Retirement : PFRDA Issues Draft Norms for NPS Retirement Advisers
The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) is framing rules for ‘retirement advisers’ who are expected to play a major role in propagating the New Pension System (NPS). The regulations provide a framework for their eligibility, registration process, fees and define the scope of their work and responsibility, PFRDA said in a press note.
 
As per the draft, an individual, firm or a corporate body, acting as a retirement adviser on NPS, will have to obtain a certificate of registration from PFRDA. The individual, proprietors, partners and representatives of a retirement adviser should be at least graduates. Advisers, which are a body corporate or partnership firm, would have to provide a security deposit or performance guarantee of Rs1 lakh to PFRDA; in case of individuals, the amount proposed is Rs10,000.
 
Educating and making people aware of the benefits of the retirement planning and creating awareness about pension schemes is critical for increasing participation in the voluntary segment of NPS.
