The contribution made in the National Pension System (NPS) can help you sail through the tough time and old age since the money invested in debt, equity and government bonds reaps dividends and is returned to you in form of annuity and lump sum. The wider perception among NPS subscribers is that the subscribers are allowed to withdraw the corpus only at the time of superannuation, but not before. However, one can make the partial withdrawals only if the subscriber has been contributing for a minimum of three years.

To widen the scope of NPS withdrawals, the Pension fund regulator PFRDA recently announced that the NPS subscribers will have the option to partially withdraw funds from their accounts for pursuing higher education or setting up new business. “Partial withdrawals will now be allowed to NPS subscribers who wish to improve their employability or acquire new skills by pursuing higher education/ acquiring professional and technical qualifications,” the PFRDA said in a statement.
