG, the Subscriber is required to submit Form ISS-1 [(Inter Sector Shifting from). The form ISS1 is available on the CRA website - www.npscra.nsdl.co.in] to the target Nodal Office i.e. to the Nodal Office with whom he/she will be associated after shifting. The target Nodal Office will facilitate the shifting of PRAN along with accumulated NPS contributions of source sector in the CRA system.
However, the above process is applicable only for shifting the PRAN from one sector to another. For shifting of PRAN within Central Government sector, the Subscriber is required to intimate his PRAN to the target (new) office with whom he/she will be associated after shifting. There is no need to fill form ISS-1. The new office will facilitate shifting of PRAN in the CRA system. On successful processing of monthly NPS contributions by new office, PRAN will get associated to new office in the CRA system. Further, the new office is required to update Subscriber’s employment details in the CRA system.
