Expected DA from Jan 2014 – Rates of Children Education Allowance may be revised again…!

Expected DA from Jan 2014 – Rates of Children Education Allowance may be revised again…!

All Central Government Employees and Pensioners are expecting to hear the announcement of hike in the Dearness allowance by 10% from July 2013.

The Union Cabinet Committee may take the agenda point for approval on DA in the next meeting, which will be held on 19.9.2013 (Thursday).
Following the approval on DA, the total DA will go upto 90% and the DA may cross 100% very soon..!
As per the recommendations of 6th CPC,  particular allowances will be increased by 25% every time the Dearness allowance payable on revised pay scales goes up by 50%. Therefore, once again the allowances, including Children Education Allowance will be increased by 25%, when the DA crosses 100%.
There is a slight confusion in the calculation of 25% in increasing Children Education Allowance from Rs.1000 or Rs.1250. Ofcourse, there is lot of time to discuss and decide the calculation factor..!

PFRDA Circulars – Option to defer Annuity purchase under NPS at the time of exit

PFRDA Circulars – Option to defer Annuity purchase under NPS at the time of exit

CIRCULAR
PENSION FUND REGULATORY AND DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY

PFRDA/ 2013/14/ PDEX /9 September 17, 2013
To,
All Govt depts./PAO’s/DDO/ POP’s, CRA & other stakeholders
Dear Sir/ Madam,

Sub: Option to defer Annuity purchase under NPS at the time of exit
As per the Exit guidelines of PFRDA for National Pension System (NPS) subscribers, a subscriber on attaining the Normal Retirement Age (applicable to Govt. sector subscribers) or upon attaining 60 years – is required to compulsorily annuitize at least 40% of your pension wealth and the remaining 60% can be withdrawn as a lump sum.

Also, a subscriber wishing to exit from NPS before the normal retirement age or before attainment of 60 years is allowed to exit subject to the condition that a minimum of 80% of accumulated pension wealth needs to be mandatorily utilized for purchase of annuity that provides for the monthly pension to the subscriber.
Presently, withdrawal of permissible lump sum withdrawal (60%) upon exit can be deferred by the subscriber to a later date but not beyond attaining 70 years of age. This is to take care of the reasons like unfavorable Market conditions or there being no requirement of the funds at that particular time.

Due to the upheavals in the market conditions including the bond market and the swings in NAV’s of the debt funds including NPS in the recent past, feedback has been received from various stakeholders that the subscribers be given an option to defer or time the annuity purchase (subject to a minimum of 40%/80% of accumulated pension wealth as applicable) akin to the deferment option for the lump sum withdrawal that is permitted currently under NPS.

PFRDA after examining the issued has approved the “Deferment option” for the annuity purchase at the time of exit from NPS with condition that such deferment can be for a maximum period of 3 years. One can initiate the annuity purchase option at any time before lapse of 3 years from the date of such deferment, by giving an application or notice to the Central Record Keeping Agency.

If no such notice is given before the lapse of 3 years from such date of deferment, the percentage of accumulated pension wealth as provided by the subscriber in the NPS withdrawal application form (subject to a minimum of 40%/80% of accumulated pension wealth as applicable) for purchase of annuity would be automatically monetized and such amount would not earn any investment income or interest to the subscriber thereafter.

This is for the information of all concerned. The circular has also been placed on PFRDA website at http://www.pfrda.org.in and CRA website at http://www.npscra.nsdl.co.in.

Yours faithfully,

PFRDA Circulars : Circular on Swavalamban Subscriber Registration through Aggregators Only

PFRDA Circulars : Circular on Swavalamban Subscriber Registration through Aggregators Only

CIRCULAR

PENSION FUND REGULATORY AND DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY

PFRDA/ 2013/15/POP/1 September 17, 2013
To,
All POP’s, Aggregators, CRA & other stakeholders
Dear Sir/ Madam,

Sub: Subscriber registration under NPS – NPS-Swavalamban

Presently Swavalamban Scheme subscribers can be registered either through Aggregators or through Points of Presence (POPs). In order to streamline the system to cater to the Swavalamban scheme objectives, it has been decided that with effect from 01/10/2013, registration of NPS-Swavalamban subscribers would be allowed only through aggregators on the NPS-Lite platform. In effect, no new NPS- Swavalamban subscriber registration would be allowed through POP’s on the all citizen model (UOS) on or after 01/10/2013.

All those POP’s who have registered NPS-Swavalamban accounts on the all citizen model(UOS) of NPS earlier would be provided a period of 3 months starting from 01/10/2013 to approach PFRDA for become aggregator by duly submitting the required documentation so that they can move their existing NPS-Swavalamban accounts to the NPS-Lite platform as an aggregator. However, post the 3 month window provided, if there is no satisfactory action on part of the POP, the subscribers would be asked to choose one of the existing aggregators for subscriber maintenance activities.

This is for the information of all concerned. The circular has also been placed on PFRDA website at http://www.pfrda.org.in and CRA website at http://www.npscra.nsdl.co.in.

Yours faithfully,
