    • Increase in Investment Limit for Pension Funds Ruled Out

      The finance ministry has ruled out the proposal to increase equity investments for pension fund subscribers. Currently, the equity investment limit is set at 15% and the government has no plans to increase that limit. The reason for not increasing the equity investment limit is because the government perceives that the volatility could lead to drop in value of funds, which in turn could result in losses for the government. A government official has stated that the option is still not completely ruled out and might be considered when there is more maturity in the stock market.

      The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has been pushing for an increase in equity investment limit for National Pension Scheme (NPS) ‘Active Choice’ option to 75% from the current 50%.
