All employees of Central Government (excluding Armed Forces) and Central Autonomous bodies who have joined service after 1.1.2004 are mandatorily covered under NPS. Employees of State Governments that have joined the NPS and implemented NPS mandatorily through a gazette notification, for their employees who have joined after a cut-off date, are covered under NPS.
The Subscriber should submit a duly filled application in form CSRF 1, to his nodal office, i.e., DDO. The forms can be obtained from the website https://nps.karvy.com or can be collected from the subscriber’s DDO.
The DDO will collect the registration forms, verify and attest the date of birth and employment details and forward the same to the associated higher level Nodal office i.e., PAO (for Central Government) or DTO (for State Government). The PAO or DTO, as the case may be, would forward the applications to the CRA. The CRA would verify the forms, digitize the same and generate a Permanent Retirement Account for the subscriber with a unique PRAN. After successful registration, the PRAN kit (PRAN Card,Subscriber’s data and Information booklet) will be dispatched to the Nodal Offices (PAO/DTO) for onward distribution to the subscribers.
PRAN i.e., Permanent Retirement Account Number is a unique registration number allotted to each subscriber in the CRA system. This number will remain with the subscriber as long as he is in the NPS system and will not change even if he shifts to another sector due to transfer or change of jobs etc. All transactions relating to a subscriber are identified using PRAN.
