What is eNPS?
eNPS is an online platform on which a subscriber can register and contribute to NPS. This platform is hosted by NSDL-CRA on behalf of NPS Trust. At present, any employee, whether in the government or private sector, can register in it. On this, all the registered subscribers including government employees (who have active PRAN) have the facility to make online contribution and activate Tier 2 account.
Under eNPS, government employees (under the purview of NPS) get the facility of online registration in NPS. Along with this, they are also given the facility to generate Permanent Retirement Account Number ie PRAN online. The process of eNPS is paperless. In this, a digital signature is required for registration.
