Dr. Manoj kumar asked

I want to ask a question regarding the new pension scheme for new
recruits after 2004. As you are aware that the new pension scheme is
not applicable to Armed Forces what about those SSC officers who join
central/state govt after 05 years of ssc. They were not a part of NPS
in Army and on reemployment what about the counting of their period of
employment in defence for pension. Also what about those SSC officers
who were in Army before 01 Jan 2004 and join Central Govt after 2004.

For operationalisation of NPS, as per the NPS architecture, each employee covered under NPS is required to be registered in the CRA system who is linked to the administrative offices, the Drawing and Disbursing Officer (DDO), who in turn is linked to the Pay and Accounts Office (PAO) which in turn is linked to Principal Accounts Office (PrAO). Hence, your organisation has to identify the administrative offices which will be functioning as PrAO, PAO and DDO and register them before registration of the Subscribers. The steps to be followed for operationalisation of NPS and availing the services of CRA are attached with the mail. The format of the forms for registration of the administrative offices (N1 form for PrAO, N2 form for PAO and N3 form for DDO), subscribers (form S1) and the Master Creation Form is also attached. These forms are also available at our website ‘www.npscra.nsdl.co.in’ under the menu –Downloads-Forms-Autonomous bodies-Central Autonomous Bodies.

For more details about registration of the administrative offices, subscribers as well as upload of subscribers’ contribution details to CRA and remittance of funds to Trustee Bank, you may refer to the SOPs available in the downloadable section of the aforesaid website ‘www.npscra.nsdl.co.in’.
