  • Syndicate Bank Atal Pension Yojana

    Concerns regarding the citizen’s welfare and lifestyle in their old age prompted the Government of India to launch various welfare and pension schemes enabling them to join the National Pension System (NPS). One such option is the Atal Pension Yojana which focuses especially on those who work in the unorganized sector and do not benefit from any statutory social security schemes. Under the Atal Pension Yojana, individuals between the ages of 18 to 40 can contribute an amount every month until the age of 60, post which they will receive a fixed amount ranging from Rs. 1000 to Rs. 5000 each month as pension from the Government of India. This scheme is beneficial for workers in the unorganized sector who would generally not be able to have a secure future after retirement. The Atal Pension Yojna is directed by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) through the NPS architecture.
