IndusInd Bank formally came into existence in the year 1994, and started with a capital of Rs. 1000 million. This amount was contributed by Indian residents and NRIs with the vision of contributing towards India’s social and economic development. Currently, IndusInd Bank boats of a wide network of more than 800 branches and over 1500 ATMs spread across the entire country. IndusInd bank also has representative offices in London and Dubai.
Government of India aims at providing old age income security to the working poor, hence wants to enable them to join the National Pension System (NPS). This is a huge step towards the welfare of people working in the unorganised sector, as it minimises the long term financial risks that they might face in their life, post-retirement. It is a pity that these labourers of the unorganised sector, who form a significant amount of the country’s labour force, are not entitled to any formal pension scheme. Unless they save money, voluntarily, for their post-retirement period, it is highly likely they will face a financially uncertain future.
Owing to an attempt to eradicate these financial uncertainties, the Government of India has introduced universal social security schemes in insurance and pension sectors for poor and underprivileged Indians. The budget for the 2015-2016 announced the launch the Atal Pension Yojana. This scheme will provide a defined pension, depending on the contribution, and its period to workers in the unorganised sector, who join the National Pension System (NPS) administered by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA).
