Scheme Preference is the Pension fund schemes option chosen by the subscriber for investing the pension contribution amount. At present, there is only one default scheme for Tier I.

The contribution of all the Subscribers will be invested in this default scheme. In the default scheme, the contribution is allocated to three PFMs, viz. SBI Pension Funds Private Limited, UTI Retirement Solutions Limited and LIC Pension Fund Limited in a predefined proportion and each of the PFMs will invest the funds in the proportion of 85% in fixed income instruments and 15% in equity and equity related instruments.

For Tier II, the government subscriber has been given the flexibility to choose one out of six Pension Fund Managers(PFMs) and also the percentage in which the selected PFM will invest the funds.

The six PFMs are

  • ICICI Prudential Pension Funds Management Company Limited
  • IDFC Pension Fund Management Company Limited
  • Kotak Mahindra Pension Fund Limited
  • Reliance Capital Pension Fund Limited
  • SBI Pension Funds Private Limited
  • UTI Retirement Solutions Limited

The three asset classes are

Equity (E), Corporate bonds (C) and Government Securities (G). A subscriber choose Active Choice, he can specify the percentage in which his / her money is to be invested in these asset classes. However, allocation in Equity cannot be more than 50%. A subscriber opts for Auto Choice, system will automatically calculate the asset allocation percentages based on the subscriber's age.

At present under Tier I, there is only one scheme (default) available to Central/State Govt. employees under which 85% of your money is invested in debt instruments and upto 15% in equity and equity linked mutual funds.

Under Tier II, the sets of assets to be considered for investment are segregated based on their risk{return characteristics)

  1. Asset class E : "High return, High risk" (equity market instruments).
  2. Asset class G : "Low return, Low risk" fixed income instruments. The best example of this are central government bonds.
  3. Asset class C : "Medium return for credit risk" bearing fixed income instruments. Examples of these are bonds issued by firms.

For Central Government employees mandatorily covered under NPS, the total contribution uploaded in an employee's Tier I account is divided among three PFMs. viz. SBI Pension Funds Private Limited, UTI Retirement Solutions Limited and LIC Pension Fund Limited in a predefined ratio and units are allotted in the subscribers account. For State Government employees mandatorily covered under NPS, the total contribution uploaded in an employee's Tier I account is divided among the three PFMs. viz. SBI Pension Funds Private Limited, UTI Retirement Solutions Limited and LIC Pension Fund Limited in a ratio as decided by the State Government and units are allotted in the subscribers account accordingly. The PFMs invest the money in different financial instruments within the investment guidelines laid down by PFRDA and declare Net Asset Value(NAV) at the end of each business day. Accordingly, based on the NAV units are credited in the subscriber's account. The present value of the investment is arrived by the units held multiplied by the NAV.

In Tier II, the only difference is that the subscriber can select any one of the 6 PFMs and can also select the ratio in which his / her money is invested in one or more asset class viz. Equity, Corporate Debt and Government Bonds.

The return under NPS is market driven. Hence, there is no guaranteed/defined amount of return. The returns generated through investments are accumulated and is not distributed as dividend or bonus.

Also known as NAV, this is the price of one unit of a fund. NAV is calculated at the end of every working day between Monday and Friday. It is calculated by adding up the value of all the securities and cash in the fund's portfolio (its assets), subtracting the fund's liabilities, and dividing that number by the number of units that the fund has issued. The NAV increases (or decreases) when the value of the fund's holdings increase (or decrease). NAV of different PFMs may differ. Even the different schemes under the same PFM will have different NAV.
